Intro:
( G  Am   C   G   Am   C   G   Am   C )


G6                    Bm  
Guess who just got back today
C                       Em                Bm
Them wild eyed boys that had been away.
                 Em
Haven't changed, hadn't much to say
Am7                         D7
But, man, I still think them cats are crazy.


G                   Bm
They were asking if you were around,
C                   E
How you was, where you could be found.
   D                        Emsus
I told them you were living downtown.
Am                 D7
Driving all the old men crazy.


Chorus:
    G                                                 Am         C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
           G                           Am                   C
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
    G                                               
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town  
    Am                         C                      
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.
 
 
          (G, Am7, G/B, C, D7)



G                        Bm
You know that chick that used to dance a lot
C                    Bm                              Em
Ev'ry night she'd be on the floor shakin' what she'd got.
                     Am                               C
Man, when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot!   
                 D7
I mean she was steaming.

G                         Bm
And at that time over at Johnny's place,
C                             Eb
Well, this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face.
D             Em
Man! We just fell about the place.
            Am                     D7
If that chick don't wanna know, forget her!


    G                                                 Am         C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
           G                           Am                   C
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
    G                                               
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town  
    Am                         C                      
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.
 
 
            (G, Am7, G/B, C, D7)    

 F, C, Bm

           Em7        Am            D7                Em    F
Spread the word around, Guess who's back in town.
C               Bm             Em   Am  D9   Em
Just spread the word around.


G                        Bm
Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
C              Em
Down at Dino's bar and grill
Bm                               Em
The drink will flow and the blood will spill
           Am7                         D7
And if the boys wanna fight you better let 'em.


G                           Bm                           C
That jukebox in the corner blasting out my fav'rite song.
                        Eb                               D
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long,
              Em  
Won't be long till summer comes
Am                         D7
Now that the boys are here again.
