This is a song about best friends - -

 GCadd9GD
 John Roy was a boy I knew since he was three and I was two
 GCadd9D
Grew up two little houses down from me
 GCadd9
The only bad apples on our family tree
 GD
Kinda ripened and rottened in our puberty
 GCadd9D
Two kindred spirits, bound by destiny.
 EmD
Well, now I was smart but I lacked ambition,
 CGCG/BAm
Johnny was wild and no inhibition was about like mixin' fire and
 Am7D
gasoline and he said,

*CHORUS*
 GCadd9GD
"Hey, Romeo, let's go down to Mexico
 GCadd9
Chase senoritas, drink ourselves silly,
 GD
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillys.
 GCadd9
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck,
 GD
Fuzzy cat hangin from the mirror hook.
 CG/BAmAm7D
Said don't you know all those little browneyed girls
 G
Want playboys of the southwestern world."
 Cadd9GD
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
 GCadd9GD
 Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la

 GCadd9
 Along around our 18th year,
 GD
Found two airplane tickets to the hell outta here.
 GCadd9D
Got scholarships to some small town school in Texas.
 GCadd9
We learned to drink Sangria's til the dawn's early light,
 GD
Eat Ranchero's and throw up all night,
 GCadd9D
And tell those daddy's girls we were majorin' in the rodeo.
 EmD
Aw, but my favorite memory in school that fall
 CG
Was the night John Roy came runnin' down in the hall
 CG/BAmAm7D
Wearin nothing but cowboy boots and a big sombrero and he was yellin'

*REPEAT CHORUS*

 CG
And I said we had a little change in plans,
 CG
Like when Paul McCartney got busted in Japan.
C G/B Am Am7 D **
And I said we got waylaid when we set foot on Mexican soil.
 G(1C(1
You see, the borderman guard with the fumanchu mustache
 G(1D(1
Kinda stumbled upon John's pocket of American cash.
 G(1C(1D(1
He said "Doin' a little funny business in Mexcio, Amigo?"
 Em(1D(1
And all I could think about was savin' my own tail
 C(1G(1
When he mentioned 10 years in a Mexican jail
 C(1G/B(1Am(1
So I pointed at John Roy and said
Am7(1) D **
"It's all his...now please let me go.
 ---
It was your idea, genius.

I was just layin' there in bed when you said.."

(third chorus all one strum until 'got a pocket full of cash')

 GCadd9GD
"Hey, Romeo, let's go down to Mexico
 GCadd9
Chase senoritas, drink ourselves silly,
 GD
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillys.
 GCadd9
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck,
 GD
Fuzzy cat hangin from the mirror hook.
 CG/BAmAm7D
Said don't you know all those little browneyed girls
G Cadd9 G D (play til end of song)
Want playboys of the south,

well from the southwestern world.

Ah, we're still best friends...temporary cell mates.
