[]  [G]   [Am]     [C]    [G]    [Am]     [C]    [G]    [Am]     [C] [] [G6]Guess who just got bac[Bm]k today
[C]Them wild eyed boys that[Em] had been away.[Bm]
Haven't changed, [Em]hadn't much to say
[Am7]But, man, I still think them[D7] cats are crazy.
[G]They were asking if [Bm]you were around,
[C]How you was, where y[E]ou could be found.
I t[D]old them you were living [Emsus]downtown.
[Am]Driving all the old[D7] men crazy.
Chorus:
The [G]boys are back in town, the boys are back in town[Am] [C]
I said the [G]boys are back in town. The b[Am]oys are back in town[C]
The [G]boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The [Am]boys are back in town, the [C]boys are back in town.
(G, Am7, G/B, C, D7)
[G]You know that chick that [Bm]used to dance a lot
[C]Ev'ry night she'd be [Bm]on the floor shakin' what she'd [Em]got.
Man, when I tell you [Am]she was cool, she was red hot!   [C]
I mean she was st[D7]eaming.
[G]And at that time over at J[Bm]ohnny's place,
[C]Well, this chick got up and sh[Eb]e slapped Johnny's face.
[D]Man! We just f[Em]ell about the place.
If that chic[Am]k don't wanna know, for[D7]get her!
The [G]boys are back in town, the boys are back in town[Am] [C]
I said the [G]boys are back in town. The b[Am]oys are back in town[C]
The [G]boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The [Am]boys are back in town, the [C]boys are back in town.
(G, Am7, G/B, C, D7)
F, C, Bm
Spread the [Em7]word around[Am], Guess who's [D7]back in town.[Em] [F]
[C]Just spread the [Bm]word around.[Em] [Am] [D9] [Em]
[G]Friday night they'll be d[Bm]ressed to kill
[C]Down at Dino's [Em]bar and grill
[Bm]The drink will flow and the blood[Em] will spill
And if the [Am7]boys wanna fight you better [D7]let 'em.
[G]That jukebox in the corner b[Bm]lasting out my fav'rite song.[C]
The nights are getting w[Eb]armer, it won't be long,[D]
Won't be long [Em]till summer comes
[Am]Now that the boys are here [D7]again.
