Playboys Of The Sw World2-crd  Blake Shelton





[G]John Roy was a b[C]oy I knew
[G]Since he was three and [D]I was two
[G]Grew up two little ho[C]uses down from[D] me
The o[G]nly two bad apples on our f[C]amily tree
Kind of[G] ripened and rotted in our [D]puberty
[G]Two kindred spirits b[C]ound by desti[D]ny
Well no[Em]w I was smart, but I la[D]cked ambition
J[C]ohnny was wild with no inh[G]ibition
Was[C] about like mixin'[Am] fire and gasol[D]ine
And he'd say
[G]Hey R[C]omeo
[G]Let's go down to M[D]exico
[G]Chase senoritas, drink o[C]urselves silly
Show them [G]Mexican girls a couple r[D]eal hillbillies
Got a [G]pocket full of cash and that [C]old Ford truck
A f[G]uzzy cat hangin' from the [D]mirror for luck
Said d[C]on't you know all those [Am]little brown-eyed g[D]irls
Want playboys of the southw[G]estern world[C] [G] [D] [G] [C] [G] [D]
[G]Long around our e[C]ighteenth year
We found[G] two airplane tickets the hell [D]out of here
Got [G]scholarships to some [C]small town school in [D]Texas
We l[G]earned to drink Sangrias 'till the d[C]awns early light
Eat [G]eggs Rancheros and throw[D] up all night
An[G]d tell those Daddy's girls we were ma[C]joring in a [D]rodeo
Ah, but my[Em] favorite memory of sc[D]hool that fall
Was the [C]night John Roy came runnin' d[G]own the hall
Wearin [C]nothin' but cowboy b[Am]oots and a big som[D]brero
And he was yellin'
(Repeat Chorus)
And I s[Am]aid, we had a little ch[Em]ange in plans
Like when [C]Paul McCartney got b[G]usted in Japan
And [C]I said we got w[Bm]aylaid
When [Am]we set foot[G] on Mexican[D] soil
You see the [G]boarder guard with the[C] Fu Manchu mustache
Kind of st[G]umbled on John's pocket full of[D] American cash
He said
[G]"Doin' a little funny [C]business in Mexico, A[D]migo"
But all I could t[Em]hink about was savin' my own [D]tail
When he [C]mentioned ten years in a [G]Mexican jail
So I [C]pointed to [Bm]John Roy and [Am]said
"It's all [G]his now please [D]let me go"
I mean it was your idea genius
I was just layin' there in bed
When you said
(Repeat Chorus)
Ah, we're still best friends
Temporary cell mates
