Desperate Times-crd

Charlie Robison

 D
 Jack he went to high school in a little Texas town
He finished up and spent most of the next year bumming round
 G
 He couldn't find  job to hold  so on a Friday night
 D
 He figured he could see the world and buy a four wheel drive
 C
If he joined the Army
 GD
 Cause these are desperate times
 D
 Well he came back four years later a little higher off the ground
Things there hadn't changes and that just really got him down
 G
 So he went of to San Antone an hour to the east
 D
 And got a job working for the San Antone police
 C
He had a pistol now
 GD
 These are desperate times
 D
 Old Jackie he got married but his ends just wouldn't meet
His wife worked at the Texas Commerce Bank just up the street
 G
 Jack he got an idea to get him out of debt
 D
 And they could live a good life and drive a new corvette
 C
If he robbed the bank he said
 GD
 These are desperate times
 G
 He had planned the whole thing and while his baby worked
 D
 He came in after hours in a black ski mask and shirt
 G
 She'd told him where the money was and that's just where he went
 D
The minute that he saw it he already had it spent
 C
Well it wasn't easy
 GD
 But these are desperate times
SOLO
 D
 He drove off to Bandera that was his home town
He had it in his mind just where he'd lay that money down
 G
 He went out to his mom's house Jack went up the hill
 D
 To bury that old suitcase full of hundred dollar bills
 C
He'd let it sit a while
 GD
 Cause these are desperate times
 G
 The bank they called the g men cause they were insured by the fed
 D
 Jill she rolled on Jack cause she was in above her head
 G
 The g men gave Jack wind of this when they made his arrest
 D
 He asked her why she turned on the one that she loved best
 CG
Well it wasn't easy Jack 
 GD
 These are desperate times
 C
Yea ain't that what you always said
 GD
 These are desperate times
