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
If he joined the [C]Army
[G]Cause these are desperate [D]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
He had a [C]pistol now
[G]These are desperate [D]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
If he robbed the [C]bank he said
[G]These are desperate [D]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
The [D]minute that he saw it he already had it spent
Well it wasn't [C]easy
[G]But these are desperate [D]times
[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
He'd let it [C]sit a while
[G]Cause these are desperate [D]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
Well it wasn't [C]easy Jack[G]
[G]These are desperate [D]times
Yea ain't that what you [C]always said
[G]These are desperate [D]times
