Bubba Shot The Jukebox Mark Chesnutt
[G]We were all down at Margie's bar
[G]Telling stories if we had one
[G]Someone fired the old jukebox up
[G]The song sure was a sad one
[G]A teardrop rolled down Bubba's nose
[G]>From the pain the song was inflicting
[G]And all at once he jumped to his feet
[G]Just like somebody kicked him
[G]Bubba shot the juke box l[D]ast ni[G]ght
S[D]aid it played a sad song it m[C]ade him [G]cry
[G]Went to his truck and got a fo[D]rty f[C]ive
[G]Bubba shot the juke box la[D]st ni[G]ght
key change
[G#]Bubba ain't never been accused of being mentality stable
[G#]So we did not draw an easy breathe
[G#]until he laid that colt on the table
[G#]He hung his head till the cops showed up
[G#]They dragged him right out of Margie's
[G#]Told him "Don't play dumb with us, son"
[G#]"Know damn well what the charge is."
[G#]Bubba shot the juke box l[D#]ast n[G#]ight
S[D#]aid it played a sad song it m[C#]ade him c[G#]ry
[G#]Went to his truck and got a fo[D#]rty f[C#]ive
[G#]Bubba shot the juke box l[D#]ast n[G#]ight
[A]Well, the sheriff arrived with his bathrobe on
[A]The confrontation was a tense one
[A]Shook his head said, "Bubba Boy,"
[A]"You was always a dense one."
[A]Reckless discharge of a gun
[A]That's what the officers are claiming
[A]Bubba hollered, "Reckless! Hell!"
"[A]I shot just where I was aiming."
[A]Bubba shot the juke box la[E]st ni[A]ght
S[E]aid it played a sad song it m[D]ade him c[A]ry
W[A]ent to his truck and got a fo[E]rty f[D]ive
[A]Bubba shot the juke box s[D]topped it with o[A]ne shot
[A]Bubba shot the jukebox l[E]ast n[A]ight
[D]Well he could not tell ri[A]ght from wrong
Th[E]rough the teardrops in his e[A]yes
[D]Beyond a shadow of a do[A]ubt
It was jus[E]tifiable ho[E7]micide[A]
[A]Bubba shot the juke box st[D]opped it with on[A]e shot
[A]Bubba shot the jukebox la[E]st ni[A]ght
key change to A# for ending.
