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

CHORUS:
G                        D     G
Bubba shot the juke box last night
 D                            C       G
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
G                             D    C
Went to his truck and got a forty five
G                         D    G
Bubba shot the juke box last night

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."


CHORUS:
G#                       D#   G#
Bubba shot the juke box last night
 D#                           C#       G#
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
G#                            D#   C#
Went to his truck and got a forty five
G#                       D#   G#
Bubba shot the juke box last night


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."

CHORUS:
A                         E    A     
Bubba shot the juke box last night
 E                            D        A                                      
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
 A                            E    D                                 
Went to his truck and got a forty five
A                         D               A
Bubba shot the juke box  stopped it with one shot
A                       E    A
Bubba shot the jukebox last night
D                        A
Well he could not tell right from wrong
  E                           A
Through the teardrops in his eyes
D                      A
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
          E          E7      A
It was justifiable homicide
A                         D               A
Bubba shot the juke box stopped it with one shot
A                        E    A
Bubba shot the jukebox last night
