"This is a song about best friends"
G               C           G                    D
John Roy was a boy I knew since he was three and I was too
 G                   C              D
Grew up two little houses down from me
     G                 C 
The only bad apples on our family tree
        G                      D
Kinda ripened and rottened in our puberty
  G                   C        D
Two kindred spirits bound by destiny
         Em                   D
Well now I was smart but I lacked ambition
  C                  G                 
Johnny was wild and no inhibition 
      C          Bm                  D
was about like mixin' fire and gaso-line and he say


CHORUS:
 G    C    G                D
Hey Romeo let's go down to Mexico
  G                      C 
Chase senoritas drink ourselves silly
             G                     D
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillies
       G                            C 
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck
  G                          D
Fuzzy cat hangin from the mirror for luck
      C         Bm                                D
Said don't you know all those little brown-eyed girls
        D                     G             
Want playboys of the southwestern world
G               C          G         D
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
G               C          G         D
La la la la la la la la la la la la la


  G              C 
Long around our tenth year
          G                            D
We found two airplane tickets to the hell outta here
      G                   C                     D
Got scholarships to some small town school in Texas
               G                      C 
We learned to drink Sangrias til the dawn's early light
 G                            D                 
Eat egg Ranchero's and throw up all night 
     G                  C                              D
And tell those daddy's girls we were majorinG in the rodeo
             Em                 D
Aw but my favorite memory of school that fall
         C                           G
Was the night John Roy came runnin down in the hall
          C         Bm                          D
Wearin nothing but cowboy boots and a big som-brero and he was yellin'

to chorus

       C                    G
And I say we had a little change in plans
           C                   G
Like when Paul McCartney got busted in Japan
       C           G               D 
And I said we got waylaid when we set foot on Mexican soil
               G                              C
You see the borderman guard with the fumanchu    mustache
        G                                D
Kinda stumbled on John's pocketful of American cash
         G                     C                     D
He said Doin' a little funny business in Mexcio Ami-go
     Em                           D
But all I could think about was savin' my own tail 
         C)                        G
When he mentioned ten years in a Mexican jail
      C                        G
So I pointed at John Roy and said
                                   D  
"It's all his...now please let me go "I mean it was your idea genius."
"I was just layin' there in bed when you said"  to ending 
ENDING:
  G   C    G                 D
Hey Romeo let's go down to Mexico
  G                      C 
Chase senoritas drink ourselves silly
             G                    D
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillies
       G                          C 
Got a pocketful of cash and that old Ford truck
  G                          D
Fuzzy cat hanging from the mirror for luck
      C         Bm                              D
Said don't you know all those little brown-eyed girls
                          G   Vamp on  G C  G  D to end
Want playboys of the south Well playboys from the southwestern world
"Ah we're still best friends. Temporary cell mates." "whoo"
