Blake Shelton - "Playboys of the Southwestern World"
Tabbed by Dan Hogan. dhogan81@hotmail.com
Very easy song.

D D D D

This is a song about best friends

D              C
John Roy was a boy I knew
G                            D
Since he was three and I was two
G                  C                D
Grew up two little houses down from me

G                       C
The only two bad apples on our family tree
G                                 C
Kind of ripened and rotted in our puberty
G                         C        D
Two kindred spirits bound by destiny

Em                          C
Well now I was smart but I lacked ambition
G                      D
Johnny was wild with no inhibition
G                     C            D
Was about like mixin fire and gasoline
D
And hed say


G   C
Hey Romeo
G                D
Lets 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
A fuzzy cat hangin from the mirror fer luck
G                             C                 D
Said dont you know all those little brown eyed girls
D			   G             C G D
Want playboys of the southwestern world


Long around our eighteenth year
We found two airplane tickets the hell outta here
Got scholarships to some small town school in Texas

We learned to drink Sangrias 'till the dawns early light
Eat eggs Rancheros and throw up all night
And tell those Daddys girls we were majoring in a rodeo

Ah, but my favorite memory of school that fall
Was the night John Roy came runnin down the hall
Wearin nothin but cowboy boots and a big sombrero
And he was yellin

(Repeat Chorus)

And I said we had a little change in plans
Like when Paul McCartney got busted in Japan
And I said we got waylaid
When we set foot on Mexican soil

You see the boarder guard with the Fu Manchu mustache
Kind of stumbled on Johns pocket full of American cash
He said
Doin a little funny business in Mexico, Amigo

But all I could think about was savin my own tail
When he mentioned ten years in a Mexican jail
So I pointed to John Roy and said
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

(Repeat Chorus)

Ah, we're still best friends
Temporary cell mates
