G  Am  C  G  2x

Do you know Tony Montana?
Rode a boat here from Havana
C                                G
Scar from eating pussy lines his face
Finds a day job washing dishes
Hates his life he only wishes
C                                 G
Someday in this world to find his place

       D     C
And he has a scheme
        D        Am
For his own drug regime
Cm             G
Dream Scarface dream

Hired by the gangster Omar
He climbs the ranks he's getting so far
C                               G
Selling guns & drugs out in the street
Soon he works for Frank the main boss
Doing hits and dodging chainsaws
C                               G
Getting rich and living life so sweet

       D      C
But he craves romance
       D     Am
In his Disco pants
Cm             G
Dance Scarface dance

See Tony wants to rule the world
So he kills Frank & steals his girl
C                                  G
She'll give him the son he's never had
Alas her womb is so polluted
From the powder she has tooted
C                                      G
There'll be no son and that makes Tony sad

      D            C
As he looks to the sky
         D         Am
Hear his plaintive cry
Cm          G
Fly pelican fly

Am                       C
Now he starts to get too high
On his own supply
                  D            Am    
Thinking he's the only game in town
                C                       G
And his enemies decide on a plot of regicide
                 D                Am
Its time for the king to lose his crown
Scarface must go down

Oh Tony's killers soon surround him
Sensing death has finally found him
   C                               G           
He aims his gun prepared to do his part
And as he shouts "It's not the end
Say hello to my little friend"
C                                    G
Assassins bullets pierce his fragile heart

       D          C
It's a tragic goodbye
       D        C  
He had flown so high
      D     Am
Cuban Butterfly
Cm           G
Die Scarface Die

Hi Chochek,

Thanks for the chord submission! :)

I just wanted to correct a few things, to avoid incorrect performances for the users on Ultimate Guitar. One big issue is your choice of Am – this should be a major chord (Stephen actually plays Asus4, but definitely not a minor chord). All of the Cs should also be Cadd9 chords, but that is being slightly picky. The last sections of the bridge (“It’s time for the king to lose his ...”) is also missing chords. The bridge chords should go like so: Asus4 – Cadd9 – G – D (x2) then Asus4 – G – Cadd9 and holding that Cadd9 before saying “...Scarface must go down”. Other than that, everything’s great!

Hope this helps,

Also if you plan on doing the C minor at the end of the chorus it is much easier to do it as a barre chord on the third fret, like this
