Braekish Boy - Frank Black

transcribed by Adam Farmer 

It starts I think with a little noodle on an open G chord.

Just play     G F# G     Bm Cm Bm      throughout.

I'm not sure about the words

This man he was a Mexican   Oh yeah
And a true Norwegian   Oh yeah
Turned into American   Oh yeah
But he felt a Mexican   Oh yeah
Down Mexico Way

He had to learn Spanish   Oh yeah
He was a walking fish   Oh yeah
He was feeling so braekish
Between Norwegian and English
He decided it was time to go
To find the people that he did not know
But the road to Mexico   Oh yeah
It sure go fast and it sure go slow   Oh yeah
It's a dangerous road

By now you know that he was foxed
By now you know he had no luck
He was smashed head on by a giant truck
Down Mexico Way.


at end play G F# G and strum that G till you run out of breath
singing Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

By now you know that he was fuct
by now you know he had no luck

down Mexico way...

Play acoustic with crazy fast strumming, a Mexican feel...
