Originally submitted by Randy_Floyd @ Cowboy Lyrics
I just improved on the formatting and finished laying out the chords for the rest of the song.


G                              C
Tommy was a hasher from the valley
G                                          C
He was as burned out as a building from the riots
G                                          C
He had a rockin' little girlfriend named Marla
G                                      D D C G D D C G
She was a cocktail waitress at the pit

Chorus

C                                G
Sometimes on the weekends they'd ride jet skis
C                        G
Take his little trailer to the river
C                         G
Bring along a TV to watch Rick Dees 
D                                   C         G
They were smokin' dope and snortin' crystal...Meth!

Fill

D C G  D C G

G                              C
Marla was as skinny as a fence post
G                                    C
But the powder in the baggy made her talk
G                                          C
Sometimes she wore her hair like Charlie's Angels
G                                               D D C G D D C G
You know,sometimes she looked as weird as Mr.Spock

Chorus

C                                G
Sometimes on the weekend they'd  eat fast food
C                         G
Take his El Camino to the desert 
C                           G
Ride his motorcycles in the sand dunes
D                                   C         G
They were smokin' dope and snortin' crystal...Meth!

G                       C
Tommy had a passion for firearms
G                                    C
His confidence they really seemed to bolster
G                                        C
He bought a ninety-dollar pistol for his Mar-Mar
G                                 D D C G D D C G
She kept in her little girly holster

Chorus

C                                G
Sometimes on the weekends they'd be fighting
C                                  G
Tommy thought his girl was telling lies
C                                          G
Thought that she was humping with the bass player
D                                C         G
Smoking all his dope and all his crystal...Meth!

G                            C
Tommy started suffering from delusions
G                             C
After five nights without any sleep
G                                          C
He shoved his fist through Marla's bedroom window
G                                               D D C G D D C G
Shoved his car keys through her dirty little teeth

Chorus

C                            G
Marla got her fingers on the trigger
C                                G
Grabbed poor little Tommy by the hair
C                              G
A smoking gun is laying on the counter
D                       C      G
Sirens screaming in the air....scream on and on

D C G  D C G

G                           C
Tommy was a hasher from the valley 
G                                           C
He's just a memory of his burned out little world
G                                  C
And Marla's doin' thirty years for murder
G                                              D D C G D D C G
But you know she's still his rockin' little girl

C                                     G
Someday up in heaven they'll ride jet skis
C                                  G
Scrawl their names upon the golden wall
C                                     G
Maybe up in heaven they'll watch Rick Dees
D                                  C         G
Smoke a little dope and snort some crystal...Meth!

G 
La La La La La La La La La La
