My car goes

Chicago

Every weekend to pick up some cargo 
D                         A
I think I know the bloody way by now, Frankie 
G
And turn the god damn radio down, thank you 
D
Pull over 
A
Count the money 
G
But don't count the thirty in the glove box buddy 
D             A                  G
That's for to buy Lucille some clothes 
           

[Chorus]

[I scratch and pause before the chorus, but you don't have to]

          D                   G
Bang bang bang went Frankie's gun 
           A
He shot me down Lucille (x2) 
           D
He shot me down 
           A
He shot me down 
           G
He shot me down 


[Verse 2]

D
Work zones double fines 
A
Don't pass the double lines 
G
Trailer McDonald's rest stop trailer double wide 
D                  A
I saw a man hit my mom one time, really 
G
I hurt him so damn bad I had to hide in Jersey 
D
Called my mama told her 
A
In the dresser 
G
There's ten or twenty dollars but there ain't no lesser 
D                      A                     G
That's for to take my sister to the picture show 


[Chorus]

          D                   G
Bang bang bang went Frankie's gun 
           A
He shot me down Lucille (x2) 
           D
He shot me down 
           A
He shot me down 
           G
He shot me down

[Verse 3]

D
Slip make a fender shine 
A
Frankie you're a friend of mine 
G
Got me off a bender after long legged Brenda died 
D                          A 
I thought we might be on a roll this time Frankie 
G
I could have swore the box said Hollywood blanks but 
D
You see my mama 
A
Please tell her 
G
I left a little rock in a box in the cellar 
D               A                G
That's for to wear till kingdom come 


[Chorus]

          D                   G
Bang bang bang went Frankie's gun 
           A
He shot me down Lucille (x2) 
           D
He shot me down 
           A
He shot me down 
           G
He shot me down

I give you credit for tabbing this song considering the lyrics are so confusing to take by ear, (I know, I've tried) and the chords are just as difficult. I gave it a 5 star rating but just to let you know the chorus doesn't sound right from where G goes to D with "He shot me down Lucille" I haven't listened to the song in a while so maybe that's why. Great job man!
