Dm
Johnny Cool was the king
The leader of the boot boys
He'd never cause no trouble
In a rumble make some noise

He heard about some chick
And they she like to rock
He said "Come here honey"
"Let me see you lift up your frock"

Chorus
                          F#m Em
There's gonna be a little showdown
F#m Em   D
Showdown yeh,Gonna be a little
F#m Em   F#m Em   Bm
Showdown showdown yeh

Dm
Miss Lucy was a chick
He knew she like to ball
He said "Come on Lucy"
"It doesn't matter to me at all"

But Miss Lucy got a fella
With a flick knife in his hand
Johnny Cool pulls a shotgun
The man is in command
