         G                     D      C
we got too many gansters doing dirty deeds
 G                       D            G

   G                                    D               C
it's time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground
    G                                 D            G

Thanks for your work, Beer For My Horses is such a great song.

In the chorus, where they raise their glasses, how do you like the sounds of an F chord at "whiskey", then a C chord at "men"?
