Bm                   F     F#
I hope they're doing OK

Bm                       F      F#
I left my wife and kids back in LA

Bm                      F
I was no good at playing house

F#                   Bm
So I started heading south

F#                 G         F      F#
A busboy said "You best keep away

          Bm
From the water"

                          F     F#
La Barra Zona Rosa was my home

Bm                                  F            F#
Some guys they never heard the phrase "when in Rome"

Bm                            F
Well she knifed that stupid sailor

F#                    Bm
Now he's gonna need a tailor

F#                   G    F     F#
For his very special day away

          Bm
From the water

(switch to B major)

B                          E     F#
I thought it would be very nice

B                          E          F#
To go downtown and see the bull fight

B        D            F#
But the beast had not a chance

        G        F      F#
When I saw the lance

B                     E          F#
I heard the sound of a Volkswagen

B                                E           F#
They tied his body to the bumper and started dragging

B        D         F#     G   F   F#
I saw the blood separate away

          Bm
From the water

I hope they're doing OK
I left my wife and kids back in LA
I was no good at killing
So I started up gin milling
And I still just keep away (to this day)
From the water
