[Verse]

A
Mama Pajama rolled out of bed
                          D
And she ran to the police station
         E
When the papa found out he began to shout
                          A
And he started the investigation


[Bridge]
                 E                      A
It's against the law, it was against the law
              E                       A
What the mama saw, it was against the law


[Verse]
         A
Well the mama looks down and she spit on the ground
                        D
Every time my name gets mentioned
        E
And the papa says "Oy, if I get that boy
                                    A
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention"


[Chorus]

                D                 A
Well, I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm going
          D                  A          B          E
I'm on my way, I'm takin' my time but I don't know where
           D                 A
Goodbye to Rosie, the Queen of Corona
         A       G     D           E     A    D A E 
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard
         A       G     D           E     A    D A E 
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard

                              (break)

[Verse]

           A
Woah, in a couple of days they come and take me away
                            D
But the press let the story leak
             E
And when the radical priest come to get me released
                           A
We was all on the cover of Newsweek


[Chorus]

              D                 A
And I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm going
          D                  A          B          E
I'm on my way, I'm takin' my time but I don't know where
           D                 A
Goodbye to Rosie, the Queen of Corona
         A       G     D           E     A    D A E 
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard
         A       G     D           E     A    D A E 
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard
         A       G     D           E     A    D A E 
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard


[Outro]

This is a bit more descriptive than some of the simpler tabs of this song. I appreciate the intro.
