Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers

Intro: (Steve- Capo VII)
   A           D
D:-----------------------| (a rough idea anyways)

A                                    D
  Anything you want, that you don't need
La cocaina, las armas, or the weed
Como Villa, como Zapata, como Guevara, como yo
I am Capitan of my own ship! Soy un pangero!

             E                                             D
I provide a little seen, little known, ma & pa, homegrown service to society
   F#m                 A                    E
I got your spice at a very fine price, now...Choose your variety

No radar, no runnin' lights, no radio
The torches blinking on the shore tell when to come and where to go
And I don't believe in the satellite, computer, GPS
My faith is the horizon... My compass, my best guess


              A                                      D
You name the time, you name the place, you name the contraband
        E                                  A
I will be there dark of night or light of day
I guarantee delivery by air, by sea or land
              A                  D                 A
That's how I make a lot of easy money, baby...The hard way...

Despite the bribes I pay my trade receives official censure
"But it's not just a job," as the gringos say, no "It's an adventure!"


           E               D
For every night I have run, I prefer the moon to the sun
           E               D
For every fight I have won, I prefer the knife to the gun
          E                                                D                             A
And any bridge I never burned, I never crossed, and every fight I never picked, I never lost
                                           E                              E-single strum
We got a wild blue yonder, wild frontier - ain't we got the makings of a fine, fine career!


Shore to shore the sea I run 200 kiloMEters wide
Keep your eyes peeled, head down, hand steady; throttle ready to run, then nowhere to hide
The machete, the silence and the darkness are my friends
Yeah I know I gotta a date with Fate, I know not where or when...

we'll make a lot easy money, come on, we'll make a lot of easy money, baby...
The hard way...The hard way

You name the time, you name the place, you name the contraband    }  repeat x3 and fade out
We'll make a lot of easy money baby...the hard way                }
