[X 3]

Well, I [D]went home with the [A]waitress [E]
The [D]way I always [A]do [D]-[D]-[D]-[A/C#]-[A]
[D]How was I to [A]know [E]
She was [D]with the Russians, [A]too

[opening riff] X 2

I was [D]gambling in [A]Havana [E]
I [D]took a little [A]risk [D]-[D]-[D]-[A/C#]-[A]
Send [D]lawyers, guns and [A]money [E]
Dad, [D]get me out of [A]this

[opening riff] X 2 *

[D]I'm the [E]innocent [A]bystander [A]-[E]-[D]
[E]Somehow I got [A]stuck [A]-[E]-[D]
[E]Between the rock and the [A]hard place
And I'm down on my luck [opening riff] +
And I'm down on my luck [opening riff] +
And I'm down on my luck [opening riff] + *

Now I'm [D]hiding in [A]Honduras [E]
I'm a [D]desperate [E]man [D]-[D]-[D]-[A/C#]-[A]
Send [D]lawyers, guns and [A]money [E]
The [D]shit has hit the [A]fan

[opening riff] *
Send [D]lawyers, guns and [A]money... [E]
