Mark Chesnutt – “Bubba Shot The Jukebox”

G
We were all down at Margie’s bar
G
Telling stories if we had one
G
Someone fired the old jukebox up
G
The song sure was a sad one
G
A teardrop rolled down Bubba’s nose
G
>From the pain the song was inflicting
G
And all at once he jumped to his feet
G
Just like somebody kicked him

CHORUS:
G D G
Bubba shot the juke box last night
D C G
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
G D C
Went to his truck and got a forty five
G D G
Bubba shot the juke box last night

G#
Bubba ain’t never been accused of being mentality stable
G#
So we did not draw an easy breathe
G#
until he laid that colt on the table
G#
He hung his head till the cops showed up
G#
They dragged him right out of Margie’s
G#
Told him “Don’t play dumb with us, son”
G#
“Know damn well what the charge is.”
