Well my boss just said you’re fired
Dmaj7
Cause you ain’t serious about your job
Emaj7
But staring at some kind of monitor
Dmaj7 B
My head always seemed to bob
C#min
Got the strangest sense of freedom
D
When I was escorted out that door
C#min
Then I gave that one finger wave goodbye
A,A,A,A,A B,B,B,B,B
As the gas pedal hit the floor
(chorus)
E
I’m just south of corpus
D9
I got my last check in my shirt
E
I’m just south of corpus
D9 B
Life on padre beach sounds good
C#m
There’s tiny tops and parties that rock’
D B
And who can forget the beer
C#m
I’m just south of corpus (INTRO LICK OVER THESE)
A E,D9/E/ D9/ D9,D9,D9…..REST
Gas pedal get me outta here
VERSE 2
Now I got palm trees in my back yard
Hammock for 2 hung in between
My girlfriend moved here last week
She got fired same day as me
Our lives are so much better
Than they were if we’d of stayed at work
So we mailed our Ex-boss a tropical post card
Sayin THANKS FOR BEIN A JERK.
(chorus)(bridge) F#m
AT NIGHT Im singin Trop Rock
B
Somewhere on a stage
F#m
By day we’re in this hammock
D B
Drinkin Landshark and catchin rays (Chorus)
E D9 E EE/
I’m just south, she’s just south, your just south, we’re all just south of corpus, Just south of corpus
