BOCANUTS
This is how I play it, I suppose you could do without all the D7's but that's how I do it.

(1ST VERSE)
The [G]walls are be[A]ginning to [D]move [D7]
but I [G]don’t think that [A]I ever [D]will [D7]
[G]Firmly at[A]tached to a [D]barstool [Bm]
down at the [G]South Beach [A] Bar and [D]Grill
They’re [G]screaming last [A]call but we’re still [D]having a [D7]ball
The [G]barmaid is [A]locking the [D]doors [D7]
[G]Frank’s having [A]drinks with some [D]tourists [Bm]
Telling [G]lies about how [A]often he [D]scores [D7]

(from here on out it's played the same throughtout except for * in the chorus)

(CHORUS)
Sometimes you need to be tough
Sometimes you need to beware
I’ve lived in the real world enough
We’re all here because we ain’t all there
And the barmaid is ready to deal
*Got those [G]lemons and [A]limes and [Bm]coconuts
This barstool just won’t let me go
And I’m surrounded by all of these Bocanuts

(2ND VERSE)
Now Billy and Dan and some crazy old man
I can’t believe I ever listened to them
Surrounded by nine empty six packs
On the beach at 4 A.M.
Somehow I’ve got to get home
Thank heaven I didn’t get far
Discovered by two frantic joggers
Passed out in the hood of my car

(CHORUS repeat twice)
If you’re stupid, then you need to be tough
If you’re drinking then you need to beware
I’ve lived in the real world enough
We’re all here because we ain’t all there
And the barmaid is ready to deal
Got those lemons and limes and coconuts
This barstool just won’t let me go
And I’m surrounded by all of these Bocanuts

Up to my ears in these Bocanuts
Held hostage by all of these Bocanuts
