              A             E           A-fill
Went down to Mexico on the Fourth of July
                                E       A
I got a tattoo of a moth and a butterfly
              D                                A
Had too much time to burn, a little money to spend
                               E          A
So I bought a switchblade for each of my friends

Pablo and Dan had a plan said we gonna get rich
Put the double-cross on a double-crossin' narco snitch
Just a dirty little two man job, but it's a sure-fire win
Brother when we cut him down we gonna cut you in

Chorus:
              D                                    A
Yeah dumb and drunk as I was ya know I'd do it all again
                                     E           A
Back when I bought a switchblade for each of my friends
          D                             A           E
They were sharp enough to stab another hole in the sky
D                                 A       E
Hard enough to make the proudest diamond sigh
D                              A            E
Faster than the rockets on the Fourth of July
           F#m                   D        E    A
Strong and cruel enough to make a statue of Mary cry

Intro x2

They said amigo don't you worry now we're gonna dissappear
Just a couple of months, they said, it's been almost a year
And know that if you want that kinda money man you gotta stay brave
Federales are pullin' bodies out of shallow graves

Yeah dumb and drunk as we was ya know I'd do it all again
Back when I bought a switchblade for each of my friends
They were sharp enough to stab another hole in the sky
Hard enough to make the proudest diamond sigh
Faster than the rockets on the Fourth of July
Strong and cruel enough to make a statue of Mary cry

D A E x3
F#m D A-fill

Later in the fall I got the call, "Boy won't ya come down?
Maybe put a name with a few unlucky faces we found"
Now no matter what I do can't get my heart to mend
Somebody buried a switchblade in each of my friends

Yeah dumb and drunk as we were ya know I'd do it all again
Before I buried a switchblade with each of my friends
They were sharp enough to stab another hole in the sky      }
Hard enough to make the proudest diamond sigh               }
Faster than the rockets on the Fourth of July               } x2
Strong and cruel enough to make a statue of Mary cry        }

Intro x4
