1st verse: C There's trouble on the streets tonight, I can feel it in my bones, C I had a premonition that I should not go alone, C I knew the gun was loaded, but I didn't think he'd kill, C everything exploded and the blood began to spill. F So baby, here's your ticket, put this suitcase in your hand, F Here's a little money, now do it just the way we planned, C You be cool for twenty hours and I'll pay you twenty grand. G I'm sorry it went down like this, someone had to lose, F It's the nature of the business it's the smugglers' blues. ( play intro lead 2 times ) 2nd verse: C The sailors and the pilots, the soldiers and the law, C the pay-offs, and the rip-offs, and the things nobody saw, C No matter if it's heroin, or cocaine or hash, C You've got to carry weapons 'cause you allways carry cash. F There's lots of shady characters, lots dirty deals, F every name's an alias in case somebody squeels, C it's the allure of easy money that's got a very strong appeal. G Perhaps you'd understand it better, standing in my shoes, F C It's the ultimate enticement, it's the smugglers' blues. BRIDGE:

3rd verse: C You see it in the headlines, you hear it everyday, C They say they're gonna stop it, but it does not go away, C They move it through Miami, they sell it in L.A. C They hide it up, I'll tell ya right, I mean it's here to stay. F Departments of the govenment in Columbia and Peru, F You ask any D.A. man they'll tell ya there's nothing they can do, C From the office of the President right down to me and you, me and you. G Well it's a losing proposition, but one you can't refuse, F It's the politics of contraban, it's the smugglers blues. Ending Lead:
