[Intro]

D    G    D   A   G   D


[Verse]

D G DWell now Billy Voltaire was a piano player up from Miami way
D DHe used to play in the bars, he could sound like the stars
E7 A7Ladies would pay and pay
G D C GOne night he did wind up playin' in Havana town
D D A DNobody knew, least Billy Voltaire that these were his final sounds
[Verse]
D G DHe met up with Meritta, a dancer in from the Coast
D DHalf woman, half child, she drove him half wild
E7 A7He loved that lady the most
G D C GOne night he did find her in the arms of Shrimper Dan
D DSo he pulled a knife, took poor Danny's life
A DAnd then he turned his own cold hand
[Chorus]
D GAnd it's just a Cuban crime of passion
DMessy and old fashioned
A DYeah, that's what the papers did say
GIt's just a Cuban crime of passion
DAnjejo and knives a slashin'
A A CYeah but that's what the people like to read about
A C DUp in America, up in America
[Instrumental] D G(alt) D(alt) A(alt) G(alt) D(alt2) [Verse]
D G DWell now they never found Meritta, some people say she got ill
D DBilly Voltaire had no one to claim him,
E7 A7he was buried on pauper's hill
G D C GAnd no one talks about 'em no more, it happened just a week ago
D DBut people get by and people get high
A DIn the tropics they come and they go
[Chorus]
D GAnd it's just a Cuban crime of passion
DMessy and old fashioned
A DYeah, that's what the papers did say
GIt's just a Cuban crime of passion
DAnjejo and knives a slashin'
A A CYeah but that's what the people like to read about
A C DUp in America, up in America
