Em                                G

Robert's got a quick hand

         D                                          A

He'll look around the room he won't tell you his plan

Em                          G

Got a rolled cigarette

  D                                        A 

Hangin' out his mouth, he's a cowboy kid

          Em                             G

Yeah, found a six-shooter gun

           D                                    A

In his dad’s closet hidden with a box of fun things

Em                        G

I don't even know what

               D                                   A

But he's comin' for you, yeah he's comin for you, hey



Em                                    G

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

                     D                   A

You'd better run, better run, outrun my gun

Em                          G

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

             D                            A

You'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet               



Repeat Chorus


Em                               G

Daddy works a long day

              D                               A

He'll be coming home late, he's coming home late

                Em                         G

And he's bringing me a surprise

     D                                                   A

‘Cause dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice

         Em                        G

I've waited for a long time

         D                                     A

The slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger

    Em                      G

I reason with my cigarette

                      D                                    A

And say your hair's on fire you must have lost your wits, yeah
