Funny Thing About Heroes
Angry Johnny And The Killbillies
Intro: F G Am Am F Last time I saw Danny, he was having trouble breathing C G bullet in his belly and a couple fingers gone. Am F thought about him dying, like a dog as I was leaving C G Am He's the one who always said, "Take the money and run." Am F perfect plan is perfect, up until something goes wrong C G like a cowboy in a liquor store, playing hero for a day Am F funny thing about heroes, they don't last very long C G Am said Danny you're a goner man, I'm sorry I can't stay Am F Seventeen months later, I'm drinking here in Tulsa C G hear a voice behind me say, "One move and it's goodbye." Am F Says Jack I cannot tell ya, how good it is to see you C G Am remember me, you left me in that liquor store to die Am F Bartender stands frozen, like a deer caught in the headlights C G I ask him for a couple shots for me and my old friend Am F He pours a couple bourbons, his old hands they are a tremblin' C G Am I turn around real slow and I say, "Danny, how ya' been?" Am F He grins and takes the bourbon, says you know I'm gonna kill you C G I drink my shot and I say, "What the hell, it's only fair." Am F I tell him that I'm sorry, I left him for the buzzards. C G Am a pistol shot rings out, I see a cowboy standing there Am F Danny's on the floor, bleeding heavy from his belly C G last thing that cowboy hears is my Colt singing its song Am F bartender ain't movin', he says, "Man I ain't no hero!" C G Am I tell him, "Funny thing about heroes, they don't last very long" Am F Last time I saw Danny, he was dying there in Tulsa C G money from the register got me over the state line Am F Last thing I told Danny was, "Man it was good to see you." C G Am When you're feeling better, you should look me up sometime. When you're feeling better, why don't you look me up sometime. When you're feeling better, why don't you look me up sometime.
