Blake Shelton - Playboys Of The Southwestern World Lyrics

This is a song
About best friends

John Roy
Was a boy I knew
Since he was three
And I was two
Grew up two little houses
Down from me

The only two bad apples
On our family tree
Kind of ripened and rotted
In our puberty
Two kindred spirits bound by destiny

Well now I was smart
But I lacked ambition
Johnny was wild
With no inhibition
Was about like mixin
Fire and gasoline
(And he'd say)

Hey Romeo
Let's go down to Mexico
Chase senoritas
Drink ourselves silly
Show them Mexican girls
A couple of real hillbillies
Got a pocket full of cash
And that old Ford truck
A fuzzy cat hangin
From the mirror for luck
Said don't you know
All those little
Brown-eyed girls
Want playboys of the southwestern world

Long around
Our eighteenth year
We found two plane tickets
The hell out of here
Got scholarships
To some small town
School in Texas

Learned to drink Sangria
Til the dawns early light
Eat eggs Ranchero
And throw up all night
And tell those daddy's girls
We were majoring in a rodeo

Ah but my
Favorite memory
At school that fall
Was the night John Roy
Came runnin down the hall
Wearin nothin
But cowboy boots
And a big sombrero
(And he was yellin)

Hey Romeo
Let's go down to Mexico
Chase senoritas
Drink ourselves silly
Show them Mexican girls
A couple of real hillbillies
Got a pocket full of cash
And that old Ford truck
A fuzzy cat hangin
From the mirror for luck
Said don't you know
All those little
Brown-eyed girls
Want playboys of the southwestern world

And I said
We had a little
Change in plans
Like when Paul McCartney
Got busted in Japan
And I said
We got waylaid
When we laid foot
On Mexican soil
See the boarder guard
With the Fu Manchu mustache
Kind of stumbled on John's
Pocket full of American cash
He said
Doin a little funny business
In Mexico Amigo

But all I could think about
Was savin my own tail
When he mentioned ten years
In a Mexican jail
So I pointed to John Roy and said
It's all his now please let me go
Well it was your idea genius
I was just layin there in bed
When you said

Hey Romeo
Let's go down to Mexico
Chase senoritas
Drink ourselves silly
Show them Mexican girls
A couple of real hillbillies
Got a pocket full of cash
And that old Ford truck
A fuzzy cat hangin
From the mirror for luck
Said don't you know
All those little
Brown-eyed girls
Want playboys of the southwestern world

Ah we're still best friends
Temporary cell mates

  5. hrdknox2000

    Reminds me of my childhood friend Steven. My roommate moved out/dropped out of school by about this time my freshman year in college. I told Steven not to drink and drive and that I had a spare bed to sleep it off. He dropped by one night when he knocked on my dorm room door. I was already asleep for PT at 0500 that next morning. I woke up again to the sound of running water, when I discovered Steven pissing in the corner of my room. His defense: "Sorry! I thought I was pissing in your trashcan." I yelled, "Like that's any fucking better?!" A couple of hours later we were awakened by a fire drill. Still went to PT with ROTC a couple of hours later! Ahhh! The shit you can do at 18-19 years old without a problem!

  28. nemesisgenius

    If this song were released today or 5 years ago at least, this would surely be a #1 Billboard country hit for Blake. I guarantee it!!! This tune barely hit the top 20 in 2003.

  45. Ruben T

    Why did they get thrown in jail for having American money?

    Ruben T

    @Chris Nameth I'm guessing "hash" is an incomprehensible slang word for some kind of drug?


    @Emper0rH0rde Because there was so much, the police assumed it was drug money.


    Hashish, also known as hash, is made by eliminating plant material and
    collecting the trichomes from the flower tops of female cannabis plants.
    These flowers, or ‘heads’, are the most potent parts of the plant. As a
    result, the THC content of hashish typically varies from 20% to 60%.
    There are two common methods for producing hash:

    In Morocco and Lebanon, hashish is made by sifting the mature cannabis
    tops through a series of fine sieves until a resinous powder remains.
    This powder is compressed and heated to allow the resins to melt,
    binding the remaining vegetable matter. The resin is compressed into
    blocks sealed with cellophane or cloth.
    In the Indian sub-continent, hashish is made by rubbing the resinous
    tops of the plant with the hands or a leather apron. This allows the
    resins to stick together. These are then scraped off the skin or leather
    and rolled into lumps of various sizes, and later compressed into
    It’s always important to be informed! Check out the related Go Ask Alice! Q&As below for more information.


    wow you are fuck'd

    William Gilley

    Der usually large amounts of cash are for illegal purchases as it is untraceable. You know like DRUGS
