Bella was bored to death at South Beach,
          E
not one celebrity spotted in days.
        E
She was tired of her mood, lunchin' on beacon vegan food,
        E
she was tired of just soakin up rays.

         A
Then she saw him pull up to the stop light
            A
in that ole ragtop that she couldn't name.
         E
He said: hop inside, I'm heading South, take a ride,
             E
I'm just the next man that you're gonna blame,
B7      A                 E         E
U.S. 1, heading down U.S. 1.

Lenny said: how 'bout lunch in Key Largo,
          E
there's a fish sandwich place down the road?
      E
Kinda out in the sticks but we can be back by six,
E
never leave our area code.

        Z
Well, geography wasn't her strong point,
            A
she'd never been past the Dade Land mall.
         E
So, they stopped on the way, Lenny was happy to pay
      E
for a new thong and a purple beach ball.

[Jimmy and Clint:]
        A                    E
They're   goin Conky Tonkin, cruisin' on a weekend buzz,
       A              B7
really Conky Tonkin', doing it just because.

Havin' too much fun to turn back, they're explorers in a hotrod Ford.

They counted sea birds and cars, stopped at all the cool bars.

[Jimmy]
E
Somewhere in the middle of the seven mile bridge
         E
he said: Bella, do you wanna see the rest?
            E
She said: I haven't a care, Lenny, just take me there
         E
and they drove all the way to Key West.

[Clint:]
            A
Well, she'd never seen anything like it
   A
in all of her 26 years,
          E
Bella was feeling the groove, Lenny was makin' his move,
          E
they were quite a pair of pioneers.

[Jimmy and Clint:]
          A                 E
They goin   conky tonkin', 'cruisin down U.S. 1,
           A                B7

  End of the road?   What do you do then?
D              D         A
  Rev it up and jump that bucket to Havana.
