G                             B
Guess who just got back today?
C                                                E
Those wild-eyed boys that had been away
B                                        E
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
C                                           D
But man, I still think those cats are great

G                           B
They were asking if you were around
C                                 E
How you was, where you could be found
B                                E
I told them you were living downtown
C                      D
Driving all the old men crazy


      G                                          G    A   C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
                G                                          A  C C C C B A
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town.

G                                        B
There was this chick who used to dance a lot
C                                            E
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she got
B                                              E
Man when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
C                        D
I mean she was steaming

G                             B
That night over at Johnny's place
C                                                E
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
B                         E
Man we just fell about the place
C                                                   D
If that chick don't want to know, forget her

      G                                         G          A       C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
                 G                                          A       C
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
       G                                         G       A       C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
       G                                         G       A       C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.

G                                  B                  
Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
C                        E
Down at Dino's bar and grill
B                                    E
The drink will flow and blood will spill
          C                                           D
If the boys want to fight, you'd better let them
G                                          B                                
That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song
C                                     E                                     
  The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long
B                                          E
   It won't be long till summer comes
C                                      D
Now that the boys are here again


       G                                         G         A       C
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
                G                                           A        C
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town

After that you play the chorus a few times.  Thats it!

This song is using all power chords, its pretty easy, but a GREAT SONG!
Feel free to ask me any questions!
