TOBY KEITH - Rum Is The Reason

This single was released on 10 September 2015.
I felt like I was in Hawaii or some other exotic location just listening to this song. The steel drums and the simple beat made this song so great to listen to. The energy in his vocals, the slight swing in the guitars and the witty lyrics made the song so enjoyable.

Now that Pancho Villia had a jug of Tequila

When he walked the streets of old Mexico
       Abm                                 Ebm
While Blackbeard was fleecing around the hurricane season,
         E                    F#
He didn't quit because of a girl

They couldn't drink their diamonds and pearls

I ain't getting much done but 
E                  F#
I'm having fun sailing on the deep blue sea

My whole body goes numb from a bottle of dark rum
