1st verse:

 C
There's trouble on the streets tonight, I can feel it in my bones,

 C
I had a premonition that I should not go alone,

 C
I knew the gun was loaded, but I didn't think he'd kill,

 C
everything exploded and the blood began to spill.

 F
So baby, here's your ticket, put this suitcase in your hand,

 F
Here's a little money, now do it just the way we planned,

 C
You be cool for twenty hours and I'll pay you twenty grand.

    G
I'm sorry it went down like this, someone had to lose,

         F
It's the nature of the business it's the smugglers' blues.

           ( play intro lead 2 times )

2nd verse:

 C
The sailors and the pilots, the soldiers and the law,

 C
the pay-offs, and the rip-offs, and the things nobody saw,

 C
No matter if it's heroin, or cocaine or hash,

 C
You've got to carry weapons 'cause you allways carry cash.

 F
There's lots of shady characters, lots dirty deals,

 F
every name's an alias in case somebody squeels,

          C
it's the allure of easy money that's got a very strong appeal.

              G
Perhaps you'd understand it better, standing in my shoes,
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/glenn_frey/smugglers_blues_tab.html ]
         F                                              C
It's the ultimate enticement, it's the smugglers' blues.

3rd verse:

 C
You see it in the headlines, you hear it everyday,

 C
They say they're gonna stop it, but it does not go away,

 C
They move it through Miami, they sell it in L.A.

 C
They hide it up, I'll tell ya right, I mean it's here to stay.

 F
Departments of the govenment in Columbia and Peru,

 F
You ask any D.A. man they'll tell ya there's nothing they can do,

         C
From the office of the President right down to me and you, me and you.

             G
Well it's a losing proposition, but one you can't refuse,

         F
It's the politics of contraban, it's the smugglers blues.
