This is a feel good; laugh out loud, shit-kicking, country song. Itís sung to the tune of Cross Canadian Ragweedís ďRich Young Dumb Nymphomaniac.Ē For all you guitarists out there, itís a simple G/C/D chord progression. Start with G at the beginning of each verse and each time you play the chorus and you canít go wrong. If you want, you can give a little mute to each chord to add that bluesy feel. Itís a great song to play when youíre at a party with friends and you want to get the drunks to laughing. Hope you have as much with it as I had writing it!

ďJust Like ThatĒ
V1
Belly up to the bar, at a place cross town
I was settin em up and I knockin em down
Beltin out the words to every country song
Enjoying my buzz until she came along

Chorus
Just like that, she had me down on my knees
Just like that, she had me beggin her please
With just one look, she knocked me down to the mat
I was out for the count, Just like that

V2
She was a pretty little thing sittin way in the back
With legs to her neck, in a dress that was black
She smiled at me, I almost fell out my chair
She looked so good, I couldnít help but stare

Chorus
Just like that, she had me down on my knees
Just like that, she had me beggin her please
With just one look, she knocked me down to the mat
I was out for the count, Just like that

V3
Well the time had come for me to make my move
I was feeling ten feet tall and bullet proof
I walked on over, and I sat on down
Someone tapped my shoulder, I looked up with a frown

V4
There was a man standing there, looking daggers at me
He was the biggest some bitch that I had ever seen
I told him take a hike, but he didnít even start
I stood up, then everything went dark

Chorus
Just like that, he knocked me down to my knees
Just like that, he had me beggin him please
With just one shot, he put me flat on my back
I was out for the count, Just like that

V5 (Slowly, Strum each chord and let it ring)
Well the next thing I knew, I was down on the floor
He took her arm, was walking her to the door
She looked back at me, and she blew me a kiss
Thatís one girl, that Iím not gonna miss

(One more time, just for the hell of it!!!)

Chorus
Just like that, she had me down on my knees
Just like that, she had me beggin her please
With just one look, she knocked me down to the mat
I was out for the count, Just like that.
