#1. 
F                   Bb              F 
One day while I was eating beans at Smokey Joe's Café. 
F                     Bb              F 
Just sittin', diggin' on the scene at Smokey Joe's Café. 
  Bb 
A chick came walkin' through the door, that I'd never  
                F               Bb              F 
seen before..at least I'd never saw her down at Smokey Joe's  
          C                      F 
Café..and I started shakin' when she sat right now next  
      Fm Eb F C 
to me. 

#2. 
    F                 Bb               F 
Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe's Café. 
F                   Bb               F 
A chill was running down my spine at Smokey Joe's Café. 
Bb 
I could smell her sweet perfume..she smiled at me, my heart  

went boom. 
F              Bb             F 
Then everybody in the room at Smokey Joe's Café..they said,  
 C                    Bb                      F    Fm Ab 
'Man be careful, that chick belongs to Smokey Joe.' 

#3. 
F    Bb                       F       Bb 
Then from behind the counter, I saw a man, a chef hat on his  
F          Bb          
head and a knife in his hand. 
Bb                         C   Bb               C 
He grabbed me by my collar and began to shout, 'You'd better  

eat up all your beans, boy, and clear right on out!!' 
  F               Bb           F 
I know I'll never eat again at Smokey Joe's Café and so we'll  
      Bb            F 
never meet again at Smokey Joe's Café. 

#4. 
    Bb 
I'd rather eat my chili beans at Jack's or John's or Jim's or  
             F               Bb             F 
Jean's, than take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Café. 
C                      Bb                         F 
I risked my life when, that Smokey Joe, the crazy fool..
