White Stripes
[Verse 1]
E
Ah, icky thump
E
Who'da thunk?
E                                  G  A
Sitting drunk on a wagon to Mexico
 
E
Ahh well
E
What a chump
E
Well my head got a bump
E                          G  A
When I hit it on the radio
 
E
Redhead señorita
E
Looking dead
E
Came and said
E
Need a bed
E           G  A
In Español
 
E
I said
E
Gimme a drink of water
E
I'm gonna sing around the collar
E                            G  A
And I don't need a microphone
 
[Chorus] (arranged for open Chord position)

[Verse 2]
E
Icky Thump
E
With a lump in my throat
E
Grabbed my coat
E
And I was freaking
E                  G A
I was ready to go!
 
E
And I swear
E
Besides the hair
E
She had one white eye
E
One blank stare
E
Looking up
    G   A
Lying there
 
E
On the stand
E
Near her hand
E
Was a candy cane
E
Black rum, sugar cane
E                G  A
Dry ice and something strange
 
E
La la la la la la la
E                 G   A
La la la la la la la
 
 
[Chorus Repeats]
 
 
[Verse 3]
E
White Americans, what
E
Nothing better to do
E
Why don't you kick yourself out
E                 E G A
You're an immigrant too
E
Who's using who
E
What should we do?
E
Well, you can't be a pimp
E            E  A  G  E
And a prostitute too
 
 
[Chorus Repeats]
E
Icky thump
E
Handcuffed to a bunk
E
Robbed blind
E
Looked around
E                   G  A
And there was nobody else
 
E
Left alone
E
I hit myself with a stone
E
Went home and learned how
E                  A  G  E
To clean up after myself
