  G   G/F#   G/E   D

   G            G/F#        G/E      D         Am  D   Am   D
I left, out of Tucson, with no destination in mind.
       Am            D              Am            D            G G/F# G/E D
I was runnin' from trouble and the jail-term the Judge had in mind.
         Dm7            G         Dm7        G
And the border meant freedom, a new life, romance,
     Dm7             G            C  Em  Am  G/E  
And that's why I thought I should go,
     Am            D            Am        D         G  G/F#  G/E  D
And start my life over on the seashores of old Mexico.


    G            G/F#      G/E          D       Am  D  Am  D
My first night in Juarez, lost all the money I had.
     Am      D         Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad.
      Dm7           G             Dm7         G
But I must keep on runnin'; it's too late to turn back:
      Dm7      G            C  Em  Am  G/E
I'm wanted in Tucson, I'm told.
          Am              D           Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
Yeah, an' things'll blow over on the seashores of old Mexico.


     G       G/F#       G/E        D            Am  D  Am  D
Two Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't say,
        Am          D          Am          D           G  G/F#  G/E  D
Let me ride on the back of a flatbed half-loaded with hay.
  Dm7          G       Dm7     G
Down through Durango,Palima,Palmira,
  Dm7      G        C  Em  Am  G/E
Then in the Manzanio,
        Am           D                Am           D       G  D  D#  D#
Where I slept IN THE SUNSHINE on the seashores of old Mexico.

(CAPO ON 1) 

      G            G/F#      G/E          D       Am  D  Am  D
After one long siesta, I came wide awake in the night.
       Am      D         Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
I was startled by someone who shadowed the pale moonlight.
    Dm7           G             Dm7         G
My new-found companion, one young senorita,
    Dm7      G            C  Em  Am  G/E
Who offered a broken hello,
       Am           D           Am          D       G  D  D#  D#
To the gringo she found on the seashores of old Mexico.

(CAPO ON 2)

   G            G/F#      G/E          D       Am  D  Am  D
She spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never return,
        Am      D         Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
For her Mexican husband, she really had no great concern.
       Dm7           G             Dm7         G 
'Cause she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
       Dm7      G        C  Em  Am  G/E
That's all I needed to know.
      Am              D           Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.

      Dm7           G             Dm7         G
Yeah, she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
      Dm7      G            C  Em  Am  G/E
That's all I needed to know, ha, ha.
      Am              D           Am          D       G  G/F#  G/E  D
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.
