 G                  Em         D                      G
And I dream in the morning,       that she brings me water;
G                    A       A7                      D    D7 
And I dream in the evening,      that she brings me wine.
                     G       C                  G 
Just a poor manís daughter,      from Porta Pen~asco;
      D     D7          G 
Evangelina,      Old Mexico.


G                     Em      D                G 
Thereís a great hot desert,       South of Mexicalli;
G                   A      A7                   D    D7 
If you donít have water,       youíd better not go.
                G        C                  G 
Tequilla wonít get you,       across that desert;
         D     D7           G 
to Evangelina,    in Old Mexico.



(CHORUS)

        F#m                 F                  C          G
And the Fire I feel for the woman I love,  Is driving me insane;
                D      D7                    G
knowing sheís waiting,      and I canít get there.
F#m                    F               C             G
God only knows that I rack my brain to try to find a way,
                D     D7            G
to reach that woman,      in old Mexico.



G            Em        D                   G 
And I met a kind man,      he guarded the Border;
G                        A       A7               D    D7 
He said you donít need papers,       Iíll let you go.
                     G         C                         G 
I can tell that you love her,       by the look in your eyes now;
                      D       D7            G 
Sheís the rose of the desert,     in old Mexico.

And the Fire I feel for the woman I love,  Is driving me insane;
               D        D7                    G
knowing sheís waiting,      and I canít get there.
F#m                    F                C            G
God only knows that I rack my brain to try to find a way,
               D      D7            G
to reach that woman,      in old Mexico.



 G                  Em       D                      G

 G                  A       A7                       D    D7
And I dream in the evening,      that she brings me wine.
