VERSE 1: D D6sus4 Down in Piedras Negras D D6sus4 You gotta watch yourself D D6sus4 There's a whole lotta hungry people D D6sus4 Looking to share some wealth D D6sus4 And when the oil field's busted D D6sus4 And the peso takes a dive D D6sus4 Stay off the side streets D D6sus4 If you want to come back alive CHORUS 1: A11/E Yo no busco nada A11/E I'm just standing here A11/E Minding my own business A11/E Gonna get back out of here D (intro riff) Back to the safe side VERSE 2: At the base of the bar stool There's a drain in the floor You better not go in there If you don't know what that's for It's no place to take a lady She'll get the evil eye Sizing up their prospects Sharpening up their knives CHORUS 2: No me gusta nada Yo no quiero ver Once I get across this river I'm never gonna go back there I'm staying on the safe side Staying on the safe side SOLO: (chords as for chorus) CHORUS 3: Yo no fumo mota No lo quiero ver Once I get across this river I'm never gonna go back there VERSE 3: Up in San Antonio All the pretty people know They better stay off the west side Where the black tar flows So they hide in sheltered enclaves Up around Olmos Park They've got their own policemen So they can stay out after dark Back down in Piedras Negras The children play with dirt We keep our pistols loaded So we don't get hurt CHORUS 4: (repeat and fade) No importa a nadie It's always been that way It's never gonna get no different Long as we've got our say We stay on the safe side CHORDS: D 000000 G/A x0555x G 5555xx A 7777xx D6sus4 020100 A11/E 202100 -------------------------------- John Kean keanj@agresearch.cri.nz --------------------------------
