[Intro]
D  Em  A  D

[Chorus]
A DAdios, my friend, we're leaving El Paso
A DAll the Rio Grande's gone bone dry and all the stories have been told
G F#mWe're heading up north now, up the Jornada del Muerto
Em A DOn the trail of the conquistadores towards the Santa Fe sun
[Verse 1]
A DSay goodbye to those Mexican women down at The H&H Car Wash Café
A DAll their huevos rancheros and that red enchilada plate
G F#mWhere a mountain lion walked in one day, so thirsty for water, they say
Em A DBut the cops took him down inside the car wash front gate
[Chorus]
A DSo it's, "Adios, my friends," we're leaving El Paso
A DAll the Rio Grande's gone bone dry and all the stories have been told
G F#mWe're hooking it up north now, up the Jornada del Muerto
Em A DFollowing the conquistadores to the Santa Fe sun
[Interlude] D Em A D [Verse 2]
A DRemember that old cowboy song about Rosa's Cantina?
A DAround the jukebox at Rosa's, we sang it loud and we sang it long
G F#mStaring up at Mt. Cristo Rey where the cowboy rode down to his fate
Em A DTo die in the arms of Felina, man, that was a hell of a song
[Chorus]
A DSo it's, "Adios, my friends," we're leaving El Paso
A DAll the Rio Grande's gone bone dry and all the stories have been told
G F#mWe're hooking it up north now, up the Jornada del Muerto
Em A DOn the trail of the conquistadores toward the Santa Fe sun
Em A DFollowing the dry, old Rio Bravo towards the Santa Fe sun
[Outro] D Em A x2 D
