Verse 2 (guitar 1 plays the same thing)
        (guitar 2 plays the chords on Wah-Wah)

  Seniorita's panned in :"Chico, come-on home!"
  Santa-Anna's losing, you'll be first to go
  Sam Whosman's laughin', Davy Crocket too
  When Anna takes the Alamo the first to go is you,

Chorus 2 (same as chorus 1)

  Mornin' calm mornin'
  Ah Chico's gonna have his share
  Mornin' sad mornin'
  Heaven will be THERE-AHHHHHHHHHHH
  Mornin' sad mornin'
  What a laugh and a laugh AH AH AH AH AH AH AH!


Play Riff A 4 times (don't forget to add the vibrato on the F# half the times)
Play Riff B once
Then play only the end of it (below) 3 times.
