VERSE 1:
Em              Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
Down in Mexicali,
          Em(aah)                      Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
There's a crazy little place that I know.
          Em(aah)                     Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
Where the drinks are hotter than the chilli sauce,
        B7                  B7
And the boss is a cat named Joe.

CHORUS:
           Em                   Em
He wears a red bandana, plays a blues piano,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.
           Em(aah)            Am(aah)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

VERSE 2:
          Em(aah)               Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
Well, the first time that I saw him,
       Em(aah)                  Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
He was sittin' on a piano stool.
        Em(aah)                    Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
I said "Tell me dad, when does the fun begin?"
        B7                       B7
He just winked his eye and said "Man, be cool."

CHORUS:
           Em                   Em
He wears a red bandana, plays a blues piano,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.
           Em(aah)            Am(aah)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

VERSE 3: (Double time feel, solo drums)
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) All of a sudden in walks this chick 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) Joe starts playing on a Latin kick 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) Around her waist she wore three fishnets 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) She started dancin' with the castanets 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) I didn't know just what to expect 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) She threw her arms around my neck 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) We started dancin' all around the floor 
(B  C# D#E) N.C.
(In Mexico) And then she did a dance I never saw before. 


VERSE 4: (A tempo)
   Em(aah)                Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa) 
So if you're south of the border,
       Em(aah)        Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
I mean down in Mexico,
        Em(aah)                  Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
And you wanna get straight, Man, don't hesitate,
     B7                  B7
Just look up a cat named Joe.

CHORUS:
           Em                     Em
He wears a red bandana, plays the cool piano,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.
           Em(aah)            Am(aah)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache,
     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

     Em(aah)           B7(aah)
Hey,     como est usted senorita?
     Em(aah)           B7(aah)
Hey,    come with me to  Mexico city.
     Em(aah)                        B7(aah)     
Ah you can get your kicks in Mexico.
                           Em(aah)             B7(aah)
Ha crazy, come with me baby,      come with me. (Fade to end)
