This is "Mexican Radio" off of Call Of The West by IRS Records artist, Wall Of Voodoo.
This song is the original "Mexican Radio". Not the one done by that shitty ass band
Authority Zero. It's originally done by my personally favorite band Wall Of Voodoo.
They released this song on their 1982 album, "Call Of The West". It is an incredible
album filled with spaghetti-western guitar, new wave synth, and indie rock greatness.
Awesome stuff. Anyway, this song is pretty easy to play. Here it goes.

Verses: D C  A C
Chorus: D  A  C

D                 C
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
A                  C
And the touch of a world that is older
D                     C   
I turn the switch and check the number
A                    C
I leave it on when in bed I slumber
D                 C
I hear the rhythms of the music
A                     C
I buy the product but never use it
D                 C
I hear the talking of the DJ
A                      C
Can't understand, just what does he say?

Chorus: Do a hard down stroke C Chord and let it ring out after end of chorus
D        A           C   D C A C
I'm on a mexican radio
        D              A       C     C  
I'm on a mexican, whoa-oh, radio...

I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the US inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende, it's a riddle

I wish I was in Tijiuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home  (THEN START VERSE CHORDS)
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say?

D C  D  C
Radio, radio (4x)

Chorus again then fade out with:

Radio, radio, what does he say?
Radio, radio...

That's it, enjoy!!!

Dear Mr. unregistered tabber- You got the chords wrong. I posted a correct version that should be up in a couple of days. The verse is G F D F. The Chorus is D A C The end part with Radio Radio is just G to F.

I want to post or [tab]
