Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise
Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice 
With a step to your left and a flick to the right you catch the mirror way out west 
You know you're something special and you look like you're the best.

 E           B           D             A   Asus4  A
Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dancer across the Rio Grande


break   Em  Em5+  Am7  C  2x


I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV 
Two of a billion stars, it means so much to me - 
Like a birthday or a pretty view 
But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you.


chorus


bass break   C#m A F# A  2x
             C#m F# A C#m  2x


sax solo   C#m F# A C#m  4x


Hey now! Wow! Look at that! Did she nearly run you down? 
At the end of the drive, the lawmen arrive,
You make me feel alive, alive, alive!
I'll take my chance, 'cause luck is on my side
or something, I know what you're thinking
I tell you something, I know what you're thinking


Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twister across a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dancer across the Rio Grande


Her name is Rio and she don't need to understand
And I might find her if i'm looking like I can
Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande


outro  E B D A  2x

tu tu turu tu ru  (fade-out)

Change the verse chords to Em C/E Am7 C Em C/E A/C# C and it's perfect.
