[Intro]
  D   D/C#   D/B   A
  D   D/C#   D/B   A

   D            D/C#        D/B      A         Em  A   Em   A
I left, out of Tucson, with no destination in mind.
       Em            A              Em            A            D D/C# D/B A
I was runnin' from trouble and the jail-term the Judge had in mind.
         Am7            D         Am7        D
And the border meant freedom, a new life, romance,
     Am7             D            G  D/F#  Em  D  
And that's why I thought I should go,
     Em            A            Em        A         D  D/C#  D/B  A
And start my life over on the seashores of old Mexico.

    D            D/C#      D/B          A       Em  A  Em  A
My first night in Juarez, lost all the money I had.
     Em      A         Em          A       D  D/C#  D/B  A
One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad.
      Am7           D             Am7         D
But I must keep on runnin'; it's too late to turn back:
      Am7      D            G  D/F#  Em  D
I'm wanted in Tucson, I'm told.
          Em              A           Em          A       D  D/C#  D/B  A
Yeah, an' things'll blow over on the seashores of old Mexico.

     D       D/C#       D/B        A            Em  A  Em  A
Two Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't say,
        Em          A          Em          A           D  D/C#  D/B  A
Let me ride on the back of a flatbed half-loaded with hay.
  Am7          D       Am7     D
Down through Durango,Palima,Palmira,
  Am7        D     G  D/F#  Em  D
Then in the Manzanio,
        Em           A                Em           A       D  A  Bb  Bb
Where I slept IN THE SUNSHINE on the seashores of old Mexico.

(KEY CHANGE TO "Eb", PLAY THESE NEXT CHORDS, OR THE SAME ONES LISTED ABOVE WITH CAPO ON 1) 

      Eb       Bb/D       Cm         Bb           Fm  Bb  Fm  Bb
After one long siesta, I came wide awake in the night.
       Fm          Bb            Fm         Bb        Eb  Bb/D  Cm  Bb
I was startled by someone who shadowed the pale moonlight.
    Bbm         Eb           Bbm        Eb
My new-found companion, one young senorita,
    Bbm        Eb         Ab  Eb/G  Fm  Bb
Who offered a broken hello,
        Fm         Bb           Fm         Bb       Eb  Bb  B  B
To the gringo she found on the seashores of old Mexico.

(KEY CHANGE TO "E", PLAY THESE NEXT CHORDS, OR CAPO ON 2 AND PLAY THE FIRST CHORDS LISTED)

   E         E/Eb        E/Db            B        F#m  B  F#m  B
She spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never return,
        F#m      B            F#m        B          E  E/Eb  E/Db  B
For her Mexican husband, she really had no great concern.
       Bm7            E           Bm7         E  
'Cause she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
       Bm7      E        A  E/Ab  F#m  E
That's all I needed to know.
      F#m            B              F#m          B      E  E/Eb  E/Db  B
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.

      Bm7            E          Bm7          E
Yeah, she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
      Bm7       E       A  E/Ab  F#m  E
That's all I needed to know, ha, ha.
      F#m            B              F#m         B       E  E/Eb  E/Db   B
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.

Great job on it! Really enjoyed playing this song.
