Gordon Lightfoot - Miguel


CAPO: 2nd Fret


[INTRO:] F    Am   Asus2  Am  F   Asus2  Am    F

[VERSE 1:]
                                   Am                      F
Never had much to say, he traveled alone with no friends
                                Am                 F
Like a shadowy ghost at dawn he came and he went
                     G                Em 
Through the woodland swiftly gliding
                  Am             Dm
To the young maid he came riding
                                    G         C G
Where she'd run to meet him by the garden wall


[VERSE 2:]
                 Am                C
"Oh, my sweet Miguel, I will never tell
                  Am                    C
"No one will ever know, what I know too well"
                   F                   C
And he'd smile and lay his head on her breast
         F               C
And he'd say, "I have no fear"
         F                                      G
"They're waiting for me to cross the border, to swim the river


[VERSE 3:]
        C                F
"'Cause I've done that before
    G                  Am
"To see my true love's smiling face
   D                G
"A hundred times or more"
 F      C                 F
"Oh, my sweet Miguel" she cried
      G               C
"I'll love you till I die"


[INTERLUDE:] F   Am   F   Am   F


[VERSE 4:]
                                 Am             F
He was born to the south, in Mexico, they say
                           Am               F
The child of a man who had soon gone away
               G                 Em
But his mother loved him dearly
              Am               Dm
And she would take him yearly
                              G        C G
To the great Cathedral in St. Augustine


[VERSE 5:]
                 Am                 C
"Oh, my young Miguel, listen to the bell
            Am                 C
"Of my poverty, you must never tell"
                F                    C
And he cried himself to sleep in the night
       F                    C
And he vowed to make things right
      F                                      G
So he took the gun down from the wall and he paid a call


[VERSE 6:]
   C               F
He knew she'd understand
  G              Am
A lawman came to capture him
    D                 G
The gun jumped in his hand
 F      C                F
"Oh, Miguel", the mother cried
          G                   C
"You must run, son, or you'll die"


[INTERLUDE:] F   Am   F   Am   F


[VERSE 7:]
                                 Am                    F
So the story is told of his true love across the line
                            Am                 F
As strong as the oak and as sweet as the vine
        G                   Em
And the child she bore him
            Am               Dm
Came on the fateful morning
                          G       C  G
When they sent him to his final rest


[VERSE 8:]
                Am                 C
Oh, my sweet Miguel, listen to the bell
                 Am                       C
No one will ever know, of what I know too well
                     F                    C
Then she'd smile and lay the child on her breast
          F               C
And she'd say, "I have no fear
     F                                       G
"I'm waiting for you to cross the border, to swim the river"


[VERSE 9:]
       C                  F
'Cause you've done that before
   G                    Am
To see your true love's smiling face
  D                G
A hundred times or more
 F      C                  F
"Oh, my sweet Miguel", she cried
      G               C     G   F   C
"I'll love you till I die"
