Verse 1:


A   -   -   -  |   A   -   -   -  | F#m -   -   -  |   F#m -   -   -  |
I crossed the mississippi, turned | South at San Antone

E   -   -   -  |   E   -   -   -  | D   -  -  -    |   A   -   -   -  |
A bowie knife, a wooly coat, a    | grip bag  on  my  arm.

A   -   -   -  |   A   -   -   -  | F#m -   -   -  |   F#m -   -   -  |
It's all somebody needs           | To make it through the land

E   -   -   -  |   E   -   -   -  | D   -  -  -    |   A   -   -   -  |
Walk by night, travel light       |  Cross the Rio   Grande

Chorus 1:

   F#m -  -  -    |   D   -   -   -  |
   Someone strums  a mandoline

   A   -  -  -    |   E   -   -   -  |
   Soft gulf breezes blow

   A   -  -  -    |   D   -   -   -  |
   My new life is waiting

   E   -  -  -    |   A   -   -   -  |
   In old Mexico


Verse 2: (Lyrics)


I was once a married man livin' peacefully
Hard to say exactly when the devil blinded me
There was some confussion with my sweet wife of this world
Darker times and drunken crimes a dead young working girl

Chorus 2: (Lyrics)

I left a jailer there in Caroline
Watching me from down below
My new life is waiting
In old Mexico

Bridge:

F#m -  -  -   | D  -  -  -  | F#m -  -  -  |  D  -  -  - |
Livin in the shadows          Runnin from my pain

G?  -  -  -   | A  -  -  -  | D  -   -  -  |  E  -  -  - |
Goin where the wind blows and no one knows my name


Verse 3:  (Lyrics)

In a vaquero bar in the town of Eagle Pass
Moments from my freedom, warm wiskey in my glass
Some boracho took for the man who stole his wife
He went for his forty four as I reached for my knife

Chorus 3: (Lyrics)

He never fired a second shot
He was just too slow
My new life is waiting
In old Mexico

Verse 4: (Lyrics)

I hid in the mountains south of Mazulblan
Where cool spring mountain waters meet the warm pacific sun
I pray all the miles I've traveled and all the sins I've bared
Burn away like morning fog and vanish in the air

Chorus 4: (Lyrics)

Miles beyond the border now
But many miles to go
My new life is waiting
In old Mexico
My new life is waiting
In old Mexico

yo man the solo leads you in the right direction but its a little off, many pulloffs and slides and multiple strings strikes in this. if you are a decent guitar player please tab the rest of the stuff out for newbies like me! great song too.
