The Tijuana Jail:The Kingston Trio.
#12 in 1959.

INTRO: G C D G

#1.
G           C                  G
We went one day, about a month ago,
                 D          G
to have a little fun in Mexico.
         C                G
We ended up in a gambling spot,
                 D                        G G7
where the liquor flowed and the dice were hot.

CHORUS:
G7          C                  G
So, here we are in the Tijuana Jail.
             D                  G
Ain't got no friends, to go our bail.
G7             C                    G        G7
So, here we'll stay, cause we can't pa-a-a-a-ay.
              D                   G
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail.

#2.
G              C                   G
I was shootin' dice, rakin' in the dough,
           D                  G   G7
and then I heard that whistle blow.
G7            C                 G
We started to run when a man in blue,
                   D                      G
said, 'Senor, come with me.. cause I want you.'

CHORUS:
G7          C                  G
So, here we are in the Tijuana Jail.
             D                  G
Ain't got no friends, to go our bail.
G7             C                    G        G7
So, here we'll stay, cause we can't pa-a-a-a-ay.
              D                   G
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail.

#3.
G                 C                          G
Just five hundred dollars and they'll set us free.
                   D                        G G7
I couldn't raise a penny, if you threatened me.
G7          C                        G
I know five hundred don't sound like much,
                D                 G
but just try to find, somebody to touch.

CHORUS:
G7          C                  G
So, here we are in the Tijuana Jail.
             D                  G
Ain't got no friends, to go our bail.
G7             C                    G        G7
So, here we'll stay, cause we can't pa-a-a-a-ay.
              D                   G
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail.

Ain't got no friends, to go our bail.

So, here we'll stay, cause we can't pa-a-a-a-ay.

I played this through a few times
off the original 45 rpm and I can't
find anything wrong with it. Why the
2 stars??? KK.
