Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard tuning, sometimes played live down a half step (Eb standard), plenty of room 
for chord variation but this should be a good jumping off point.


G   = [320033]
G/F#= [220033]
Em7 = [022033]
B   = [x24442]
C   = [x32013]



    G          Em7            B
She visits the place that the tour groups must have

      G               Em7      B
She's shocked to find somebody there

       G          Em7         B
With a sun-beaten face, and a silver-grey head

   C
He knelt on the floor unaware

         G         Em7          B
He said "I'm sorry madam" as he lent her his hand

   G           Em7          B
"I know I must be a strange sight

         G           Em7           B
But I've been coming here for some thirty odd years

     C
Ever since my sweet lady died




      C                Em7
But I sure am glad you listened

      C                G   G/F#
Oh, I sure am glad you came

          C                    G       G/F#
I've been waiting here in this mission

Em7
Ever since that day"




Oh, that summer we met, only fools could forget
Just how perfect a woman could be
By the time she was late, we had both set a date
In a place where she would marry me
But a gringo meant shame to their proud family name
And her father forbade it to be
So in less than a week, they found her by the creek
And the parents blamed it all on me

But I sure am glad you listened
And I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
Ever since that day

Well, her name was Marie and the day she met me
Was the worst day of both of our lives
If it wasn't for me, I would truly believe
My sweetheart could still be alive
She said "Darling, believe. Don't you recognize me?
Though you waited here all of this time
They had shipped me away to my family in Spain
We can get on with our lives
Yeah, we still have plenty of time (just continue to play the C through this line)

'Cause I sure am glad I listened
Oh, I sure am glad I came
I made looking for you my mission
Ever since that day
Oh, I sure am glad you listened
Oh, I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
Ever since that day
And I sure am glad you listened
Oh, I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
Ever since that day
