Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I don't use bar chords for this, for Bm I like the 003321 (capo III). I wrote this out 
to have
the whole song w/ lyrics, the chords are the same as anybody. Don't worry about being on 
the beat with your singing,
it works well with this style of music.

Robert Earl Keen Jr.
"Gringo Honeymoon"

Capo III

Intro
Asus, A, Asus, A

A                     Bm
We were standing on a mountain top

D                        A
Where the cactus flowers grow

A                      Bm
I was wishing that the world would stop,

D                         A
When you said we'd better go.

A                            Bm
We took a rowboat 'cross the Rio Grande,

D                     A
Captain Pablo was our guide.

A                    G
For two dollars in a weathered hand

D                        A
He rowed us to the other side.

E
And we were dreamin' like

F#m
The end was not in sight

D                       A
And we dreamed all afternoon.

E
We asked the world to wait

F#m
So we could celebrate

D (ring)      Asus, A, Asus, A
a Gringo Honeymoon

A                        Bm
We stepped out onto the golden sand

D                            A
The sun was high and burning down

A                         Bm
Rented donkeys from an old blind man

D              A
Saddled up and rode to town

A                      Bm
Tied our donkeys to an ironwood tree

D                                A
By the street where the children play

A                            G
We walked in the first place we could see

D                        A
Servin' cold beer in the shade

E
We were drinkin' like

F#m
the end was not in sight

D                     A
And we drank all afternoon

E
We asked the world to wait

F#m
so we could celebrate

D (ring)      Asus, A, Asus, A
A gringo honeymoon

A                          Bm
Met a cowboy who said that he

D                     A
Was running from the DEA

A                         Bm
He left a home, a wife, a family

D                   A
When he made his getaway

A                                   Bm
We followed him on down a street of dust

D                        A
To his one room run-down shack

A                           G
He blew a smoke ring and he smiled at us

D                   A
I ain't never goin' back

E
We were flyin' like

F#m
the end was not in sight

D                      A
And we soared all afternoon

E
We asked the world to wait

F#m
so we could celebrate

D (ring)      Asus, A, Asus, A
A gringo honeymoon

A                                   Bm
He said there's one last place that you should go

D                             A
He took us to the town's best bar

A                     Bm
He knew a crusty caballero

D                               A
Who played an old gut string guitar

A                       Bm
And he sang like Marty Robbins could

D                       A
Played like no one I've known

A                        G
For a while we knew that life was good

D                        A
It was ours to take back home

E
We were singin' like

F#m
the end was not in sight

D                    A
And we sang all afternoon

E
We asked the world to wait

F#m
so we could celebrate

D (ring)      A
A gringo honeymoon

A (spoken)            Bm
We were standin' on a mountain top

D                        A
Where the cactus flowers grow

A                      Bm
I was wishin' that the world would stop

D           D
When you said...

             Asus, A, Asus, A (outro)
we'd better go

--End--
