If you're down in Acuna and you ain't up to being alone
            D                                                   C                  A

They all call her her "puta" 'cause no one really knows her name.

She works the cantina, dancin' and a-lovin's her trade.
          E                                            D                    C        A        E
Her mama was Mez'can and her daddy was the ace of spades.

Oh, let's drive that old Chrysler down to Mexico, boys.

                                                    D                  C           A
Mm, she's hot as a pepper but smooth as a Mexican brew.
         E                                  D             C          A
So head for the border and put in an order or two.
          E                                        D                     C          A      E
The wings of the blackbird will spread like an eagle for you.
