Jaquima To Freno  Ian Tyson

[A]Jaquima to freno
He's an old vaquero

>From another time

Hands as fine as the
Dealers of Reno   [D]

He's been to the ocean

He's been to the sea
[A]Big long tapaderos hangin' both sides

Of an old Visalia tree

Chorus 1:
[E]Hey Mr. Vaquero [A]   [E]
Put a handle on my pony [D]for me
Teach me the myster[C#]y

Verse 2:

[A]Jaquima to freno

He's an old Amansador

Still hangin' on

Just about gone

Like the California Condor
[D]He been down to the rodear ground

Seen him on the movie screen
Ah but som[A]etimes I think he's like America

Only see him in your dreams

(repeat chorus 1)

Chorus 2:
[C#]Did they s[E]ing all day
Did they [C#]dance all night
Did they [E]ride their spade bit ponies
Through the golden [C#]light
Did they [E]find true love
Was it all a bunch of [C#]lies
[E]Quien sabe, maybe it was para[A]dise

(repeat first verse, choruses 1 and 2 in that order)
