@SONG: Tampico Trauma
** At the places notated "5th, 4th, 3rd" stand for an "A" chord
** fingering on that particular fret. Specifically, 5th - |xo555o|
** 4th - |xo444o| 3rd - |xo333o| A - |xo222o|
Intro: (run of) 5th 4th 3rd A (repeat)
5th 4th 3rd A
I must look a mess I must admit
5th 4th 3rd A
But I have been travelling quite a bit
[D] South of the Border
[A] Where the law and order
Is [D]kept by Federales who just [E]grin
5th 4th 3rd A
And tell you they just want to be your friend
(repeat run)
I left for Tampico last July
I jumped off that boat I almost died
[D] There to greet us
[A] Were pretty senoritas
I [D]swore that I would not go home t[E]hen
(repeat run)
All those lovely ladies were my friends
All those sweet chiquitas they don't pretend
(repeat run)
That is all I really want to say
I was thrown out of the country yesterday
(See I was)[D] drinkin' double
[A] Causin' lots of trouble
When the [D]man looked in the window of the bar and he [E]grinned
5th 4th 3rd A
And said, "If you come back we just may not be your friend"
(repeat run)
"I don't want to see you 'round here again"
"If you come back next time we may not..." (Hidy ho' boys!)
