I l[D]eft, out of T[D/C#]ucson, with [D/B]no destin[A]ation in m[Em]ind.[A] [Em] [A]
I was r[Em]unnin' from tr[A]ouble and the j[Em]ail-term the J[A]udge had in m[D]in[D/C#]d.[D/B] [A]
And the b[Am7]order meant fre[D]edom, a ne[Am7]w life, rom[D]ance,
And t[Am7]hat's why I thou[D]ght I should [G]go,[D/F#] [Em] [D]
And s[Em]tart my life o[A]ver on the se[Em]ashores of[A] old Mexic[D]o.[D/C#] [D/B] [A]
My f[D]irst night in[D/C#] Juarez, l[D/B]ost all the m[A]oney I h[Em]ad.[A] [Em] [A]
One b[Em]ad senor[A]ita made u[Em]se of one in[A]nocent l[D]ad.[D/C#] [D/B] [A]
But I [Am7]must keep on r[D]unnin'; it's t[Am7]oo late to t[D]urn back:
I'm wa[Am7]nted in T[D]ucson, I'm to[G]ld.[D/F#] [Em] [D]
Yeah, an' [Em]things'll blow o[A]ver on the s[Em]eashores of [A]old Mexi[D]co.[D/C#] [D/B] [A]
Two M[D]exican f[D/C#]armers en r[D/B]oute to a t[A]own I can't s[Em]ay,[A] [Em] [A]
Let me r[Em]ide on the b[A]ack of a fl[Em]atbed half-l[A]oaded with h[D]ay.[D/C#] [D/B] [A]
Do[Am7]wn through Du[D]rango,Pa[Am7]lima,Pal[D]mira,
Th[Am7]en in the M[D]anzani[G]o,[D/F#] [Em] [D]

After [Eb]one long [Bb/D]siesta, I c[Cm]ame wide aw[Bb]ake in the ni[Fm]ght.[Bb] [Fm] [Bb]
I was s[Fm]tartled by s[Bb]omeone who sha[Fm]dowed the p[Bb]ale moonli[Eb]ght.[Bb/D] [Cm] [Bb]
My n[Bbm]ew-found com[Eb]panion, one y[Bbm]oung senori[Eb]ta,
Who [Bbm]offered a b[Eb]roken hello[Ab],[Eb/G] [Fm] [Bb]

For her [F#m]Mexican h[B]usband, she r[F#m]eally had n[B]o great con[E]cer[E/Eb]n.[E/Db] [B]
'Cause [Bm7]she loved the g[E]ringo, my re[Bm7]d hair and l[E]ingo:
That's [Bm7]all I nee[E]ded to kn[A]ow.[E/Ab] [F#m] [E]
