(Capo 3rd fred)
[C] [G] [C] [G] [D] [C] [G]  

He lay his [C]blanket undernea[G]th the free[C]way [G]
as the e[C]vening sky[G] grew dar[C]k
took a sniff of tonc[G]ho from his coke c[C]an[G]
and headed th[D]rough Balboa Pa[C]rk
where the men in M[G]ercede[C]s [G]
come ni[C]ghtly to em[G]ploy [C]
in the cool San D[G]iego even[C]ing [G]
D C | C G | C G | D | C G
the services of the border boys
He g[C]rew up near the z[G]ona nort[C]e
w[G]ith the hustlers and s[C]mugglers he h[G]ung out with[C]
he swallowed their bal[G]loons of c[C]ocaine[G]
brought 'em cr[D]oss the 12th street s[C]trip
sleeping in[G] a sh[C]elter[G]
[C]if the night g[G]ot too col[C]d
runnin' from[G] the mi[C]gra [G]
D C | C G | C G | D | C G
of the border patrol
Past the S[C]alvage yard '[G]cross the t[C]rain track[G]s
and in t[C]hrough the [G]storm drai[C]n
they stretched their blankets[G] out neath the [C]freewa[G]y
and e[D]ach one took a nam[C]e
there was [C]x-man and coc[G]hese
li[C]ttle spider his s[G]neakers covered in [C]river mud
they come n[C]orth to Califo[G]rnia
D C | C G | C G | D | C
end up with the poison in their blood
He did [Em7]what he had to do for m[G]oney
sometimes he sent home what h[D]e could spar[C]e
the r[Em7]est went to hi-top sneakers [C]and toncho
and j[G]eans like the gav[D]atchos wea[G]r
one n[C]ight the border pa[G]trol swept 12[C]th stre[G]et
a big c[C]ar come fast d[G]own the boulevar[C]d
spider stood caught in[G] it's headl[C]ight[G]s
got h[D]it and went down h[C]ard
as the c[C]ar sped away spide[G]r held his s[C]tomach[G]
limped to his b[C]lanket 'neath the[G] underpas[C]s
lie there tasting h[G]is own blood o[C]n his to[G]ngue
closed his e[D]yes and listened to the cars
C G | C | G
rushin by so fast
[C] [G] [D] [Em7]
