Jaquima To Freno  Ian Tyson

Jaquima To Freno (Ian Tyson, B. McIntyre)
[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)
