                  D               G      C         D
Verse 1 : For a change I headed south across the border
                    G          C         G       D
          For the pesos and a different horse to ride
                  D                G  C     D
          I'd be back to make the rodeo in Waco
                        G                                A
          But that was long before I saw them dark brown eyes

                  D                   G       C        D
Verse 2 : Oh her long black hair and English bad and broken
               G             C         G        D
          Her body said the words she couldn't find
                D             G        C       D
          As I hung on every word she left unspoken
                   G                             A
          Oh the question started leaning on my mind

              D  G     D            C               G           A
Refrain : Rodeo__o or Mexico, they both can keep a cowboy satisfied
              D  G     D            C         G             A
          Rodeo__o or Mexico, the only way I know how to decide
                            ( D )
          Is just get on and ride

              D                  G           C       D
Verse 3 : We danced all night beneath that sheet of cotton
                   G                 C         G        D
          And you just don't tell a girl like that goodbye
                   D                 G   C      D
          But the cowboy life ain't easiliy forgotten
                        G                               A
          Though lying there I couldn' help but wonder why

              D  G     D            C               G           A

              D  G     D            C         G             A
          Rodeo__o or Mexico, the only way I know how to decide
                            ( D )
          Is just get on and ride

Verse 4 : Well the morning found the answer dawning on me
                G               C       G      D
          As I woke up to the sharp end of a knife
                         D              G     C      D
          Well he was screaming at the woman hanging on me
                   G                              A
          Does anybody know the Spanish word for wife?

              D  G     D            C               G           A

          | D - - - | G - Bm - | A - - - | A - - - | -> Repeat and fade out

Comments : Play the D/G Chord at the end of the solo like a standard
D-Chord, but put the thumb of your hand on the third fret of the thick
E-String and play a G in the bass with it.
