Seashores Of Old Mexico
by Merle Haggard              [3/4 time]
 
C                                           G7
I left out of Tucson with no destination in mind
      Dm           G7              Dm            G7           C     G7
I was running from trouble and the jail-term the Judge had in mind
    C    
And the border meant freedom a new life romance
                 C7               F  C  G7
And that's why I thought I should go
     Dm           G7          Dm        G7     C      G7
And start my life over on the seashores of old Mexico
 
   C                                          G7
My first night in Juarez lost all the money I had
    Dm      G7        Dm         G7       C   G7
One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad
    C            
But I must keep on running it's too late to turn back
           C7            F    C  G7
I'm wanted in Tucson I'm told
         Dm             G7          Dm        G7     C      G7
Yeah and things'll blow over on the seashores of old Mexico
 
    C                                          G7
Two Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't say
       Dm          G7        Dm           G7          C   G7
Let me ride on the back of a flatbed half-loaded with hay
     C
Down through Durango Palima Palmira
     C7          F   C G7
Then in the Manzanio
        Dm           G7              Dm        G7     C       G7
Where I slept in the sunshine on the seashores of old Mexico
 
     C                                         G7
After one long siesta I came wide awake in the night
      Dm          G7          Dm           G7       C    G7
I was startled by someone who shadowed the pale moonlight
   C     
My new-found companion one young senorita
              C7     F     C  G7
Who offered a broken hello
       Dm         G7           Dm        G7     C      G7
To the gringo she found on the seashores of old Mexico
 
    C                                          G7
She spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never return
        Dm      G7          Dm         G7       C      G7
For her Mexican husband she really had no great concern
      C        
Cause she loved the gringo my red hair and lingo
           C7          F    C  G7
That's all I needed to know
     
     Dm             G7            Dm        G7     C      G7
Yeah I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico
     C
Yeah she loved the gringo my red hair and lingo
             C7        F       C  G7
That's all I needed to know ha ha
     Dm             G7            Dm        G7     C
Yeah I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Merle Haggard lyrics

This is really a nice song, although the chords are very intimidating to most of us amateurs, this is a simplified version. Of course it would sound better using those orchestra chords, but I can't make them, so I have to improvise. Copy Seashores Of Old Mexico lyrics and chords and try them, maybe you can add a lick here and there to make it sound better.
