Down in Mexicali,

There's a crazy little place that I know.
          Em(aah)                     Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
Where the drinks are hotter than the chilli sauce,

And the boss is a cat named Joe.

     Am                  Em
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

Well, the first time that I saw him,
       Em(aah)                  Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
He was sittin' on a piano stool.
        Em(aah)                    Em(ba-shoowa-shoowa)
I said "Tell me dad, when does the fun begin?"
        B7                       B7
He just winked his eye and said "Man, be cool."

In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.

In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico.
