G                                          C
In old Mexico I stand on the square in Matamoros

      D7                                            G
Round the plaza the couples are walking to music so sweet

I found my love not too long ago in Matamoros

    D7                                            G
But I'm feeling low as the beggar who sits in the street

Oh the promises that she made with eyes black as midnight

A7                                            D7
How could I know how fickle her promise could be

    G                                          C
Now I'm back to find what I feel is mine in Matamoros

    D7                                                 G
And there'll be bad trouble if I catch her cheating on me

Streets are narrow and dark and Tequila runs free in Matamoros

       D7                                          G
I stop for one moment outside of Miguel's swinging door

My heart breaks to hear the same haunting sound of Granada

    D7                                              G
She once called it our song and vowed she'd be mine evermore

Then across the square with this wild young Vaquero I see her

A7                                               D7
Laughing and dancing and tossing her raven black hair

     G                                             C
Fate may take a hand when I face this man from Matamoros

        D7                                            G
For the love of my woman is one thing that I'll never share

Now I walk in the night far away from the lights of Matamoros

      D7                                                       G
And recall the last moments when I knew she loved me more than life

I can still hear her cry I love you and I'll prove it Manana

     D7                                          G
Then seeing my danger she jumped in front of his knife

I know of the stories they'll tell in the dim lit casinos

A7                                                          D7
Of the raven haired beauty who for her love lay dead on the floor

        G                                                     C
They'll speak of the fight with the gringo that night in Matoamoros

    D7                                            G
And wonder what happened for he never returned anymore
