[Verse 1]
C
I was saddle sore and weary riding silent throught the night
                            G
runnign for my life in the sleepy rio grand
 
headed for the boarder with a posses on my tail
                                   C
with a bullet in my shoulder and a pistal in my hand
                        Am        Em
i robbed the band in hebbronville when things went wrong
             C                     F
i had to kill a man standing in my way
G
jumped on a horse road out of town with bullets raining all around
                         C
they got my atleast i got away
 
[Chorus]
F                G             C           Am
and mexico lays waiting like a lady of the night
G                    C
run like the devil or therell be hell to pay
F        G              C      Am
parodic lays just beyond the river
 G                         C
and comforts only 20 miles away
 
 
[Interlude]
G C
 
[Verse 2]
  C
dont know why i did it but i did it just the same
                                           G
it may have been a mountian i just had to clime
 
it wasnt for the money but it may have been for fame
                                     C
away to plant my foot prints in the sands for time
                          Am                Em              C
but the blood is socking down my shirt im cold and tired my sholder hurts
                    F
dont know how much farther i can go
       G
and to hell with the sands for time i just want to plant these feet of my
                          C
in the sun baked sands of mexico
 
[Chorus]
 F                             C            Am
and mexico lays waiting like a lady of the night
 G                              C
run like the devil or therell be hell to pay
 F                 G          C   Am
parodic lays just beyond the river
 G                           C
comforts just a fifle shot away
 
[Interlude]
G C
 
[Verse 3]
  C
a top the hill and theres the river and the dim lights of Laredo
                                    G
and i can hear my heart beat comforsts just a mile away
 
or is that huff beats in the distance
 
gotta keep on going cant take the time to
                 C
cetch my breath cant even stop to pry
                         Am              Em              C
but my horse has run all he can run the posses gaining here they come
                              F
help me reach the land of the free
G
but i see a flash of lighting and i hear a clap of thunder as the rocky
                        C
earth comes spinning up tords me
 
[Interlude]
G  C
 
[Chorus]
 F                             C           Am
and mexico lays waiting like a lady of the night
G                               C
run like the devil or therell be hell to pay
F                  G          C    Am
parodic lays just beyong the river
G                         C
and comforts just 6 feet away
