Intro:    C      Am       F       C

C        Am                 F
All alone in a Mexican joint
            C
In Mesa, Arizona
                     Am
With a mariachi band
               F
On the jukebox
               C
And an empty Corona
                     Am
And the sun gone down
                     F
In the pale thin pink
                         Dm
There’s no one to talk to

All I can think
        C 
Is your eyes are full of train smoke
         Am
And your mouth tastes like rain
      F
And I know when I know nothing
       Dm
I will always know your name
          C            C/B 
You’re my one and only one
               F        C
You’re my only one 

Out here working
In the neon lights
Where the temperature is falling
It’s hotel coffee
Red-eye flights and Honey
I’m your midnight ringer calling
And the snow comes down
And I tell everybody something
But it’s usually good-bye
But not you you’re my one
You’re my only one 

     C
Only one I want to talk to
     Am
Only one I know to call
     F
Only one who’s going to catch me
        Dm 
When my pride leads to a fall
           Bb
You’re the sky all full of starlings
       F                       C
And an ax blade shining in the sun
           Bb
You’re the angel touched a coal
           F
Against my lips
               C
You’re my only one 

Reel to reel
The country rolls
And the towns slide by
Like ghost repeaters
Of faded billboards & big-box stores
Like a movie of an empty theater
You look around and wonder
When the seams are going to fail
And how dear the cost of living
Where everything’s for sale
Except you you’re my one
You’re my only one 

And I’m all alone
In a Mexican joint
In Mesa, Arizona
