                [Verse 1]
A                              Am
Down to the Banana Republics, down to the tropical sun,
       D                      G
go the expatriated Americans, hopin' to find some fun.
G                                Am
Some of them go for the sailing, caught by the lure of the sea.
D                              G
Tryin' to find what is ailing, livin' in the land of the free.
G                                     Am
Some of them are running from lovers, leaving no forward address.
D
Some of them are running tons of ganja,
         G 
some are running from the I.R.S.


[Chorus 1]
Dm
Late at night you will find them,
       Am
in the cheap hotels and bars,
C                 G     C          G       D         G
hustling the senioritas while they dance beneath the stars.
Dm                                 Eb                  D
Spending those renegade pesos on a bottle of rum and a lime,
C                                G
singin' give me some words I can dance to,
C    G   D7      G
or a melody that rhymes.


[Verse 2]
A
First you learn the native customs,
Am
soon a word of spanish or two.
D
You know that you cannot trust them,
G
'cause they know they can't trust you.
G                      Am
Expatriated Americans, feelin' so all alone,
D
telling themselves the same lies
          G
that they told themselves back home.


[Solo] 
G Am D G Dm Am C G C G


[Verse 3]
A                             Am
Down to the Banana Republics, things aren't as warm as they seem,
D                                  G
none of the natives are buying any second-hand American dreams.


[Chorus 2]
Dm
Late at night you will find them,
       Am
in the cheap hotels and bars,
C                 G     C          G       D         G
hustling the senioritas while they dance beneath the stars.
Dm                                 Eb                  D
Spending those renegade pesos on a bottle of rum and a lime,
C                                G
singin' give me some words I can dance to,
C    G   D7      G
or a melody that rhymes.


[Verse 4]
A                             Am
Down to the Banana Republics, down to the tropical sun;
       D                     G
go the expatriated Americans hopin' to find some fun.


[Outro]
