The Mexican

by Babe Ruth
Chico Fernandez
Sleeping on his (Livin' on a) gun
Dreams of Santa Anna
Fighting in the sun
Drums so loud from outside
Makes it hard to dream
A rain is fallin' hard and fast
Makes it all seem real
Mornin' come mornin
A Chico's gotta have his share
Mornin', sad mornin'
Said he must be there
Mornin', sad mornin'
What a laugh, and I cried
And I cry, cry, cry, cry, cried
Mornin', sad mornin'
Mexican
Siorita pining
Chico come on home
Santa Anna's losing
You'll be first to go
Sam Houston's laughing
Davy Crockett too
When Anna takes the Alamo
The first to go is you
Mornin', come mornin'
A Chico's gotta have his share
Mornin', sad mornin'
Heaven will be there
Mornin', sad mornin'
What a laugh and out loud
Ha ha ha ha ha

Back to a verse (same as above)


Yeah, we all know the guitar/keyboard solo is great, but it's nothing without
the bass
You must be able to pull the A string open to create that quadruple note
sound, just keep
once you have it down, it sounds fantastic! Here it is:
G

A
E

--------------------------------------------|

--7---7----7777----0507----7----7777--050---|

Then, 8 times
G

------------------------------|

Followed by:

Verse 2 (guitar 1 plays the same thing)


(guitar 2 plays the chords on Wah-Wah)
Seniorita's panned in :"Chico, come-on home!"

Santa-Anna's losing, you'll be first to go


Sam Whosman's laughin', Davy Crocket too
When Anna takes the Alamo the first to go is you,
Chorus 2 (same as chorus 1)
Mornin' calm mornin'
Ah Chico's gonna have his share
Mornin' sad mornin'
Heaven will be THERE-AHHHHHHHHHHH
Mornin' sad mornin'
What a laugh and a laugh AH AH AH AH AH AH AH!
Play Riff A 4 times (don't forget to add the vibrato on the F# half the times)
Play Riff B once
Then play only the end of it (below) 3 times.
