Clear Isabel

Capo 4
Am							       F
Isabel let her brown skin shine like a sapphire in the summer sun
       C                                               G
The pride and joy of a Mexican lawman who lived by the gun
             Am                                           F
He got crossways with a cartel they shot down his only son Jose
          C                                                    G
So, in fear of his daughter's life he packed the bags late one night
    G 
She heard him say

                F                                        Am
I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
                G                                           Am
They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
            F                                                 Am
South Texas looks like heaven when your down here in this living hell
               G                                   F
So, come on let's cross that Rio the coast is clear Isabel
                  Am
The coast clear Isabel

    Am                                                          F
They came across our homestead tired and hungry cold and moving slow
              C                                                    G
We had fence to build, a warm place to stay, and they had nowhere to go
                Am                                                             F
So, I worked cattle with her father we were stretching wire and driving post all day
           C                                                       G
While Isabel worked with my mother and late at night I held her tight
              G
She'd take my breath away

                F                                        Am
I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
                G                                           Am
They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
            F                                                  Am
South Texas looks like heaven when your down here in this living hell
               G                                     F
So, come on let's cross that Rio the coast is clear Isabel
                  Am
The coast clear Isabel

Am          G          F           G
      Am                                                                  F
The sheriff came across the father they treated him like an outlaw on the run
                 C                                                  G
And Isabel now wears my diamond and that little boy she holds is my son
              Am                                                   F
We got a Green Card for her father Mariano but it came two years too late
          C                                                          G
We got word that he'd been gunned down in a border town shot in the back
      G
The last thing they heard him say


                F                                      Am
I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
                G                                         Am
They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
            F                                                 Am
South Texas looks like heaven when your down here in this living hell
               G                                    F
So, come on let's cross that Rio the coast is clear Isabel
                      Am
The coast clear Isabel
Am
Clear Isabel
Am
Clear Isabel
