"Mexican Home"
(feat. John Prine)
Intro
G - C - G - D - G (x2)
G
It got so hot, last night, I swear
C                                
You couldn't hardly breathe
G                        D            G
Heat lightning burnt the sky like alcohol
G                   
I sat on the porch without my shoes
      C
And I watched the cars roll by
       G
As the headlights raced
       D                     G
To the corner of the kitchen wall

Chorus
D
Mother dear
Your boy is here
G
Far across the sea
A
Waiting for
That sacred core
     D
That burns inside of me
       G
And I feel a storm
All wet and warm
    C
Not ten miles away
 G
Approaching
   D       G
My Mexican home
G - C - G - D - G

G
My God! I cried, it's so hot inside
          C
You could die in the living room
         G
Take the fan from the window
         D                G
Prop the door back with a broom
    G
The cuckoo clock has died of shock
        C
And the windows feel no pane
     G
The air's as still
       D                     G
As the throttle on a funeral train

Chorus
D
Mother dear
Your boy is here
G
Far across the sea
A
Waiting for
That sacred core
     D
That burns inside of me
      G
And I feel a storm
All wet and warm
    C
Not ten miles away
 G
Approaching
   D       G
My Mexican home
G - C - G - D - G (x2)

G
My father died on the porch outside
      C
On an August afternoon
         G
I sipped bourbon and cried
       D                          G
With a friend by the light of the moon
G
So its hurry! Hurry! Step right up
       C
It's a matter of life or death
    G
The sun is going down
        D                        G
And the moon is just holding its breath

Chorus
D
Mother dear
Your boy is here
G
Far across the sea
A
Waiting for
That sacred core
     D
That burns inside of me
      G
And I feel a storm
All wet and warm
    C
Not ten miles away
 G
Approaching
   D       G
My Mexican home
G
Approaching
   D       G
My Mexican home
G - C - G - D - G (x2)
