I been (G) workin' on the boats in Galveston Bay

Well, I (G) left her standin' down in the ocean breeze
Promised (C) I would build a life for (D) her and me
But, (G) I can't get ahead no matter how I try
(C) Think it's time that I was tellin' (D) Texas goodbye
(Em) (C) Tellin' old (D) Texas good(G)bye

So (G) tonight I'm headin' down to the borderline
Takin' (C) what I can, leavin' the (D) rest behind
As (G) long as I've got her, there's one thing I know
I'll (C) be the richest man in (D) Mexico
(Em) (C) Richest man in (D) Mexic(G)o

I'm gonna (C) trade my dollars for (F) Mexican mo(C)ney

Gonna live forever with my (F) Mexican (C) honey
(F) She's there (C) waitin' for (D) me
