(G) Me and old Bill there we both come from Georgia
Met Hank down in (D) New Mexico (G)
We're (G) bound for Durango to join Pancho Villa
We hear that he's (D) paying in (G) gold

I guess a man's got to do what he's best at
Ain't found nothing better so far
Been called mercenaries and men with no country
Just soldiers in search of a war


We're (C) bound for the border
We're (G) soldiers of fortune
We'll (D) fight for no country
But we'll (G) die for good pay
(C) Under the flag of the (G) greenback dollar
Or the peso down (D) Mexico (G) way

When this way is over, I might go back to Georgia
And settle down quiet somewhere
I'll most likely pack up and head south for Chile
Hear tell there's some trouble down there

Actually, this song is played using A, E for the verses, and D, A, E for the chorus. If anyone is interested in the intro/solo, post a request.

Man, I would love to learn the intro to this. If anyone knows it please post it. This is an awesome song by a very cool guy.
