Intro (8 counts):

G5


      G5
Gypsy woman

Come inside now
           D    C        G5
And take a load off your feet
           
You've been pounding the pavement
             D    C     G5
Ain't told a fortune in weeks

She spends her money on tequila
    D       C         G5
She says it keeps her warm

They call her many things but her name's Cecilia
              D          C
Now don't you know, now don't you know


G        C   D    G
Hey hey hey hey Cecilia
           C         D           G
Don't you know the streets will kill ya
           C         D       G
Don't you know your mama misses ya
           C      D
Don't you know don't you know

G5 (8 counts)


      G5
Gypsy woman

Say she don't need ya
                D         C            G5
And asks for a ride to the liquor store

She kills the bottle

Gives praise to Jesus
             D          C             G5
Then passes out on your living room floor

She tells the story of a shotgun wedding 
          D        C           G5
And the birth of a stillborn child
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/f/franky_perez/cecilia_crd.html ]
She was only 13 and her body wasn't ready
D (once)
Babies watching babies die
