Subject: CRD: "The Road To Ensenada" by Lyle Lovett

This one was actually a bit tough to work out, since the guitar part
includes a lot of partial chords that could be interpreted in different
ways.  This arrangement sounds quite nice, though.  I'd advise picking
rather than strumming, to get the spare sound of the recording -- try
experimenting with different picking patterns until you find one you like.

As [D] I lay [G] sick and [A] bro[D]ken
[D] Viva [A] Mexi[D]co
My [D] eyes just [G] won't stay [A] o[D]pen
And I [Bm] dream a [A] dream of [D] home
I [D] dream a [G] dream of [A] home

Where there's [D] coffee [G] on the [A] ta[D]ble
And [D] kindness [A] in your [D] hand
[D] Honey I'll [G] help you [A] when I'm [D] able
But right [Bm] now I'm [A] feeling [D] bad
Right [D] now I'm [G] feeling [A] bad
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lyle_lovett/the_road_to_ensenada_crd.html ]
  [D] Listen [G] to your [A] heart that [D] beats
  And [D] follow [G] it with [A] both your [D] feet
  And [D] as you [G] walk and [A] as you [D] breathe
  You [Bm] ain't no [A] friend to [D] me
  You [D] ain't no [G] friend to [A] me

The [D] road to [G] Ensen[A]ada [D]
[D] Is plenty [A] wide and [D] fast
If [D] you head [G] South from [A] Tijuana [D]
Then [Bm] I'll see [A] you at [D] last
[D] I'll see [G] you at [A] last

But my [D] eyes they [G] open [A] slow[D]ly
And they [D] look a[A]round the [D] room
The [D] old [G] man he [A] seems [D] worried
And there [Bm] ain't no [A] sign of [D] you
There [D] ain't no [G] sign of [A] you

  Chorus

You can [D] offer [G] to the [A] right[D]eous
The [D] good that [A] you have [D] won
But down [D] here a[G]mong the un[A]clean [D]
Your [Bm] good just [A] comes un[D]done
Your [D] good just [G] comes un[A]done

  Solo on Verse

The [D] sisters [G] at the [A] border[D]line
They're [D] holding [A] out their [D] hands
They're [D] begging [G] me for [A] something [D] Lord
But [Bm] I don't [A] under[D]stand
[D] I don't [G] under[A]stand

So it's [D] adi[G]os to [A] Alver[D]o
Tell him to [D] stay be[A]tween the [D] lines
And if he [D] sees that [G] Gabri[A]ella [D] girl
Tell her [Bm] I'll look her [A] up next [D] time
Say I'll [D] look her [G] up next [A] time

Because the [D] road to [G] Ensen[A]ada [D]
[D] Is plenty [A] wide and [D] fast
[D] And this [G] time through [A] Tiju[D]ana
Well [Bm] it won't [A] be my [D] last
[D] It won't [G] be my [A] last

  Chorus

You [G] ain't no [A] friend to [D] me
