Ballad Of Lupe Montosa Chords

   
Ballad of Lupe Montosa
Peacemakers
from David Cushman, http://gladstone.uoregon.edu/~dcushman/guitar.html


Lyrics from "Semifamous," http://www.semifamous.com

Intro:
G G C C  G

           G                     C
Well, they shot poor old Lupe Montosa
                G                           D
They gunned him down about the bootlegger's spring
               G            B7(x24242)
They stole his only silver ring
             C7(x35353)         A7(575655)
They wrecked all his distilling things
           G            D                 G
And made a widow of his sweet little wife Rosa

              G                 C
They found an old curandero, to bury the mescalero 
          G                           D
While his family cried for thirteen nights and days...
        G                   Bm      Em          D      C
When Lupito asked his momma why his papa had to go and die,
         Em     Am                Em      G
She said, "Dios works in the most loco of ways"

Interlude: G G C G

        G                               C
So, the Padre tried to settle down, the angry mob that gathered round
        G                                   D              D7
He said, "Let no more tears flow, let's let no more blood spill. 
         G             Bm                  Em          D      C
People don't you take revenge, in time the lord will surely avenge this crime
    G             D        C            G
For Lupe, and the untimely death of our still."

           G                     C
Well, they shot poor old Lupe Montosa
                G                           D
They gunned him down about the bootlegger's spring
               G            B7
They stole his only silver ring
             C7                 A7
They wrecked all his distilling things
           G            D                 G
And made a widow of his sweet little wife Rosa

                    G                          C
When they found the man who shot down poor old Lupe,
               G                        D
You know their lives were just barely a-flicker...
           G              B7
See they'd all lost their minds,
            C7             A7
Each one was permanently blind, 
      G                        D           G
With drinking too much of poor Lupe's good liquor

           G                     C
Yeah, they shot down poor Lupe Montosa
                G                           D
They gunned him down about the bootlegger's spring
               G            B7
They stole his only silver ring
             C7                 A7
They wrecked all his distilling things
           G            D                 G
And made a widow of his sweet little wife Rosa
