G  C  Am  Cm  D D7  G  C  D
         G
I spun a bottle on a map to tell us which way to go,
       C                       Am
now I'm hell-bound south in that Hermosillo.
        Cm                           D         D7
Got the ashes of my best friend in a cremation jar,
      G                         C  D
on the shotgun seat of the car.
        G
Got the top chopped off, got the windows down.
C                         Am
One last tour through our happy happy hunting grounds.
          Cm
Though we never made a kill,
         D            D7           G             C  D
that was never really what we came down here for.

   Am
So give me a sign amigo, can you tell me,
        Bm
did you go down laughing when you finally fell.
       D
We had tales to tell we had songs to sing.
Did you get your horns or did they give you wings,
well either works just as well.

           G
Well its a hundred and one under this fanatical sun.
    C                             Am
The black-eyed federales dripping sweat on their machine guns sayin'
 Cm                D                   D7            G               C  D
"drive on slow gringo, you ain't as important as you think you are."
        G
I got a box of firecrackers and liquor to go,
C                    Am
Vamanos amigo, para Bahia Kino
     Cm                           D            D7
Well everything is here, from the pesos to the beer,
         G                    C  D
still no sign of your ghost.

   Am
So give me a sign amigo, can you tell me,
        Bm
did you go down laughing when you finally fell.
       D
We had tales to tell we had songs to sing.
Did you get your horns or did they give you wings,
well either works just as well.

Am  G

    Em
The desert's lovely, dark, and deep.
    G
And I got no more promises left to keep.
    D
But why tell me why, I got to drain the bottle dry,
C   G    D
  Before I can cry, before I can cry over you

G  C  Am  Cm  D D7  G  C  D

             G
Well there's bones on the beach, and there's ashes in the jar,
  C                            Am
a ghost in the air laughing at fools at the bar.
    Cm                    D           D7         G           C  D
And inside there's a river that don't run to the sea no more.
G
Life is cheap here, and death is rich.
     C                     Am
They finally got you lucky son of a bitch.
   Cm                      D       D7           G
If I could do it again I'd cry out loud at your hospital bed.

   Am
So give me a sign amigo, can you tell me,
        Bm
did you hit the ground laughing when you finally fell.
       D                                  C  G  D
We had tales to tell we had songs to sing.
                                                  C  G  D
Did you get your horns or did they give you wings,
well either works just as well.
