this is a great song, made popular again by the genius that is 
Peter Kay. Other versions iv seen are in the wrong key.

  Eb5 (hold)

 Ab                Db   Ab          Eb5  
When the day is dawning on a Texas Sunday morning
 Ab           Db
how I long to be there
 Ab              Eb5
with Marie who's waiting for me there
 E            B    E              B
every lonely city where I hang my hat
 E                B          Eb5   
ain't as half as pretty as where my baby's at

Chorus:
 Ab                  Db
Is this the way to Amarillo
 Ab                    Eb5
every night I've been hugging my pillow
 Ab                  Db
dreaming dreams of Amarillo
Ab        Eb5        Ab
and sweet Marie who waits for me
 Ab                 Db
show me the way to Amarillo
 Ab                Eb5
I've been weeping like a willow
 Ab           Db
crying over Amarillo
 Ab       Eb5        Ab   
and sweet Marie who waits for me

This pattern continues through the rest of the song, 
the words are as follows

Sha la la lala lalala Sha la la lala lalala 
Sha la la lala lalala and Marie who waits for me

There's a church bell ringing
hear the song of joy that it's singing
for the sweet Mariaand the guy who's coming to see her
just beyong the highway, there's an open plain
and it keeps me going through the wind and rain

Is this the way to Amarillo
every night I've been hugging my pillow
dreaming dreams of Amarilloand sweet Marie who waits for me
show me the way to Amarillo
I've been weeping like a willow
crying over Amarillo
and sweet Marie who waits for me

Sha la la lala lalala Sha la la lala lalala 
Sha la la lala lalala and Marie who waits for me 

Cheers
