Verse 
         D                   A/C#      G/B        D/A 
Well the smoke cuts the lights in this honky-tonk bar 
        D/F#                      G 
And I?m thinking where I?d rather be  
                  D/F#          A       D 
Maybe chasing señoritas down in Old Mexico  
   E7                          A7 
Or standing at the edge of the sea 
   D         A/C#  G/B        D/A 
If I had the money I tell you honey 
     D/F#                      G 
We?d be on that first plane to Spain 
                     Em       D/F#      Bm 
But as long as we?re here the answer is clear 
      A                       D 
We?ll dance in the New Mexico rain
