A               D       A          E 
When the day is dawning on a Texas Sunday morning, 
A             D        A                E 
how I long to be there with Marie who's waiting for me there. 
F            C    F               C   
Every lonely city where I hang my hat 
F                C         bm              E 
ain't as half as pretty as where my baby's at.

Dreaming dreams of Amarillo and sweet Marie who waits for me. 
                   D         A                 E 
Show me the way to Amarillo. I've been weeping like a willow. 
A           D        A/E         E       A 
Crying over Amarillo and sweet Marie who waits for me.

A                     D        A                 E 
There's a church bell ringing. Hear the song of joy that it's singing 
A               D   A                 E 
for the sweet Maria and the guy who's coming to see her. 
F               C       F               C 
Just beyond the highway there's an open plain 
F               C     bm                   E 
and it keeps me going throught the wind and rain.
