Hollies - Mexico Gold


CAPO: 2nd Fret




INTRO: D   C-G   C-D  (3x)

                                        D
Thought I'd take a trip down to the old world
         G                                              D
'Cause I heard a lot of things about the North American girls
                    Em
I was looking for a lady
                   D      C-G   C-D   C-G
Someone to have my baby


                                 D
So I got me on a 747 Pan America plane
  G                                     D
I sat me down next to your all American dame
                                              Em
Said, "I'm going up North", she said, "It's a pity"
                                                   D      
Then she told me all about the gold down in Mexico City


CHORUS:
             G     
Ah, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flying
                                                     D
Every morning and every night to get you out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
             G     
Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
                                                               D
When you're living down south and it's going right out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)


G                                                         D
Got off the plane, went to the customs and they gave me a list
       G                                        D
Do you carry a gun, take drugs, or are you Communist?
                            Em
They said my papers were in order
                                                          D      
I wasn't staying long, no sir, I'm going South across the border


CHORUS:
             G     
Ah, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flying
                                                     D
Every morning and every night to get you out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
             G     
Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
                                                               D
When you're living down south and it's going right out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)


INSTRUMENTAL: G     C-D   C-G     C-D   C-G   C-D   C-G


                                              D
Took the first South bound across the Rio and down
G                                      D
Found a little place in a small Mexico town
               Em
Just me and my lady
                    D      
Now she's having my baby


CHORUS:
             G     
Ah, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flying
                                                     D
Every morning and every night to get you out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
             G     
Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
                                                               D
When you're living down south and it's going right out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)


CHORUS:    (## fade to end ##)
             G     
Ah, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flying
                                                     D
Every morning and every night to get you out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
             G     
Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
                                                               D
When you're living down south and it's going right out of your head
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
(Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy)
