>From Joe Ely's Dig All Night

Comments/Corrections encouraged

This song is primarily verses w/ 2 types of
chord patterns, labelled A and B.  The first
verse, however, is a little different


Verse 1
D
In a border town when the lights go down
        G              D
And the Ranchero Radio plays
         D                     D
You wont find me around in the lights of the town
        A                 G         D
I'll be out where the day meets the shade


Pattern A
       D                     G                  D
I only came for a holiday to sit in the Mexican wind
       D                         G                   D
I only came for the whiskey, but suddenly she walked in
           D                           D
She wore a dress made of lace, And the light on her face
  G
I felt the room start to shake
           D                       A                 D
It shook a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade...

Pattern A
I only came for the sun but I wound up with the moon and the stars
When her eyes met mine, the room filled with Spanish guitars
The kerosene in my blood Came on like a flood
As I stood to take her away
To a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade...

Pattern B
     G                                         D
On a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade
         G                                              A
With the skeletons dancing on the eve of the Day of the Dead
          D                                   D
I reached out in the dark, Put my hand on her heart,
          G
While the bows of the palm trees swayed
     D                       A                 D
On a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade

Pattern A
I woke up in a sweat, my legs feeling too weak to stand
There's a pain in my back and not a bit of grip in my hands
A flash of steel in the night Left me no time to write
An epitaph to leave on my grave
The church bells rang on a Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade

Pattern B
On a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade
With the skeletons dancing on the eve of the Day of the Dead
If you see Juan Tell him I can't come
I've got a previous engagement I've made.
I'm On a Black Spanish Love Seat Behind the Bamboo Shade...
