G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C
G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C
G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C
G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C

           G            
Yeah I looked at my watch and it said a quarter to five
                      C                              F/C  C
The headlines screamed that I was still alive
  F/C                C
I couldn't understand it
  F                            G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C
I thought I died last night

Oh I dreamed I'd been in a border town
In a little cantina that the boys had found
I was desperate to dance
Just to dig the local sounds

Dm7                        G
When along came a señorita
Dm7                                 G/F
She looked so good that I had to meet her
         C/G                              D/A                   G/B         /A    /G    /F
I was ready to approach her with my English charm
                C       Bb          F/A Gm    F                  Bb     G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C
When her brass knuckled boyfriend grabbed me by the arm

G    G/A    G/Bb    G/B    F/C    C

                    A7                                        D

And he said grow some funk of your own amigo
A7
Grow some funk of your own
D                   Dsus4      D        Dsus4 D
We no like to with the gringo fight
                E7
But there might be a death in Mexico tonight
                   A7                                        D
If you can't grow some funk of your own amigo
A7
Grow some funk of your own
F#                      B
Take my advice, take the next flight
E7                                                         D
And grow your funk, grow your funk at home

Well I looked for support from the rest of my friends
For their vanishing trick they get ten out of ten
I knelt to pray
Just to see if he would comprehend
