Vaquero by Aaron Watson Guitar Chords

[Verse 1]
D DM9/Db Bm7
This old Mexican cowboy at the bar
A D DM9/Db Bm7
Looked a hundred years old
D
He had a million dollar smile
DM9/Db Bm7 A D DM9/Db Bm7 A
And his withered brown skin shimmered like California gold
Em A
He said, “I’m a little short on cash, but I’m long on life”
Em A
“For a shot of tequila, I’ll give you some dang good advice”

[Chorus 1]
G A D
He said, “Don’t leave your beer in the hot Texas sun”
G A Bm
“Don’t argue with a woman while she’s holding a gun”
G A D G
“Never cheat when it comes to love or dominoes”
Em A D G D G
“Vaya con dios” said the old vaquero

[Verse 2]
D
Well my heart sank
DM9/Db Bm7 A D DM9/Db Bm7
The more he drank, the more he poured out his misery
D DM9/Db
How he lost her after forty seven years
Bm7 A D DM9/Db Bm7 A
And his tears started flowing like the Rio Grand-e
Em A
He started speaking in Spanish then he kissed his rosary
Em A
Said “Por siempre mi amor”, his one more to her memory

[Chorus 2]
G A D
He said, “Don’t live you life like a sad country song”
G A Bm
“A fool on a stool is still a stool, right or wrong”
G A D G
“Pride is a bandito breaking hearts as he goes”
Em A D
“Vaya con dios” said the old vaquero

[Verse 3]
Bm Gbm
I walked over to the corner, turned the old jukebox on
G Gm
When I turned back around like a ghost he was gone
D DM9/Db Bm7 A
So I paid his tab, called a cab, called it a night
D DM9/Db Bm7 A
And came straight home to you
D DM9/Db Bm7
As we laid there in bed I told you all the things he said
A D DM9/Db Bm7 A
We laughed, we cried, and I held you the whole night through
Em A
You know I think of him often, out there all alone
Em A
Maybe he was an angel, or just an old man from San Anton

[Chorus 1]
G A D
He said, “Don’t leave your beer in the hot Texas sun”
G A Bm
“Don’t argue with a woman while she’s holding a gun”
G A D G
“Never cheat when it comes to love or dominoes”
Em A
“Vaya con dios”

[Chorus 2]
G A D
He said, “Don’t live you life like a sad country song”
G A Bm
“A fool on a stool is still a stool, right or wrong”
G A D G
“Pride is a bandito breaking hearts as he goes”
Em A
“Vaya con dios”
Em A
He said, “Vaya con dios”

[Outro]
D DM9/Db Bm7
This old Mexican cowboy at the bar
A D DM9/Db Bm7 A
Looked a hundred years old
D DM9/Db
He had a million dollar smile
Bm7 A D
And his withered brown skin shimmered like California gold
