Senorita / Don Williams

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Listen to the originals to get into the rythm for the strumming pattern.

Hint:After the first D, strike G once and immediately switch to A. Chord A is strum down twice and the D is strum first (feebly ..touchin only the 1st string) upwards and then prominantly downwards.

During any 'dialogue' part in the song D G A D are played in the background with the strumming pattern hinted above.

D G A D
Back in the innocent days, there was a young cowboy,

G A D
in love with a Mexican girl.

G A D
Only...she didn't know it.

G A D
And he would watch her, as she walked by.

G A D
And her cotton dress, would dance in the wind.

G A D

And her eyes held the stars.

G A D
Now she was the most beautiful thing, that cowboy had ever seen.

G A D

Sent down straight from heaven.

G A D

But he was afraid, he'd never win her heart.

G A D

Because of some family scars, left by the range wars.

G A D

But oh...how he loved her.

Chorus:

D G A
Senorita..
D
Passing by...

G A D (//start the next line ..Pardon me.. with this D)
G A D
Pardon me if I stop and asked you why. G A D

D G A
Senorita...
G A D
Could it be...
G A D
Someone like you could love

G A D
Someone like me

G A D

So he walked up to her, tipped his hat and introduced himself.

G A D
And she looked up at him, and didn't know what to say.
G A D
So he told her the story of his family.

G A D

The trouble that brought the barbed wire.

G A D
And of all the things he couldn't change.

G A D

And then he told her that he loved her.
And he studied her reaction.

G A D

And by the time the spring rains came, they were married.

G A D

Now there's an ol' song that my family used to sing.
'bout a young cowboy and a Mexican girl. G A D
And how they fell in love. (fade G A D ..)
