Bm          A          G
Panama Red, Panama Red, he'll steal your woman,
E7                  A            Bm          A
Then he'll rob your head. Panama Red, Panama Red.
On his white horse, Mescalito,
He come breezin' through town.
     A                                       D
I'll bet your woman's up in bed with, Panama Red.
The judge don't know when Red's in town,
He keeps will hidden underground.
         A                           D
But everybody's acting lazy, falling out and hangin' 'round.
My woman said, "Hey Pedro, you're actin’ crazy like a clown"
  A                                              D
Nobody feels like working, Panama Red is back in town.
Jam on verse and chorus chords
Everybody's looking out for him,
'Cause they know Red's satisfies.
Little girls love to listen, to him sing and tell sweet lies.
But when things get too confusing, honey, you're better off in bed
And I’ll be searching all the joints in town for Panama Red.




G                                       F
As you read this letter that I write to you
     C                        G
Sweetheart I hope you’ll understand
     C                      G
That you’re the only love I knew
       D7             G
Please forgive if you can

Sweetheart I beg you to come home tonight
    C               G
I'm so blue and all alone
  C                           G
I promise that I'll treat you right
        D7                  G
Love oh love oh please come home

The wind is cold and slowly creeping around
C                       G
And the fire is burning low
    C                       G
The snow has covered up the ground
            D7              G
Your baby's hungry sick and cold

Repeat #2 x2
