Hoyt Axton

Hoyt Axton - Viva Pancho Villa

In an old cantina down in Mexico

A bunch of dreamers drinking and thinking out loud

Panama Red told the Queen of Brazil

Ooh I love you I've loved you since I was a sailor

We'll go down to Rio we'll rob us a bank

And sail off to Paris in splendor hey we'll be some mighty big spenders

Abandoned and alone they were easily prone to get into trouble for money

In honky tonk dreams they rehearse their scenes

And rewrite them all in their favor rewrite them all in their favor

[ ac.guitar ]

Minnie the Mo said to Hokomo Joe ooh I'm bored and I'm broke

And I've run out of whiskey and honey

But Red knows a bank down in Rio that's ripe

Where we can fill our pockets with money

Hey we'll be some mighty big spenders

Abandoned and alone...

[ guitar ]

Madame Kazoo said to St Louis Lou

Ooh tell Panama Red I think that's the last train to Rio

The Topeka kid had a hole in his lid

They say that he once rode with Pancho

When Pancho was a mighty big spender

Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa

Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa

Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa

Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa

[ mandolin ]

Wouldn't you know they never did go

Ooh they kept on drinkin' and they never even left the cantina

And El Presidente de la Banque Brazil he never even lost him a penny

Hey he's still a mighty big spender the President's a mighty big spender

Abandoned and alone...

Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa Viva Villa Viva Pancho Villa...
