The Bandit Joaquin

	  		          Am               G  
From the broken hills of Mexico  
    A                  Bm  
We took the horses we stole  
     Bm            G  
To Sonora and the California mines  
           A              Bm  
Where you gringos dig for gold  
     G            Bm                                 
Even north to the Oregon line  
     G           Bm  
The story is the same  
 G                   D         Bm  
All your women they tremble in fear  
        G             F# 7       Bm  
At the mention of my name  

   Bm                    G  
I rob the miner on the Coulterville Road  
  A                       Bm  
I leave his blood on the ground  
      Bm                   G  
Like mist through oak and digger pine  
    A             Bm  
I move without a sound  
      G               Bm  
Your finest horses belong to me  
   G               Bm  
I take them as I please  
  G                  
  G                D         Bm       
I line my pockets with your gold  
          G                      F#  
And I am gone with the midnight breeze  

Bm           
I am the bandit Joaquin  
                                     F#7  
I live in the wild with the bear and wolverine  
G                       Bm  
Over hill and valley I fly as in a dream  
          G              F#7                    Bm  
I am the ghost I am the fox I am the bandit Joaquin  


  Bm                G  
There is no use to wonder why  
    A             Bm  
My reasons are my own  
     Bm                   G       
The hatred I feel for the Anglo blood  
      A             Bm    
Lies deep within my bones  
G              Bm  
My segundo is Three Finger Jack  
     G                     Bm  
He cuts off the Chinaman's ears  
G                                D          Bm   
And wears them like a necklace around his throat  
        G                F#7     Bm  
He's a man who knows no fear  

      Bm                G  
The fools up there who make your laws  
          A                 Bm  
They are lawyers, they are thieves  
 Bm                     G                
They want a devil that they can blame  
        A                 Bm  
And Joaquin is what they need  
    G               Bm                               
So I'm the ghost of El Dorado  
         G                 Bm  
but the blame is on their heads  
    G                     D            Bm  
At night when hoof beats shake they ground  
      G                F#  
They tremble in their beds  

 Bm           
I am the bandit Joaquin  
                                      F#7  
I live in the wild with the bear and wolverine  
G                       Bm  
Over hill and valley I fly as in a dream  
          G              F#7                    Bm  
I am the ghost I am the fox I am the bandit Joaquin  

  G                   Bm  
Captain Love and his ranger band  
      G                 Bm  
They said they took my head  
      G                 Bm  
The fools rode into a stranger's camp  
          G                  F#  
And they left the wrong man dead  

G          Bm  
Others say I never was  
         G                Bm  
I am a dream of what could be  
     G            A      Bm        
But even if I had never lived  
     G                 F#7  
You would have invented me  

Bm           
I am the bandit Joaquin  
                                     F#7  
I live in the wild with the bear and wolverine  
G                      Bm  
Over hill and valley I fly as in a dream  
          G             F#7                     Bm  
I am the ghost I am the fox I am the bandit Joaquin
