Mandarin Oranges

	  		
Intro: C  G/B  Am   G  C  G/B  Am   G 

verse 1 
     C        G/B      Am                     Dm 
At a table in Juarez a woman named Dolores is drinking 
          G                                                C 
I see the tear in her eye and I like to pretend what she's thinking 
      F                        Am                     G 
She's dreaming of Goimar and a cottage for two by the sea 
    Dm                   G                  C   G/B  Am  G 
And mandarin oranges and Mexican lemongrass tea 


verse 2 
  C         G/B   Am                    Dm 
I married Dolores twenty-one years ago, Sunday 
      G                                       C 
And Dolores she left me twenty-one years ago, Monday 
    F                           Am                         G 
I remember the laughter and the last midnight feast by the sea 
   Dm                   G                  C   Dm 
Of mandarin oranges and Mexican lemongrass tea 


Bridge 
      F                      Am                            G 
And I think of her often, my friends ask what she means to me 
       Dm                   G                  C   G/B  Am  G 
I say, mandarin oranges and Mexican lemongrass tea 


Interlude 
C  G/B  Am   G  C  G/B  Am   G  C  G/B  Am   G 


verse 3 
C            G/B       Am                      Dm 
Back here in Juarez, I work at my job, waiting tables 
      G                                                  C 
And I long to go speak to her, somehow I don't think I'm able 
     F                         Am                       G 
But afraid she will know me as I ask her, what shall it be 
            Dm                   G                  C   Dm 
She smiles, mandarin oranges and Mexican lemongrass tea 


Bridge 
            F                      Am                     G 
We should return to Goimar and the cottage for two by the sea 
        Dm                   G                  C  
And the mandarin oranges and Mexican lemongrass tea 


Outro 
C  G/B  Am   G  C  G/B  Am   G  C  G/B  Am   C
