Rose Of San Joaquin

	  		***INTRO: G  Em  G  Em 
    G                       Bm        C                           G 
Farewell to the lights of Madera, I'm leaving with the wind at my back 
G                             Bm         C                         G 
Tell all of my friends in Dos Palos, I'm gone but I'll be circling back 
G                               Em 
Now I'm crossing the Chowchilia River 
       G                     Em 
By the light of a ragged moonbeam 
          C        Cm             G     Em 
Lord I'll miss the Rose of San Joaquin 
Em            G                   Bm           C           G 
I'll miss the sun on the Sierra Nevadas, adobe moon on the rise 
G                          Bm              C                     G 
Shining down on my love in Madera, shining into her dark Spanish eyes 
G                              Em 
Oh she taught me those Mexican love songs 
G                      Em 
"Volver, Volver" in my dreams 
      C        Cm          G        
And I miss the Rose of San Joaquin 
G                   Em 
Caught somewhere between 
    C            Cm             G     Em 
The road and the Rose of San Joaquin 
Em     G                      Bm             C                      G 
Oh her black hair fell on the blanket in the tall grass we with the dew 
G                                    Bm 
Making love through the night by the river  
         C                          G 
Oh Magdalene how my heart cries for you 
G                        Em 
Alone on this highway of darkness 
G                       Em 
You are the light of my dreams 
      C        Cm             G 
And I miss the Rose of San Joaquin 
G                   Em 
Caught somewhere between 
    C            Cm             G     Em 
The road and the Rose of San Joaquin 
***OUTOR:G  Em  C  Cm  G
