Veracruz

	  		
F  G 

Am      Am/G       F    C 
I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns 
              G    F 
I heard Maria crying 
Am          Am/G    F         C 
Late last night I heard the news 
                   G  F 
That Veracruz was dying 
Am--Am/C     G    F 
Veracruz was dy---ing (hold)  

F  C  G  C  

Am      Am/G      F     C 
Someone called Maria's name 
  G               F 
I swear it was my father's voice 
        Am      Am/G         F           C 
Saying, "If you stay, you'll all be slain 
     G                   F 
You must leave now, you have no choice 
Am       Am/G     F            C 
Take the servants and ride west 
G                      F 
  Keep the child close to your chest  

Am           Am/G   F              C 
  When the American troops withdraw 
G            F 
  Let Zapata take the rest" 
(Bass run F-E-D-C-A to...) 

Am      Am/G     F           C 
I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns 
              G    F 
I heard Maria call-ing 
  
Am   Am/C    G   F 
Vera-cruz is dy--ing, 
        F    G       C 
And Cuerna - vaca's falling" (hold) 

      F    G    C 
Aquel dia  yo jure (On that day I swore) 
         F      G      C 
Hacia el puerto volvere, (To the port I will return) 
G                    F 
Aunque el destino cambio mi vida, (Even though destiny changed my life) 
   Dm            G 
En Veracruz morire (hold) (In Veracruz I shall die) 
      F          G 
Aquel dia  yo jure (On that day I swore) 


Am      Am/G      F           C 
I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns 
                    G    F 
I heard them in the har-bor  
(Bass run F-E-D-C-A to...) 

       Am     Am/C     G   F 
Saying Vera - cruz was dy--ing
