Gm D D7 Gm
1. I think my baby loves me, She loves this highway too,
When she needs to ramble, nothin' else that will do.
(What do you think Cholita?)

2. My baby needs to ramble. She needs that open road. She'll drift from town to town,
long as she's feelin' low.
(You know that's right baby. Just a sad-eyed girl with a driftin' heart)

3. Think my baby's getting restless, She'll soon be gone again.
She knows I'll catch up with her. Can you tell me where or when, Cholita?
(Yeah man that girl can be hard to find sometimes)

4. We think some day we'll find the road that'll take us all home.
Then we'll all be happy, no more need to roam.
(You know what I mean baby. There she goes on down the road)

Guitar Solo
Chorus

5. Maybe she went home to Memphis; She loves that southern breeze
Or down to Mississippi, Lookin' for a life of ease.
(I know you're out there baby, and I'm steady on your trail)

6. I might look down on the border. We had us some fun for a while.
The spat we had in Laredo, things got a little too wild.
(Gonna get rough on ya - you better watch out)

7. Some people travel for business, Others just to look around.
When you're on a dark road, the truth it can't be found.
(She's always got a bag packed and ready to go)

8. Let's go down to Cuba, hear Cuarteta Patria play.
We'll enrich our hearts with a memory we'll have the rest of our days.
(C'mon baby let's go...)
