Aaron Watson – Clear Isabel Chords

No Capo

G
Isabel and her brown skin shined like a sapphire in the summer sun
D
The pride and joy of a Mexican lawman who lived by the gun
Em
He got cross ways with the cartel they shot down his only son Jose
C
So in fear of his daughter's life

he packed their bags and late one night she heard him say
G I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line D They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine Em South Texas looks like heaven when you're down here in this living hell C So come on let's cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel The coast is clear Isabel
G They came across our homestead tired and hungry, cold and moving slow D We had fence to build a warm place to stay and they had nowhere to go Em So I worked cattle with her father C we were stretching wire and driving post all day G D While Isabel worked with my mother Em C and late at night I held her tight and she'd take my breath away G I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line D They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine Em South Texas looks like heaven C when you're down here in this living hell G D So come on let's cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel Em C The coast is clear Isabel G The sheriff came across her father D they treated him like an outlaw on the run Em And Isabel now wears my diamond C and that little boy she holds is my son G We got a green card for her father D Mariano but it came two years too late Em We got word that he'd been gunned C down in a border town shot in the back The last thing they heard him say G I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line D And they say that freedom is much Em sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine C South Texas looks like heaven when G you're down here in this living hell D So come on let's cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel Em The coast is clear Isabel C The coast is clear Isabel G D Clear Isabel Em C Clear Isabel
