    Song : C
    Intro :
    G C
    C G
    In the Morelos Mountains campesinos are planting their fields
    G C
    Where the ghost of Zapata rides a horse that can still outrun the wheel
    C C7 F Dm
    High in the sky above, and clear out of sight
    G C
    It’s the Free Mexican Air Force flyin’ tonight

    C G
    In the City of Angels, a cowboy is cooling his heels
    G C
    Remembering that God gave us herbs and the fruits of the fields
    C C7 F Dm
    But a criminal law that makes outlaws of those seeking light
    G G
    Made the Free Mexican Air Force — Mescalito riding his white horse —
    G C
    Yeah, the Free Mexican Air Force is flyin’ tonight!
    G D7 G G7
    pause Flying so high – yi – hiyeeeee! …

    long solos / instrumental as verses.
    How strange that an innocent herb causes money to burn
    They’ll jail you or kill you for making those rich fat cats squirm
    They’re the fools who make rules with no difference between wrong or right
    That’s why the Free Mexican Air Force is flyin’ tonight

    Uncle Sam in his misery put a nix on the fields of Guerrero
    Sayin’, “Shoot down all gringos and wetbacks who dare wear sombreros!”
    Either run for your life, surrender, or stand up and fight —
    Or join the Free Mexican Air Force — Mescalito riding his white horse —
    Yeah, the Free Mexican Air Force is flying tonight!
    Flying so high – yi – hiyeeeee! …

    instrumental bridge

    It is not marijuana destroying the minds of the young
    But confusion continued for power and greed in all forms
    Well, the borders of evil will fall to the smugglers of light!
    We’re the Free Mexican Air Force and we’re flyin’ tonight!

    In San Antonio, they tell me that power and money are one
    They can buy us or sell you to keep you afraid, on the run
    But no one can stop us! My vision is clearly in sight!
    And the Free Mexican Air Force — Mescalito riding his white horse —
    Yeah, the Free Mexican Air Force is flyin’ tonight!
    Flying so high – yi – hiyeeeee! …

    C G
    We were smoking colitas while other were loading their guns
    G G7 C
    Blowing smoke from their six-shooters, spinning their barrels for fun
    C7 F Dm
    Contrabandistas, — banditos alike —-
    G C
    We’re the Free Mexican Air Force and we’re flyin’ tonight!

    C G
    High in the hills we are harvesting sweet sensimillia
    G G7 C
    Yeah, the law wants it all ’cause they know that the wild weed can free ya
    C7 F Dm
    And freedom for us is a prison for the rulers of might!
    G G
    That’s why the Free Mexican Air Force — Mescalito riding his white horse —
    G C
    Yeah, the Free Texican Air Force is flyin’ tonight!
    G D7 G G7 C
    (pause) Flyin’ so high- yi- yee… Flyin’ tonight!

    G C

    2. And if a certain singer knew I was at the show, he'd substitute Hobbit for Henry

    Hard to stay anonymous when that happens.
