G Down to the Banana Republics Am Down to the tropical sun D7 Go the expatriated Americans G Hopin' to find some fun G Some of them go for the sailing Am Caught by the lure of the sea D7 Tryin' to find what is ailing G Livin' in the land of the free G Some of them are running from lovers Am Leaving no forward address D7 Some of them are running tons of ganja G some are running from the I.R.S Chorus (see tab below) Dm Late at night you will find them Am In the cheap hotels and bars C G Hustling the senioritas C G D G While they dance beneath the stars Dm Spending those renegade pesos Eb D On a bottle of rum and a lime C G Singin' give me some words I can dance to C G D7 G Or a mel - ody that rhymes First you learn the native customs Soon a word of spanish or two You know that you cannot trust them 'cause they know they can't trust you Expatriated Americans, feelin' so all alone Telling themselves the same lies That they told themselves back home (solo) G Am D G Dm Am C G C G Down to the Banana Republics Things aren't as warm as they seem None of the natives are buying any Second-hand American dreams (repeat chorus) Down to the Banana Republics Down to the tropical sun Go the expatriated Americans Hopin' to find some fun (repeat chords and fade) Chorus Tab "Late at night...."
