     C                    F                 C
In a little cafe just the other side of the border
                                     F                        C
She was just sitting there giving me looks that made my mouth water
     F
So I started walking her way, she belonged to bad man, Jose
      G                                                C F  G
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave when I heard her say, yeah

F                 C
Come a little bit closer
       F          G                  F
You're my kind of man, so big and so strong
                  C
Come a little bit closer
F        G                             C F G F
I'm all alone, and the night is so long

      C                       F                  C
So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so inviting
                                 F                     C
That I just couldn't resist just one little kiss, so exciting
       F
Then I heard the guitar player say, "Vamoose, Jose's on his way"
      G                                                   C F  G
And I knew, yes I knew I should run, but then I heard her say, yeah

F                 C
Come a little bit closer
       F          G                  F
You're my kind of man, so big and so strong
                  C
Come a little bit closer
F        G                             C F G F
I'm all alone, and the night is so long

         C                     F                   C
Then the music stopped, when I looked the cafe was empty
                                 F                      C
Then I heard Jose say, "Man, you know you're in trouble plenty"
     F
So I dropped my drink from my hand and through the window I ran
       G                                   C  F G
And as I rode away I could hear her say to Jose

F                 C
Come a little bit closer
       F          G                  F
You're my kind of man, so big and so strong
                  C
Come a little bit closer
F        G                             C F G F
I'm all alone, and the night is so long
