8-beat intro. Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Down in old Tijuana town,  There's this happy honkin' sound,
Somethin' you just can't put down.  It's the world renown,  Tijuana cab.  
So you're not impressed you say,  With a beatup Chevrolet,  
But that driver man Jose,  Knows his way around,  Tijuana town.  
Hey, ya wanna swing,  Have yourself a fling,  
Meet some pretty thing?  Livin' like a king!  
Picture postcards "n" hot tequila,
French perfume from Venezuela,
When your on a Tijuana taxi ride.
Listen to Buck Trent play "Tijuana Taxi" on the 5-string banjo (youtube)
