[Intro]
Em   C   Am7  C
Em   C   A    C
 
[Verse 1]
Em              C                        Am7         C
  Moving on the floor now, babe you're a bird of paradise
Em                 C           A              C
  Cherry ice cream smile, I suppose it's very nice
       Em                      C
With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    Am7                       C
you catch that mirror way out west
Em                C                         A                    C     E5
  You know you're something special and you look like you're the best
 
[Chorus]
E             B           D             A
  Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
E                B              D                A
  Just like that river twisting though the dusty land
E              B                 D                 A
  And when she shines she really shows you all she can
E         B           D             A
  Oh Rio, Rio, dance across the Rio Grande
 
[Instrumental]
Em   C   Am7  C
Em   C   A    C
 
[Verse 2]
Em                     C              Am7          C
  I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
Em   C             A     C             Em
  Two of a billion stars,  it means so much to me
C              Am7            C
 Like a birthday or a pretty view
Em             C             A                  C     E5
  But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you
 
[Chorus]
E             B           D             A
  Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
E                B              D               A
  Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
E              B                 D                 A
  And when she shines she really shows you all she can
E         B           D             A
  Oh Rio, Rio, dance across the Rio Grande

[Verse 3]
Em               C                     Am7             C
 Hey now.. woo.. look at that, did she nearly run you down
       Em                   C
At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive,
A                 C             Em
you make me feel alive, alive, alive
C              Am7          C             Em
  I'll take my chance cause luck is on my side or something
  C
I know what you're thinking
  A                     C                     E5
I tell you something, I know what you're thinking
 
[Chorus]
E             B           D             A
  Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
E                B             D               A
  Just like that river twists across the dusty land
E              B                 D                 A
  And when she shines she really shows you all she can
E         B           D             A
  Oh Rio, Rio, dance across the Rio Grande
 
E             B              D            A
  Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
E             B               D              A
  And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
E         B              D                A
  Oh Rio, Rio, hear them shout across the land
E                B                 D          A
  From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande
 
[Sax Solo]
E   B   D   A   x2
 
[Outro]
E         B         D        A
   Do do do do de-do, Do do do do de-do
E         B         D        A
   Do do do do de-do, Do do do do de-do
