Lyrics and chords copied from http://www.thetabworld.com/Ian_Tyson__Jaquima_To_Freno_guitar_tab.html
(There are several copies on other web sites. I wouldn't trust the alignment of the chords here. You might want to check other sites.)

JAQUIMA TO FRENO
Blaine McIntyre, Ian Tyson

A
Jaquima to Freno

He's an old vaquero

From another time

Hands as fine as the
                 D
Dealers of Reno

He's been to the ocean

He's been to the sea
A
Big long tapaderos hangin' both sides

Of an old Visalia tree


CHORUS 1:
E                A E
Hey Mr. Vaquero
                       D
Put a handle on my pony for me
                   C#
Teach me the mystery


VERSE 2:
A
Jaquima to Freno

He's an old amansador

Still hangin' on

Just about gone

Like the California condor
D
He been down to the rodear ground

Seen him on the movie screen
         A
Ah but sometimes I think he's like America

Only see him in your dreams

(REPEAT CHORUS 1)


CHORUS 2:
C#       E
Did they sing all day
         C#
Did they dance all night
         E
Did they ride their spade bit ponies
                   C#
Through the golden light
         E
Did they find true love
                      C#
Was it all a bunch of lies
E                             A
Quien sabe, maybe it was paradise

(REPEAT FIRST VERSE, CHORUSES 1 AND 2 IN THAT ORDER)

[Recorded by Ian Tyson on "All the Good 'Uns," Vanguard CD 79495, 1996; and by New West on "Buckaroo Dream."]

amansador = horsebreaker
The following websites might shed some light on the vocabulary:
"He learned how to start a colt and take him from Jaquima to Freno"
Saddle & Tack Glossary (see jaquima, freno, spade bit, tapaderos)
Cattle Terms: A glossary (see rodear -- not a misspelling of rodeo!)
Cowboy Terms: The People (see vaquero)
"Visalia tree" seems to be a type of saddle, but I haven't found a definition
