From the recording A Girl Down In Mexico
Nothing was mysterious; I could see she was serious
When she told me what she was gonna do
I begged her to stay; there must be a better way
But when she shot me that look, I knew she was through
She ran off like she was jumpin’ bail
But this old cowboy is hot on her trail
She was last seen in Laredo, headin’ into Mexico
I just gotta get her back somehow
In her rag-top Lexus, the bluest eyes in Texas
Must be way across the border by now
I’ve been in every cantina; spoke to every señorita
How could she simply have disappeared?
Monterrey, Acapulco Bay; searchin’ everyday
She’d probably throw another fit if she knew I was here
Is she lost in the arms of José?
Will she ever come back to the USA?
It’s a long way from ridin’ herd to Mexico
And it’s a long way from where we were to here
I don’t know, babe, she might’ve crossed over at Del Rio
Hell, she could be in Cabo for all I know
I kinda like that “uno mas cerveza” thing I’ve learned
Is that how you say it? Hell, I think I like it down here
What was her name again? I...I can’t seem to remember…
