One More Tequila....

His name was Steve, her name was Gina
They met at a bar called the Cabo Wabo Cantina
He was an insurance salesman from South Dakota
She was a first grade school teacher Phoenix, Arizona
They started dancing and it got real hot
Then it spilled over into the parking lot
One more tequila they were falling in love
One more's never enough

Don't bite off more than you can chew
There's things down here the devil himself wouldn't do
Just remember when you let it all go
What happens down in Mexico
Stays in Mexico

He woke up in the morning and he made a little telephone call
To check on his wife and his kids back at home, in Sioux Falls
She hopped right in the shower with a heavy, heavy mind
He knew it was the first time Gina'd ever crossed that line
They walked down to the beach and started drinking again
Jumped into the ocean for a dirty swim
One more margarita they were falling in love
One more's never enough

Don't bite off more than you can chew
There's things down here the devil himself wouldn't do
Just remember when you let it all go
What happens down in Mexico
Stays in Mexico
Oh, Mexico

Waiting at the bar in the terminal gate
She says, "Steve I've got to go, I'm gonna miss my plane."
He said, "One more tequila before you climb on up."
She said, "One more's never enough."

Don't bite off more than you can chew
There's things down here the devil himself wouldn't do
Just remember when you let it all go
What happens down in Mexico
Stays in Mexico

Stays in Mexico
Stays in Mexico
Oh, Mexico

Who needs you?

I just got tired of that same old job, tired of fightin' that freeway mob

I bet you never thought I'd really go, I'd never get as far as Mexico

I've even learned to speak the language some down on the beach drinkin' coke and rum

You wouldn't know me with this golden glow, smoke & sun in Mexico


I'm eatin right and I'm livin' good, doin everything I said I would

I should have left a long time ago


Who needs you I've got Mexico




Through it all nothings really changed no matter what honey that's a shame I still love you that's the way it goes he's got you, I've got Mexico

The El Vaquero Bar....

I crossed the Mississippi,
turned south at San Antone
A bowie knife, a woolen coat,
a grip bag on my arm
It's all somebody needs to make it through the land
Walk the night, travel light, cross the Rio Grande
Someone strums a mandolin, soft gulf breezes blow
My new life is waiting in old Mexico

I was once a married man livin' peacefully
Hard to say exactly when the devil blinded me
But there was some confusion when my sweet
wife left this world
Darker times, drunken crimes,
a dead young working girl
Left a jailer there in Caroline,
watching me from down below
My new life is waiting in old Mexico

Livin' in the shadows
Runnin' from my fame
Blowin' where the wind blows
Where no one knows my name

In the El Vaquero Bar in the town of Eagle Pass
Moments from my freedom warm whiskey in my glass
Some boracho took me for the man who stole his wife
He went for his forty-four as I reached for my knife
He never fired a second shot he was just too slow
My new life is waiting in old Mexico

I hear of hidden harbors south of Mazatlan
Where cool spring mountain waters
meet the warm Pacific sun
I pray the miles I've traveled and all the sins I bear
Burn away like mornin' fog and vanish in the air
Miles beyond the border now, but many miles to go
My new life is waiting in old Mexico

In a Bar in Acuña Called Ma Crosby's....

In a bar in Acuña called Ma Crosby's
I found myself not feeling any pain
I told a 'Frisco girl I'd come for freedom
She said she'd only come to catch a train
We struck up some idle conversation
Traded all the troubles on our minds
One thing lead to another in the evening
And I fell in love again for my last time

Blame it on Mexico if you need a reason
Say too much guitar music, tequila, salt and lime
Blame it on Mexico, but she's the reason
That I fell in love again for my last time

Daylight dawned and found me in Del Rio
In a rundown motel room as dark as hell
I felt all the pains of a morning after
And all alone as far as I could tell

Why she left I have no way of knowing
I guess she caught her train and that's a crime
She took everything I ever wanted
And I fell in love again for my last time

Blame it on Mexico if you need a reason
Say too much guitar music, tequila, salt and lime
Blame it on Mexico, but she's the reason
That I fell in love again for my last time

Kevin Fowler

Uno, Dos, Tres, Quatro

Well her name was Rita Flores
Met her down in Matamores
She was hotter than the Mexican sun
She's one sweet Chicita
My latino lolita
I knew right then she had to be the one

She worked at the cantina
So I ordered a teqilla
Just to get a closer look into her eyes
Handed her my peso
She turned and walked away
I don't think she even realized

Oh Senorita, Ooh Mas fina
Come and love my por favor
I wanna be your numero uno
Your one and only Vato
Me love you long and that's for sure
wanna hold you, never let go
I'll be your little gringo
Marry you and take you away
Aww Senorita, Ooh Mas Fina
Why won't you love me baby Por Que

Yeah she never caught my lingo
because I was a gringo
she didn't understand a word I'd say
she say "mi no comprende"
but that smile on her face
told me I should try it anyway

I said aww senorita, ooh mas fina
why won't you love me baby por que

All I Know About Mexico...

I didn't know you weren't supposed to drink the water
I never knew it was so hard to get through south of that border
If I had any idea it took that many pesos to make a dollar
I'd have moved down there
Yeah, I'd probably been a millionare
Rosa at the bayou told me Sinco de Mayo is their fourth of July
And you don't sneak up on a jabanero pepper and just take a bite
Rosa says the sunsets on some of them beaches that'll make you cry
I said, is that right?
Cuz up until tonight

All I knew about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car as fast as they could go
And all I know about pretty a white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing a little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Or working on a tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico

And I've heard some pretty scary stuff about them jails down in Tijuana
And it ain't nothin' like the US if you get busted
And I hear he's all hauked up on that marijuana
I can't help but worrying about her being down there when he leaves her
And you know he's gonna leave her
Any day now, yeah, the cops will come around
Wanna know what I've known

All I know about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car as fast as they could go
And all I know about a pretty white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing a little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Oh she's working on her tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico

All I knew about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car just as fast as they could go
And all I know about a pretty white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing her little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Oh she's working on her tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico
All I know, I know, I know, I know about Mexico

Tim McGraw

Margie said, Roy you ain't listening to me
And I've got a whole lot more to say
Roy just crossed the floor and picked up his car keys
And she ain't seen or heard from him to this day

And that's why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
And the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm wind blows
That's why God made Mexico

And Betty fixed Joe dinner every night
At half past six
Cause that's when he rolled through that door
For sixteen years and not a thank you from his lips
She don't fix him dinner no more

And that's why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
Where the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm winds blow
That's why God made Mexico

Cause life is sweet in a border town
You learn to let your hair down
And you don't make trouble
You learn to dance the Fandango
You change your name, maybe change your face
Get used to beans chili paste
And you learn to live and love
Life in the slow lane

And that's why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
Maybe Monterey or Acapulco
Anywhere the warm winds blow
Don't you know
That's why God made Mexico

That's why God made Mexico

Too bad that Tim McGraw doesn't know his Monterey, California from his Monterrey, NL, MX.

Still, a really impressive collection of songs.

I had a relatively tough day yesterday and am looking forward to going to one of those little border towns tomorrow just to drink a few and to eat tacos.

30 seconds worth of "Mexico" as written by James Taylor, and performed by Jimmy Buffett:

How Can We Forget:

Way down here, you need a reason to move. Feel a fool running your stateside games.
Lose your load, leave your mind behind, Baby James.
Woh, Mexico, it sounds so simple, I just got to go.
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home, guess I'll have to go now.

"Americano" got the sleepy eye but his body's still shaking like a live wire.
Sleepy senorita with the eyes on fire.
Woh, Mexico. It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low.
Moon's so bright, like to light up the night, make everything all right.

Baby's hungry and the money's all gone.
The folks back home don't want to talk on the phone.
She gets a long letter, sends back a postcard, times are hard.
Woh, down in Mexico, I never really been so I don't really know.
And oh, Mexico, I guess I'll have to go.
Woh, Mexico, I never really been so I don't really know.
And oh, Mexico, I guess I'll have to go now.
Talking bout Mexico. Big ol' honkey-tonk down in Mexico.

Call me biased, but Buffett's version is better IMHO.

Great collection guys! Tons of good lyrics:

"Who needs you....I've got Mexico"

"Feel like a fool running your stateside games, lose your load, leave your mind behind"

"My new life's waiting in old Mexico"

"What happens in Mexico......Stays in Mexico"


Saludos

Here's an interesting ditty penned by Grace Slick:

Owsley and Charlie, twins of the trade,
Come to the Poet's Room
Talking about the problems of a leaf,
And yes, it'll be back soon

There used to be tons of gold and green
Comin' up here from Mexico
A donde esta la planta, mi amigo, del sol?
[The translation is: "Where is the plant, my friend, of the sun."]

But Mexico is under the thumb
Of a man we call Richard
And he's come to call himself king
But he's a small-headed man
And he doesn't know a thing
About how to deal for you

How to deal for you
There are millions of you now
I mean it's not as if you were alone
There are brothers everywhere
Just waiting for a toke on that gold
And God knows how far it can go

You're famous Uncle Charlie
For your Mexican smoke
You're a legend Owsley
For your righteous dope

There were a half a million people on the lawn
And we sang to their faces in the dawn
How long will that young race
Wait for the jailer's time to end?
How long will the Panther race
Wait for the iron bars to bend?
And no no no no no nobody waits
