Song Description

Eileen brought me a set of lyrics which I rewrote and composed music. The original tune was different as were the lyrics, but it evolved over 20 years into a powerful composition we hope finds a home in TV or Film.

Story Behind the Song

How Mexmo started "Why don't you start the Mexican Motown? Not just record artists, nurture their confidence and stage presence too. You can call it Mexmo!" Those words were prophetically uttered by my longtime music buddy Chris Montez on my front porch as he contemplated his dream of retiring to Mexico and working with kids. That was over four years ago. Chris is still on the road delighting audiences worldwide with his many hits. There's even a documentary of his life in production now, Chris Montez, A Man and His Music. Be sure and watch for it, he's a musical treasure. Mexmo became a corporation in Mexico and currently working on our 21st CD. Our goals have always included creating events for local charity groups, and encouraging amateur and professional musicians and singers. Mexmo! Mexmo is located in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. What you get is MexiBlues, Baja Bluegrass, Mariachi Fusion, Coconut Country and Twisted Americana.

Lyrics

STARIN' OUT THE WINDOW, BEGGIN' MERCY FROM THE NIGHT

LORD KNOWS YOU NEED HELP IF YOU'RE GONNA GET IT RIGHT

TOO NUMB TO CRY; TOO TOUGH TO DIE


(CHORUS)

LET THE BLUES BEGIN; LET THE BLUES BEGIN

IT A NO WIN SITUATION YOU'RE IN

SO IF THE BLUES FIT-WEAR IT

YOU'LL LEARN TO GRIN AND BEAR IT

LET THE BLUES BEGIN


FABRICATED IMAGE FROM ANOTHER DAY

SMILES FROM MY LOVER IN DREAMS FADE AWAY

FELT THAT FIRST TEAR SLIDE RIGHT INTO MY BEER (CHORUS)


NEVER CAN OUTRUN 'EM - THEY KEEP CATCHING UP TO YOU

'COS LOVE IS JUST A WORD NOW LIKE FAITHFUL AND TRUE

THEY CANCEL YOUR SMILE AND EV'RY THING WORTHWILE (CHORUS)

(TAG)

LET THE BLUES BEGIN, LET THE BLUES BEGIN

TO NUMB TO CRY - TOO TOUGH TO DIE - LET THE BLUES BEGIN
