Lyrics

OLD MEXICO

IT SEEMS LIKE A LIFETIME AGO SINCE THAT NIGHT I FIRST MET HER, IT WAS SOUTH OF THE BORDER, SOMEWHERE IN OLD MEXICO.
EVERYONE TOLD ME STAY AWAY SHE'S NOTHIN BUT TROUBLE, I WAS JUST A YOUNG COWBOY THERE WAS NOTHIN' THAT I DIDN'T KNOW.

A COUPLE TEQUILAS AND I SOON FOUND MYSELF AT HER TABLE, I WONDERED WHY SUCH A YOUNG BEAUTY WAS SITTIN' ALONE, I FIGURED SHE WAS JUST HERE LOOKIN FOR SOMEONE, BUT THAT RING ON HER FINGER TOLD ME SOMETHIN THAT I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.

CHORUS: NOW I'M A LOT WISE FROM A LIFETIME OF LIVIN',I KNOW I WAS YOUNG THEN AND SO VERY WILD IN MY WAYS.
SHE TOLD ME TO LEAVE HER ALONE, SHE WAS THERE WITH SOMEONE, HER WORDS SAID TO GO BUT I THOUGHT THAT HER EYES SAID TO STAY.

EVERY HEAD TURNED AS THE DOOR TO THE BACK ROOM FLEW OPEN, I KNEW HE WAS TROUBLE, I SAW HIS HAND REACH FOR HIS GUN.
I FELT A SHARP BURNING PAIN IN MY SHOULDER, BUT HE LAY ON THE FLOOR WHEN ALL OF THE SHOOTIN' WAS DONE.

OUT THE FRONT DOOR WE RAN, RIGHT FOR OUR HORSES. WE RODE THEM FOR HOURS AS FAST AS THEY EVER DID GO.
WHATEVER BECAME OF THAT GIRL I'LL DIE WITHOUT KNOWIN', I'LL NEVER GO BACK, I'M WANTED IN OLD MEXICO, NO I'LL NEVER GO BACK, I'M WANTED IN OLD MEXICO.
