TIJUANA WHORE
(Music & Lyrics: J. Powell) © 1997

He'd never seen this place before
Never thought he'd see the world
From this side of the border
Mistreated suburban kid
Cut loose from Mama's twisted grip
He won't come crawlin' back no more

His head started spinning
Then he turned and gave a grin
Like he thought of somethin'
Nobody did before
Drinkin' tequila with all the sweet señoritas
And he dropped a "20" on a Tijuana whore

He got tattooed at seventeen
Dropped out of school
And got a place down by the beach
The girls call on the phone
Saying "Let's go dancin' in Mexico"
"Say you will...Say it's just for me"

Drinkin' and dancin'
He ain't got time for romancin'
Sometimes somethin' less is somethin' more
One more tequila then he's off to meet Maria
His twenty dollar Tijuana whore

He don't go dancin' anymore
She just waits to see him walkin' through her door
He sees her every day
Every night he comes home late
His wife don't care as long as he comes home
She puts the kids to sleep
He pours himself another drink
"Maria, who says money don't buy love no more"
