Paul Eason - Ballad of Old Mexico Lyrics


I head out for old Mexico, because I ainít got no where else to go
Iím beat up and broke down and tired of life, but I keep on ridiní in spite of my strife
In a little cantina down by Monterrey vaqueros drink and mariachis play
And tequila keeps coming to keep my old memories down

I see her lookiní over my way, as we dance together she tells me her name
ďEsperanzaĒ she whispers and itís then that I know sheís stolen my heart with no intent to let go
Iím feeliní better than I have in a while but thereís still pain down beneath this smile
And tequila keeps cominí to keep my old memories down

The days go by and our love is well, but thereís a passion that burns in her eyes I can tell
She says she must go away for a while, so off to the little cantina I ride
I ainít been there long when I hear from a friend, heís seen Esperanza outside with a man
And tequila keeps cominí to keep me from hurtiní again

I walk outside and there they both stand, the stranger turns Ďround to see my gun in my hand
He ducks away but my bullet has gone straight for Esperanza, I can only look on
Her eyes lock with mine as I rush to her side, I fall to my knees on the street and I cry
And tequila keeps cominí to keep all this pain off my mind

Been ridiní for days but I canít stop now, Federales behind me will catch me somehow
Fearís taken over, I only ride on to think of the days before my hope was gone
I only ride on to think of the days before my hope was gone
And tequila keeps cominí to keep my old memories down
And tequila keeps cominí to keep my old memories down

[Thanks to Lauren for lyrics]
