Recorded by Hank Snow
Writter by Sheb Wooley
[C] When [F] Mexican Joe met Jole [C] Blon
Si, Si, [G7] Si, oui, oui, how they carried [C] on
He [F] held her tight and danced all night
And [C] crossed the border at daylight
When [G7] Mexican Joe met Jole [C] Blon.
Mexican Joe was wild and reckless
He walked into a honky-tonk in Texas
Looking for some real romance and pettin'
On a barroom stool alone this doll was settin'
He walked up to the bar and said, "I think I'll have a drink
Three fingers of tequilla; will clear my head, I think."
Well, she looked around and caught his eye
And Joe said, "I ... yi, yi, yi, yi."
When Mexican Joe met Jole Blon.
Joe said, "Lovely senorita
Let's go out and paint the town."
So he danced her and romanced her
And he showed that gal around
Jole Blon said, "I'm so hungry."
And she breathed a little sigh
So he fed her filet gumbo, enchiladas, on the side.
Then he held her close and whispered
"Will you be mine for life?
She said, "Oui, monsieur, but tell me
What'll we do about your wife?"
But he shouted, "Ah, Caramba
I think I'd better go."
So he swam he swam across the river
And went back to Mexico.
