Down in Mexico
I'm down in Mexico, had to go,
Won't be home no more
I want mom and dad to know, I miss and love them so
Though I'll never see them anymore.
The day that I turned twenty one I could hardly wait
To say goodbye to mom and dad and shake the hand of fate
Fate was with me from the start, until that fateful day
A big man he took my sweetheart and I took his life away.
I stood and watched the man as he fell
And then I heard the policemen's whistle blow
And when I thought about that prison cell
I thought about old Mexico.
