"Goin' Down To Mexico" Music Lyrics
I was on my way down to Mexico,there was trouble on the rise.It was nothing more than I’d left behind,which was much to my surprise.I turned around and lit a cigarettewiped the dust off of my boots.When up ahead I saw the crowd,I knew it was no use. I’ts been the same way for Oh so long,it looks like I’m singing the same old song. A fine and fancy man was he,doing good things for the poor.Givin’ rides in his rockin’ Eighty-eight for free.They could not hope for more.When it came my turn he said to me,"Have I seen your face before?"I said, "Oh no, you must be wrong,I’m from a distant shore. So if you don’t mind, I’ll just move alongbut it looks like I’m singin’ the same old song." A Nineteen Forty movie starwith a long forgotten name.She was a sexy mess in her pleated dress,still hangin’ on to fame.With forgotten lines she missed her cueand left a glass of wine at home.She was singin’ the same song that I was.Could we both be wrong? So hand in hand we walked along,each of us singin’ the same old song.
