Juarez, Mexico

Thom Chacon
Language: English



I can see across the border
To the el paso side
I can hear the music blarin'
People laughing in the night
Where I'm standing there is a darkness
And the red river flos
I'm stuck down here in juarez, mexico

Tonight I lay near the water
Sleep with one eye closed
My finger on the trigger
My other arm around rose
I got plans for us to leave here
Think about it everyday
On a moonless night me and rosie'll slip away

I ain't gonna die in these streets for nothing
I ain't gonna starve another day
Made up my mind, I'm leaving
Doesn't namtter where we go
As long as we get out of juarez, mexico

By the time we cross the river
We will be texas bound
Stay the hell out Arizona
I heard the law could cut you down
If I'm working on this living, don't care what people say
We'll do a better job work hours for felipe

I ain't gonna die in these streets for nothing
I ain't gonna starve another day
Made up my mind, I'm leaving
Doesn't namtter where we go
As long as we get out of juarez, mexico

Rosie burns the bacon and chills
On a hot cedar fire
And off in the distance
Anotehr funeral pyre
These days I dream of america
And hope some day I'll go
But tonight I'll pray, for juarez, mexico.
