mexico

 

words and music by

john greene

 

you could see the fires of the evening glow

as we crossed the border in to mexico

smiling people in a smiling land

looking for dreams in the palm of a hand

 

the sound of guitars echo everywhere

margaritas and a girls dark hair

firecrackers and a new found friend

nothing to hide no need to pretend

 

play, play your love songs just for me

and we'll stay, stay until the music sets us free

 

all too soon see the night turn to day

time to make a move go back to l.a.

but my heart stays in a southern land

cooking with tequila mariachi band

 

play, play your love songs just for me

and we'll stay, stay until the music sets us free
