Down the road a ways I have heard say a new day's comin' on
Where the woman folks are friendly and the law leaves you alone.
Well I'll believe it when I see it but I haven't seen it yet.
Don't mind me just keep on talkin' I am just looking for my hat.
Ain't no God in Mexico
Ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man.
If I had not seen the sunshine Hell I would not cuss your rain
My feet would fit a railroad track
I would made one Hell of a train.
Me and Louise Higginbotham use to race across the yard
Back in 1947 that's when more than times were hard
Well pity me I didn't see the line in time and like a fool
In front of God and everybody I politely blew my cool
Ain't no God in Mexico ain't no comfort in the can
When your down in Matamoras gettin' busted by the man
If I had not seen the sunshine I would not cuss your rain.
If my feet would fit a railroad track I guess I would have been a train
Ain't No God In Mexico Lyrics
