Waylon Jennings Ain't No God In Mexico Lyrics

Last updated: 03/16/2006 11:00:00 AM

Down the road a ways I've heard said a new day's coming on
Where the womenfolk are friendly and the law leaves you alone
Well, I'll believe it when I see it, and I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me, just keep on talkin'--I'm just looking for my hat
There 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'd never felt the sunshine, hell I would not curse the rain
If my feet could fit a railroad track, I guess I'd-a been a train

Me and Louise Higginbotham used to chase across the yard
Back in 1947, that's when more than times were hard
Well pity me, I didn't find the line in time 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 you're down in Matamoros gettin' busted by the man
If I'd never felt the sunshine, hell I would not curse the rain
If I hadn't been railroaded, well I guess I'd been a train
