Jim Reeves South Of The Border Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2008 11:00:00 AM

South of the border - down mexico way
Thats where I fell in love, where the stars above - came out to play
And now as I wander - my thoughts ever stray
South of the border - down mexico way

She was a picture - in old spanish lace
Just for a tender while, I kissed a smile - upon her face
cause it was fiesta - and we were so gay
South of the border - mexico way

Then she smiled as she whispered manjanna
Never dreaming that we were parting
Then I lied as a whispered manjanna
cause our tomorrow never came

South of the border - I jumped back one day
There in a veil of white, by the candle light - she knelt to pray
The mission bells told me (ding-dong) - that I musnt stay
South of the border - mexico way
