  • Well he just turned 17
    When he left old Abilene
    With his bags…and permission
    From the kin
    Yeah but things just weren't the same
    After his Momma signed her name
    And let the navy…take him inahhh but
    What of Alicia
    Espanola
    13 years old
    Child of Mexico
    An he just turned 19 years
    When he learned to face his fears
    Of growing up…and acting
    Like a man
    He just cocked his sailor cap
    Stuck his hands down in his lap
    Leaned back and stroked…them girls in Japan

    ahhh but
    What of Alicia
    Espanola
    15 years old
    Child of Mexico
    An he just turned 23
    When he finally took his final leave
    Anchored in the port of
    San Diego
    Yeah he met this border girl
    An he fancied her body's curl
    So he married her…then carried her to Colorado

    ahhh but
    What of Alicia
    Espanola
    19 years old
    an old woman
    But out of Mexico
