SEASHORE OF OLD MEXICO (Merle Haggard) Merle Haggard - 1969 Hank Snow - 1971 George Strait - 2005 Also recorded by: Kenny Seratt; Freddy Weller. I left out of Tucson with no destination in mind I was runnin' from trouble and the jail term the judge had in mind And the border meant freedom, a new life and romance And that's why I thought I should go And start my life over on the seashores of Old Mexico My first night in Juarez I lost all the money I had One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad But I must keep on runnin', it's too late to turn back I'm wanted in Tucson I know Yeah, and things will blow over on the seashores of Old Mexico Two Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't say Let me ride on the back of a flatbed half loaded with hay Down through Durango, Colima, Almera, then into Manzanillo Where I slept in the sunshine on the seashores of Old Mexico After one long siesta I came wide awake in the night I was startled by someone who shadowed the pale moonlight My new-found companion one young senorita Who offered a broken hello To the gringo she found on the seashores of Old Mexico She spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never return For her Mexican husband she really had no great concern But she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo That's all I needed to know Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of Old Mexico Yeah, she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo That's all that I needed to know, hah-hah Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of Old Mexico (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2012)
