The Mexican

Album: First Base (1972)
  • He's called Fernandez
    Livin' on a gun
    Dreams of Santa Anna
    Fighting in the sun

    Drums so loud from outside
    Makes it hard to dream
    A rain is fallin' hard and fast
    Makes it all seem real

    Mornin', come mornin'
    A Chico's gotta have his share
    Mornin', sad mornin'
    Said he must be there

    Mornin', sad mornin'
    What a laugh, and I cried
    And I cry, cry, cry, cry, cried

    Mornin', sad mornin'

    Senorita panning
    Chico come on home
    Santa Anna's losing
    You'll be first to go

    Sam Houston's laughing
    Davy Crockett too
    When Anna takes the Alamo
    The first to go is you

    Mornin', come mornin'
    A Chico's gotta have his share
    Mornin', sad mornin'
    Heaven will be there

    Mornin', sad mornin'
    What a laugh and a laugh
