Album: Americano! (2004)

  • Scorpions sting
    I hear the mission bells ring
    Another night of runnin' is another day
    I don't dance the hangman's swing
    All roads lead back to Tucson
    Pray, Maria I don't find the noose on
    La Policia's askin' questions
    Say you don't know nothin'
    And you ain't seen a thing

    Ave Maria!
    I pray,
    Ave Maria!
    I pray!

    They say the blood is on my hands
    ‘Cause I put down the money
    And I made up the plan

    Blue eyes
    White lies
    Straight teeth and a crooked soul
    Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
    ¡Americano!

    Maria these things I do
    Every night they cut me in two
    It's in my blood to live for the kill
    But God only knows
    That I want to stay and love you
    Full moon is on the rise
    Patron saint of love and lies
    The payoffs and the alibis
    Shotgun shells and four-wheel drives

    Ave Maria!
    I pray,
    Ave Maria!
    I pray!

    They gonna find me guilty as a trigger man
    ‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

    Blue eyes
    White lies
    Straight teeth and a crooked soul
    Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
    ¡Americano!

    I can burn like a wildfire
    Disappear like a ghost
    A dagger in my cloak
    I'm a rich and gracious host
    Don't fear my ill repute
    The sweetest fruit is stolen fruit
    And if you're feelin' dirty, cruel or mean
    Let a little more money make your conscience clean

    Ave Maria!
    I pray,
    Ave Maria!
    I pray!

    They say the blood is on my hands
    ‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

    Blue eyes…white lies…straight teeth and a ravenous soul
    Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
    ¡Americano! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
