Seashores Of Old Mexico

Song Author Merle Haggard Lyrics by: Merle Haggard Performer: Merle Haggard Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I left out of Tucson with no destination in [G7]mind   
I was [Dm]running from [G7]trouble and the [Dm]jail-term the [G7]Judge had in [C]mind [G7]    
And [C]the border meant freedom a new life romance
And that's why I [C7]thought I should [F]go   [C]    [G7]    
And s[Dm]tart my life [G7]over on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico [G7]    

My [C]first night in Juarez lost all the money I [G7]had   
One [Dm]bad seno[G7]rita made [Dm]use of one [G7]innocent [C]lad [G7]    
But [C]I must keep on running it's too late to turn back
I'm wanted [C7]in Tucson I'm [F]told [C]    [G7]    
Yeah and [Dm]things'll blow [G7]over on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico [G7]    

Two [C]Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't [G7]say   
Let me [Dm]ride on the [G7]back of a [Dm]flatbed half-[G7]loaded with [C]hay [G7]    
Down [C]through Durango Palima Palmira
Then [C7]in the Manza[F]nio [C]    [G7]    
Where I [Dm]slept in the [G7]sunshine on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico [G7]    

After[C] one long siesta I came wide awake in the [G7]night
I was [Dm]startled by [G7]someone who [Dm]shadowed the [G7]pale moon[C]light[G7]    
My [C]new-found companion one young senorita
Who offered a [C7]broken [F]hello [C]    [G7]    
To the [Dm]gringo she [G7]found on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico [G7]    

She [C]spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never [G7]return
For her [Dm]Mexican [G7]husband she [Dm]really had [G7]no great [C]concern[G7]    
Cause [C]she loved the gringo my red hair and lingo
That's all [C7]I needed to [F]know [C]    [G7]    

Yeah [Dm]I found what I [G7]needed on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico [G7]    
Yeah [C]she loved the gringo my red hair and lingo
That's all I [C7]needed to [F]know ha [C]ha   [G7]    
Yeah [Dm]I found what I [G7]needed on the [Dm]seashores [G7]of old [C]Mexico

I left out of Tucson with no destination in mind
I was running from trouble and the jail-term the Judge had in mind
And the border meant freedom a new life 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 lost all the money I had
One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad
But I must keep on running it's too late to turn back
I'm wanted in Tucson I'm told
Yeah and things'll 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 Palima Palmira
Then in the Manzanio
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
Cause 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 I needed to know ha ha
Yeah I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico
