Babe Ruth - The Mexican






The Mexican Lyrics


Chico Fernandez 
Sleepin' on his guns
Dreams of Santa Anna
Fighting in the sun
Drums so loud from outside
Makes it hard to dream
A bruise 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'
Mexican 

Si├▒orita pining 
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


'The Mexican", written by Alan Shacklock, Originally Recorded by "Babe Ruth'", on their 'First Base' album for Harvest Records EMI, in Abbey Rd Studios, 1972.
