I remember the palm trees swaying
Cross the river the sweet music playing, down on the Rio Grande
Out on the levee with the full moon above me
A Mexican lady, lord how she loved me, down on the Rio Grande
Laugh and singing in the warm night air
Loving that woman with the raven hair, we were down on the Rio Grande
Strolling with my lover hand and hand
Lord I'd give anything to be down on the Rio Grande

Endless highways and wide-open spaces
Children smile with their sun burned faces, down on the Rio Grande
All the love that my lady was giving
Was the sweetest part of living, down on the Rio Grande
And if these memories could take me there
I'd be loving my woman with the raven hair; I'd be down on the Rio Grande

Strolling with my lover hand and hand
Lord I'd give anything to be down on the Rio Grande, down on the Rio Grande
Strolling with my lover hand and hand
Lord I'd give anything to be down on the Rio Grande
Down on the Rio Grande
Down on the Rio Grande

    I first time i made love to my mojadita on the banks of the rio grande del rio texas, well she really isn't an illegal... But i joke to her about the way we met. We married soon after and moved down to the valle where we continue to listen and dance to country and tejano music. We enjoy the cool evening breeze and rainy nights we just open the windows lay in bed make crazy mad love and have our refreshments (dos xx) and a hot pizza and thank god for our many blessing. I thank god for my wonderful woman... Maria, te sigo amando para siempre.
