This old highway seems so lonesome
when you`re going where you`ve been
and a lonesome song can make you cry
time and time again
if I`d listened to a friend of mine ten
years ago today, I`d have a better job
than what I`ve got today

But the billboards on the highway and the
brake lights on the cars
make me jump out on the highway with my bag and my guitar
if she comes or if she goes it doesn`t matter
anymore cause I`m ridin` my thumb to Mexico

Ridin` my thumb to Mexico
it don`t matter when or how I go
I`m ridin` my thumb til I see her again
I`m ridin my thumb to Mexico

The reason why she left me`s not the reason that I`m here:
I`m a travlin` kind of man, just need a change of atmosphere
if there`s any place I haven`t been at all that`s where I`ll go
so I`m riding my thumb to Mexico

Ridin` my thumb to Mexico
it don`t matter when or how I go
I`m ridin` my thumb til I see her again
I`m ridin my thumb to Mexico

Ridin` my thumb to Mexico
it don`t matter when or how I go
I`m ridin` my thumb til I see her again
I`m ridin my thumb to Mexico
Yes I`m ridin` my thumb to Mexico
