Kevin Costner & Modern West – Down In Nogales lyrics

i heard a spanish melody
drifting along nogales street
in the shadows the accordion man
danced on the keys
with his long brown hands
playin' a song just for you and me
down in nogales

i put a dollar in his empty hat
then we sat on a wall
scared off an old stray cat
together we saw the clouds roll in
from the gulf of mexico
the wind was singing
and the sky was turning black
down in nogales

and in your hand you
were holding a flower you found
on the side of the road you
were twirling it round and around
and i - i was dreaming of you
seeing you smiling and laughing and then
the rain came down

down in nogales the rain fell
on the bright umbrellas and the tombstones
and the statues near the graveyard walls
where the weeds grow and the raven calls
and the tall girl talking
in the long blue dress on her cell phone
down in nogales
