Marty Robbins – South Of The Border lyrics

South of the border, down Mexico way,
That's where I fell in love
When stars above came out to play,
And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way.

And she sighed as she whispered "manana,"
Never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as I whispered "manana,"
For our tomorrow never came.

South of the border, I rode back one day.
There in a veil of white by candlelight,
She knelt to pray.
The mission bells told me that I mustn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way.
