Just a loud mouth yankee i went down to mexico.
I didn't have much time to spend, about a week or so.
There i lightly took advantage of a girl who loved me so.
But i found myself a-thinkin' when the time had come to go...
Chorus:
What am i doin' hangin' round?
I should be on that train and gone.
I should be ridin' on that train to san antone,
What am i doin' hangin' round?
She took me to the garden just for a little walk.
I didn't know much spanish and there was no time for talk.
Then she told me that she loved me not with words but with a kiss.
And like a fool i kept on thinkin' of a train i could not miss...
Chorus
Well it's been a year or so, and i want to go back again.
And if i get the money, well i'll ride the same old train.
But i guess your chances come but once and boy i sure missed mine.
And still i can't stop thinkin' when i hear some whistle cryin'....
Chorus (repeat)
