Waylon Jennings – Ain't No God In Mexico lyrics

Verse 1:
Down the road a ways I've heard said there's a new day coming on
Where the women folk are friendly and the law leaves you alone
I'll believe it when I see it and I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me just keep on talking I'm just looking for my hat

Chorus 1:
There ain't no God in Mexico, ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man
If I hadn't seen the sunshine, I would not cuss the rain
If my feet could've fit a railroad track, I guess I'd been a train

Verse 2:
Me and Louise Higginbotham used to chase across the yard
Back in 1947 that's when more than times were hard
Well pity me I didn't find the line in time and like a fool
In front of God and everybody I politely blew my cool

Chorus 2:
Ain't no God in Mexico, ain't no comfort in the can
When you're down in Matamoras getting busted by the man
If I'd never seen the sunshine, hell I would not cuss the rain
If I hadn't been railroaded well I guess I'd been a train
