Did ya hear it
Yeah you know i heard it
It’s tragic
Yeah you know it’s tragic
Who would do it
I don’t know who would do it
Where ya goin’
I think it’s time to leave

I know, i’ll just take it slow
Relax, in old mexico

Shot a gamblin’ man up in reno
Now smokin’ marijuana down in manticino x2

Call the sheriff
Forget about the sheriff
Call the posse
Forget about the posse
Where’s he headed
Deep in mexicali
Gonna hang you
I’m never gonna hang

I know, i’ll just take it slow
Relax, in old mexico

Shot a gamblin’ man up in reno
Now smokin’ marijuana down in manticino x4
