Alejandro Escovedo – Texas Is My Mother lyrics
[Verse 1]
I came from a house of troubles
Father was a broken man
Mother rarely spoke a word
Cried with no tears
We came from another land
Where the hills roll like waves of grapes
[?] is a mysterious woman
With eyes as deep as the sea

[Chorus]
I would carry you on my shoulders
'Cross the muddy river
Texas feels like Mexico
She reminds me of my mother

[Verse 2]
We hiked for days against the desert sun
Hear the devil laughing
We are safe
As he drove away
The elders were slowly fading
I'll try to call her often
Please tell her that I love her
I work two jobs, sold my guitar
Pay the coyote dog

[Chorus]
I would carry you on my shoulders
'Cross the muddy river
Texas feels like Mexico
She reminds me of my mother
I would carry you on my shoulders
'Cross the muddy river
Texas feels like Mexico
She reminds me of my mother

[Instrumental]
