Les Paul – Nuevo Laredo lyrics

Nuevo Laredo
The moon is aglow
Nuevo Laredo
In old Mexico

Nuevo Laredo
In old Mexico
The other there'sas
Were spending their dough

But Reece spent her time
Singin' love songs, you see
And every time he sang a song
He gave a kiss to me

[Repeat chorus]

Nuevo Laredo
The blue Rio Grande
Was bright in the moonlight
As he held my hand

He sang me a love song
The whole lovely night
We kissed and kissed
And kissed and kissed
Until the morning light

[Repeat chorus]

Nuevo Laredo
I found true romance
And with my senior
I sang and I danced

We had a fiesta
From morning 'til night
Then my father called us

Nuevo Laredo
He travels no more
Since my father
Don't darken my door

But each night by moonlight
He's one happy man
You should swim to me
Across the Rio Grande

[Repeat chorus]
