Cooder, Ry - Mexican Divorce Lyrics




It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce

Down below El Paso lies Juarez
Mexico is different, like a travel folder says
Cross the Rio Grande and you will find
An old adobe house
Where you leave your past behind

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time, for you to get
A Mexican divorce

As I came into this lonely house last night
I looked at all my windows but I couldn't find one light
I found you on that road to Mexico
And now, my love, I beg
Please, oh, please, don't go

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce

Finding love takes so long
Walking out must be wrong
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce

    Ry Cooder just less well known than he should be. Never missed. Everything he's ever done has been great.

    He is beautiful. I recently met Joachim Cooder, his much loved son. He is a lovely person. I can tell that “Papa Coods” (Joachim’s term of endearment) raised him right! And Susie had just as much to do with raising their son. What an awesome family. Joachim’s style is very different, but the talent is definitely in him. I was secretly hoping that Ry would come by the gig, but no. Sigh...

    NICE AND COOL VERSION,
