Isaak, Chris - South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way) Lyrics




South of the border, down Mexico way.
That's where I fell in love where stars above came out to play.
And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way.

She was a picture in old Spanish lace.
Just for a tender while I kissed the smile upon her face.
For it was fiesta, and love had its day
South of the border, down Mexico way.

Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)

Then she sighed as she whispered, "Mañana,"
Never dreaming that we were parting.
And I lied as I whispered, "Mañana,"
For our tomorrow never came.

South of the border, I rode back one day.
There in a veil of white by candlelight, she knelt to pray.
The mission bells told me that I shouldn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way.

Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)

Good-bye, good-bye.

    Baja Sessions is a great album. Chris Isaak is at his best doing covers of covers of covers.

    I've loved this song since it came out over 20 years ago. And it still sounds as smooth and inviting as when I first heard it.
