Senorita

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the late 1980s.

Down in old Mexico
There's just nowhere else to go
For this fugitive soul
I'm in Nogales hanging low

Now it seems [the old]
That nice old man we trusted so
Went and sold his old soul
To the Border Patrol

Chorus
Senorita, senorita
Por que tu mer es mi vida (note 1)
Yor te quero mi guerida
Senorita, senorita

Now every cop in this town
Is trying to hunt me down
I just ran into to hide
Ah but what I found inside

Makes me want to change my life
Makes me want to take a wife
Makes me want to have some kids
Makes me wonder what I did

[chorus]

Makes me want to change my life
Makes me want to take a wife
Makes me want to have some kids
Makes me wonder what I did

[chorus]
Senorita, senorita
Senorita, senorita
Notes
(1) I don't speak Spanish, so this is phonetic nonsense: any hep gratefully received.
