Adios

When I walk through the doors of these border town bars
It’s like walkin’ 30 years back in time
There’s dollar beers and hand-rolled smokes
Cowboys tellin’ gringo jokes
And all I need to keep you off my mind

For a while I was king of the Miguel Hidalgo scene
Howlin’ up at the warm Acuna stars
But my new friends drank my wallet dry
And I end up alone each night
Sleepin’ on the floorboard in my car

Adios Rio Grande
Adios my old friend
I’m going back to Texas like an arrow through the wind
So until we meet again, adios

Well I kissed Marisol on the day I left for Del Rio
And I pressed my last twenty in her hand
I had no cure for the tears in her eyes
I told her I’d miss her and I did not lie
But it’s sure good to be headed home again

Adios Rio Grande
Adios my old friend
I’m going back to Texas like an arrow through the wind
So until we meet again, adios

She was midnight, you were morning
She was starlight, you were blue hill country skies
As the road rolls out before me
I see you both between the lines

Adios
Adios
I’m going back to Texas like an arrow through the wind
So until we meet again, adios
