STEVE EARLE
"Ain't No God In Mexico"

Down the road a ways I heard say a new day's comin' on
Where the woman folks are friendly and the law leaves you alone
I'll believe it when I see it but I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me just keep on talkin', I'm just looking for my hat

Ain't no God in Mexico, ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man
If I had never seen the sunshine, hell, I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track guess I'd been a train

Me and Louise Higginbotham used to chase across the yard
Back in 1947 that's when more than times were hard
Pity me I didn't see the line in time and like a fool
In front of God and everybody I politely blew my cool

Ain't no God in Mexico, ain't no comfort in the can
When your down in Matamoros gettin' busted by the man
If I had not seen the sunshine I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track guess I'd been a train

Ain't no God in Mexico, ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man
If I had never seen the sunshine then I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track guess I'd been a train
