South Of The Border
Chuck Berry Lyrics


Kennedy-Carr

South of the border - down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love, where the 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 a smile - upon her face
'Cause it was fiesta - and we were so gay
South of the border - Mexico way

Then she smiled as she whispered "manjanna"
Never dreaming that we were parting
Then I lied as a whispered "manjanna"
'Cause our tomorrow never came

South of the border - I jumped back one day
There in a veil of white, by the candle light - she knelt to pray
The mission bells told me (ding-dong) - that I musn't stay
South of the border - Mexico way

I'm a travelling salesman
I travel over the world
And I leave my wife at home
Trusting she'll be a good little girl
And we have a roamer
And our family
And here is the story
Of what that louse did to me

That louse of a roamer
From New Mexico way
No doubt that jerk
From Albuquerque
He's in dat same mood today
What he did to my fiancée
While I was away
South of her border
Down Mexico way

When I came home
The little bambino was crying
And I think I heard
It murmur so tenderly
Then I think I heard it say
Manana
And, folks, you can see
It ain't one drop of Spanish in me

South of the border
I rode back one day
And I shot him right between
His Rio Grande and his Santa Fe
There's one thing I know now
Oh, he'll never play
South of her border
Down Mexico way.

Shot him right between his rio grande and his Santa Fe.
One thing I know now
He'll never play
South of her border
Down in Mexico bay.
