Billy Joe Shaver

"Ain’t No God in Mexico"

Down the road a ways
I have heard say a new day's comin' on
Where the woman folks are friendly
And the law leaves you alone
Well, I'll believe it when I see it
But I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me just keep on talkin'
I am 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
I would not cuss your rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track
I woulda made one hell of a train

Me and Louise Higginbotham
Use to chase across the yard
Back in 1947
That's when more than times were hard
Well 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 your rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track
I guess I would have been a train
