with


SOUTH OF THE BORDER
 

South of the border down Mexico way
Thatís 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
ĎCause it was fiesta and we were so gay
 South of the border down Mexico way

 

Then she smiled as she whispered manjana
Never dreaming that we were parting,
Then I lied as awhispered 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 that I mustnít stay

South of the border down Mexico way
