Im going back to Mexico
Where the longhorn steers and cactus grow
Where the girls are good day after day
And do not live just for your pay

I made up my mind to change my way 
And quit my crowd that was so gay, 
And leave the girl who promised her hand 
And head down South to the Rio Grande. 

Bur when I hold her in my arms 
I knew she had ten thousand charms 
She promised than she would be true
And wait for me as lovers do 

When I arrived in Mexico 
I wanted my girl, but I could not go 
So I wrote a letter send it to my dear 
But not a word did I ever hear
