Billy Joe Shaver — Ain't No God In Mexico lyrics

Down the road a ways I've heard said
A new day's coming on
Where the women folks are friendly
And the law leaves you alone

I'll believe it when I see it
And I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me just keep on talking
I'm just looking for my hat

There 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'd never felt the sunshine
Hell, I would not curse the rain
If my feet could fit a railroad track
I guess I'd been a train

Me and Louise Higgins Botham
Used to chase across the yard
Back in 1947 that's when
More than times were hard

Well, pity me I didn't find
The line in time 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 kin
When you're down in Madamoris
Gettin' busted by the man

If I'd never felt the sunshine
Hell, I would not curse the rain
If I hadn't been railroaded
Well I guess I'd been a train
