Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers — Americano! lyrics

-Verse-
Scorpian sting
I hear the mission bells ring
Another night of runnin' is another day
I don't dance the hangmans swing
All roads lead back to Tucson
Pray Maria, I don't find the noose on
La Policia's askin' questions
Say you don't know nothin'
And you ain't seen a thing

"Ave Maria!"
I pray,
"Ave Maria!"
I pray!

-Bridge-
They say the blood is on my hands
'Cause I put down the money
And I made up the plan

-Chorus-
Blue eyes
White lies
Staight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
Americano!

-Verse-
Maria these things I do
Every night they cut me in two
It's in my blood to live for the kill
But God only knows
That I want to stay and love you
Full moon is on the rise
Patron saint of love and lies
The payoffs and the alibis
Shotgun shells and four-wheel drives

"Ave Maria!"
I pray,
"Ave Maria!"
I pray!

-Bridge-
They're gonna find me guilt as a trigger man
'Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

-Chorus-
Blue eyes
White lies
Staight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
Americano!

"Ave Maria!"
I pray,
"Ave Maria!"
I pray!

They say the blood is on my hands
'Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

-Chorus-
Blue eyes
White lies
Staight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
Americano!
