"South Of The Border" lyrics

South Of The Border

(With George Strait)

South of the border
Down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love
When stars above
Came out to play
Now as I wander
My thoughts ever stray
South of the border
Down Mexico way

She was a picture
In old Spanish lace
And for a tender while
I kissed the smile
Upon her face
For it was Fiesta
And we were so gay
South of the border
Down Mexico way

Then she sighed as she whispered manana
Never dreaming that we were parting
But I lied as I whispered manana
For that tomorrow never came

South of the border
I rode back one day
There in a veil of white
By candlelight
She knelt to pray
The mission bells told me
That I mustn't stay
South of the border
Down Mexico way

Then she sighed as she whispered manana
Never dreaming that we were parting
But I lied as I whispered manana
For our tomorrow never came

South of the border
I rode back one day
There in a veil of white
By candlelight
She knelt to pray
The mission bells told me
That I mustn't stay
South of the border
Down Mexico way
