written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.



Verse 1:
         D                                     E
 	 Down the road a ways i've heard say a new day's comin' on
                   A                                D 
 	 Where the women folks are friendly and the law leaves you alone
                                             E
 	 I'll believe it when i see it and i haven't seen it yet
                   B                               E  
 	 Don't mind me,keep on talking i'm just looking for my hat


Chorus 1:
                  A                             E
 	 Ain't no God in Mexico,ain't no way to understand
                                                                 A
 	 How that border crosswind feelin' makes a fool out of a man
 	  	                               E
 	 If i never felt the sunshine hell i would not curse the rain
                                                                   A
 	 If my feet could fit a railroad track,i guess i'd been a train


Verse 2:
         D                                    E       
 	 Me and Louie,Zig and Bobby  used to chase across the yard
                 A                 D  
 	 Back in 1947 that's when more than times was hard
                                                  E
 	 Pity me i didn't find a line in time and like a fool
                     B                     E      
 	 In front of God and everybody i politely blew my cool


Chorus 2:
                  A                      E   
 	 Ain't no God in Mexico,ain't no comfort in the cane
                                                             A
 	 When you're down in Madamoros gettin' busted by the man
 	                                        E
 	 If i'd never felt the sunshine,hell i would not curse the rain
                                                                   A
 	 If my feet could fit a railroad track i guess i'd been a train
