Mexican Divorce Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce
Verse 2
Down below El Paso lies Juarez
Mexico is different, like a travel folder says
Cross the Rio Grande and you will find
An old adobe house
Where you leave your past behind
Verse 3
One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time for you to get a Mexican divorce
Verse 4
As I came into this lonely house last night
I looked at all my windows but I couldn't find one light
I found you on that road to Mexico
And now, my love, I beg
Please, oh, please, don't go
Verse 5
One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce
Verse 6
Finding love takes so long
Walking out, well, must be wrong
It's a sin for us to get a Mexican divorce
Verse 7
One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
It's a sin for you to get a Mexican divorce
