Down Into Mexico Lyrics

There was a casino out in Vegas
Had a million dollars on the wall
Got my imagination workin' overtime
I knew I had to have it all
I knew I had to have it all

Sherrie was a dancer, she was a schemer
We came up with a fool proof plan
She was workin' it from the inside
And I was her getaway man
Yeah, I was her getaway man

Takin' it deep down into Mexico
No turnin' back once you go down that road
Just one place for a desperate desperado to go
Deep down into Mexico
Deep down into Mexico

It all went smooth and sweet as honey
We got it all and nobody got hurt
Me and Sherrie, we were countin' our money
When that little gun slid out of her purse
Yeah, that little gun slid out of her purse

That's when she told me 'bout her lover
That's when I knew I was in a terrible mess
She took the blame and he took the money
I took a bullet in my chest
I took a bullet in my chest

Deep down into Mexico
No turnin' back once you go down that road
Just one place for a desperate desperado to go
Is deep down into Mexico
Deep down into Mexico

Deep down into Mexico
Deep down into Mexico

Thoughts & Meanings

My interpretation is that he was deeply in love with Cherrie and he took a chance to bond with her by doing a crime with her. He later finds out that she has another lover and that she used him to get the money and to get back at what happened to her when "she took the blame". Not sure if she actually shot him in the chest or was he hurt so badly by love that it felt like he took a bullet in his chest? Hmmm? but then again, there was a gun that slid out of her purse!
