Song Meaning
Verse 1
South of the border, down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love, when the stars above, came out to play
And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way
Verse 2
She was a picture, in old Spanish lace
Just for a tender while, I kissed a smile upon her face
'Cause it was fiesta, and we were so gay
South of the border, Mexico way
Verse 3
Then she sight as she whispered mañana
Never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as a whispered mañana
'Cause our tomorrow never came
Verse 4
South of the border, I jumped back one day
There in a veil of white, by the candle light, she knelt to pray
The mission bells told me that I musn't stay
South of the border, Mexico way
Verse 5
The mission bells told me (ding dong) that I must not stay
Stay south of the border, down Mexico way
