Song Meaning
Verse 1
Down the road a ways, I heard say there's a new day comin' on
Where the women folks are friendly and the law leaves you alone
I'll believe it when I see it but I haven't seen it yet
Don't mind me just keep on talkin', I'm just looking for my hat
Verse 2
Ain't no god in Mexico
Ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man
If I had not seen the sunshine, hell, I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track, guess I'd a-been a train
Verse 3
Me and Louise Higginbotham used to chase across the yard
Back in 1947, that's when more than times were hard
Pity me I didn't see the line in time and like a fool
In front of god and everybody, I politely blew my cool
Verse 4
Ain't no god in Mexico
Ain't no comfort in the can
When you're down in Matamoros gettin' busted by the man
If I had not seen the sunshine, I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track, guess I'd a-been a train
Verse 5
Ain't no god in Mexico
Ain't no way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes a fool out of a man
If I had not seen the sunshine, hell, I would not cuss the rain
If my feet would fit a railroad track, guess I'd a-been a train
