Ralph McTell

Ralph McTell - Tequila Sunset

Takes a glass of Tequila to raise up my spirits

When I get down I'm drinking them two at a time

'Til I swear that I feel like a poor drowning sailor

Salt on my lips and my tongue tastes of lime.

Tequila sunset, Tijuana sunrise

Let's put the light back in each other's eyes

And maybe tomorrow if the wheels can roll

We can take the road down south, babe,

Get to Mexico.

I don't wanna hear any sad stories

Hurt glances in mirrors joined in direct lines

I bought her a drink and we made an agreement

"Don't tell me your sad story and I won't tell you mine."

Tequila sunset, Tijuana sunrise

Let's put the light back in each other's eyes

And maybe tomorrow if the wheels can roll

Then take the road down south babe

Get to Mexico.

Whatever we say it is just the booze talking

Skinny dogs howl at a Mexico moon

Kids wear no shoes, dusty streets full of dreams

Aim for the dance floor and maybe they'll play a slow tune

Oh Tequila sunset, Tijuana sunrise

Turquoise and silver stars hung in the skies

And maybe tomorrow the wheels can roll

We can take the road down south babe

Get to Mexico

We will take the road down south,

Get to Mexico.
