Ain't No God in Mexico  Waylon Jennings


***************** AIN'T GOD IN MEXICO ******************
written by Billy Joe Shaver
performed by Waylon Jennings.
Verse 1:
D[D]own the road a ways i've heard said a n[E]ew day's coming on
Where the w[A]omen folks are friendly and the l[D]aw leaves you alone
I'll believe it when i see it and i h[E]aven't seen it yet
Don't mind [B]me just keep on talking i'm just l[E]ooking for my hat
Chorus 1:
There ai[A]n't no God in Mexico,ain't no [E]way to understand
How that border crossing feeling makes afool out of a m[A]an
If i'd never felt the sunshine then i w[E]ould not curse the rain
If my feet could fit a railroad track,i guess i'd been a tr[A]ain
Verse 2:
M[D]e and Louise Higgins-Botham used to ch[E]ase across the yard
Back in 1[A]947 that's when mo[D]re than times were hard
Well pity me i didn't find the line in t[E]ime like a fool
In front of G[B]od and everybody i pol[E]itely blew my cool
Chorus 2:
Ain't no G[A]od in Mexico,ain't no c[E]omfort in the king
When you're down in Madamoris getting busted by the m[A]an
If i'd never felt the sunshine,Hell i w[E]ould not curse the rain
If i hadn't been railroaded well i guess i'd been a tr[A]ain
