lyrics

I’ve got these two gold dollars in my pocket
Since I left Texas
Joined up with irregular army
But I think we’re just bandits
Killed a man in a small town saloon
With nothing but my fist
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
But the devil is where the boot fits

We lost a man in Sonora
He was the closest thing to a friend of mine
Stealing food from some old caballeros
While pushing south along the borderline
We were fighting for land and money
and our country if it fit
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
But the devil is where the boot fits

We had nothing to lose
You used poor boys to fight a war
Thats what rich people do
And we had nothing to prove
But you made us think that we did
That we needed this
Now we’re fighting for what nobody sees
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
But the devil will do as he please

We were just ten miles out
from the Rio Grande
When I fired my 36 carbine
and my captain fell to the sand
We were fighting for land and money
and to get it we had to live
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
But loyalty is where the money is

We had nothing to lose
You used poor boys to fight a war
Thats what rich people do
And we had nothing to prove
But you made us think that we did
That we needed this
Now we’re fighting for what nobody sees
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
But the devil will do as he please
They say there ain’t no God in Mexico
So get up off your knees
