WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO

 

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO

ACROSS THE RIVER FROM OLD MEXICO

 

THEREíS A BAR ON A BACK STREET, ON THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO

WITH A GIRL, WHOíS EYES ARE AS DARK AS THE NIGHT

I LOVE THIS ANGEL, WHO LIVES OVER THERE

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO, WHERE ANGELS ARE RARE

 

I WANTED TO MARRY MY RAVEN HAIRED BEAUTY

BUT PAPA SAID SHE WASNíT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

SO WE LIVE IN SIN, ON A BACK AVENUE

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO, WHERE SINíS NOTHING NEW

 

Chorus

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO

ACROSS THE RIVER FROM OLD MEXICO

THEY SAY ITíS THE WORST PLACE IN TEXAS TO BE

BUT THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO, IS HEAVEN TO ME

 

SINCE I LEFT EVERYTHING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF LAREDO

AND MARRIED THE GIRL WHOíS AN ANGEL TO ME

IíVE BEEN HAPPY FOR FIVE YEARS AND TWO LITTLE BABIES

GUESS THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO, IS THE RIGHT SIDE FOR ME

 

CHORUS

 

GUESS THE WRONG SIDE OF LAREDO, IS THE RIGHT SIDE FOR ME
