about

New Mexican rockstar
No one knows who you are
Ever since Georgia O’ Keeffe
It’s just Texans and hippies looking for peace
There’s a town about three hours away
Where the food is still good and there’s a place to play
Pour your heart out on the corner stage
For a couple hundred dollars and some IPA

Kinda hard playing rock n’ roll
When your audience is drunks that you already know
A billion stars listening overhead
If only they could pay your rent
You’ve written songs that the world should know
But you’re broke- and always low
Bastard child of a love grown cold
Who the hell could fall for a, gringo

New Mexican rockstar
Mañana vas a ganar
One drop of rain can make the rio grande
Turn the heart of the desert into quicksand
From Taos to El Paso
Silver City up to Raton
I wrote this song for my second home
And all my friends

Take a cue from Ra Paulette
Gotta learn to do more with less
This county’s more elk than residents
More history than dollars spent
But sometimes, there’s a night
Where the sad song flickers by the firelight
In some saloon on the edge of time
And gets you to thinking everything is fine

New Mexican rockstar
Mañana vas a ganar
One drop of rain can make the rio grande
Turn the heart of the desert into pecan
From Taos to El Paso
Silver City up to Raton
Wrote this song for my second home
And all my friends
