Lyrics:
Laid back in an old saloon, with a peso in my hand,
Watchin # flies and children on the street,
And I catch a glimpse of black-eyed girls who giggle when I smile,
There # s a little boy who wants to shine my feet.

And it # s three days ride from Bakersfield and I don # t know why I came.
I guess I came to keep from payin # dues.
So instead I # ve got a bottle and a girl who # s just fourteen,
And a damn good case of the Mexicali Blues. Yeh!

Is there anything a man don # t stand to lose,
When the devil wants to take it all away?
Cherish well your thoughts, and keep a tight grip on your booze,
Cause thinkin # and drinkin # are all I have today.

She said her name was Billy Jean and she was fresh in town.
I didn # t know a stage line ran from Hell.
She had raven hair, a ruffled dress, a necklace made of gold,
All the French perfume you # d care to smell.

She took me up into her room and whispered in my ear,
"Go on, my friend, do anything you choose."
Now I # m payin # for those happy hours I spent there in her arms,
With a lifetime # s worth of the Mexicali Blues.

Is there anything a man don # t stand to lose,
When the devil wants to take it all away?
Cherish well your thoughts, and keep a tight grip on your booze
Cause thinkin # and drinkin # are all I have today.

And then a man rode into town, some thought he was the law.
Billy Jean was waitin # when he came.
She told me he would take her, if I didn # t use my gun,
I # d have no one but myself to blame.

I went down to those dusty streets, blood was on my mind.
I guess that stranger hadn # t heard the news
Cause I shot first and killed him, Lord, he didn # t even draw
And he made me trade the gallows for the Mexicali Blues.

Is there anything a man don # t stand to lose
When he lets a woman hold him in her hands?
He just might find himself out there on horseback in the dark
Just ridin # and runnin # across those desert sands.
