The road to ensenada Lyrics

The road to ensenada by Lyle Lovett  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The road to ensenada As I lay sick and broken
Viva Mexico
My eyes just won't stay open
And I dream a dream of home
I dream a dream of home

Where there's coffee on the table
And kindness in your hands
Honey I'll help you when I'm able
But right now I'm feelin' bad...
Right now I'm feelin' bad

Listen to your heart that beats
And follow it with both your feet
And as you walk and as you breathe
You ain't no friend of me...
You ain't no friend of me

The road to Ensenada
Is plenty wide and fast
If you head south from Tijuana
I'll see you at last...
I'll see you at last

But my eyes they open slowly
And look around the room
The old man he seems worried
And their ain't no sign of you...
There ain't no sign of you

Listen to your heart that beats
And follow it with both your feet
And as you walk and as you breathe
You ain't no friend of me...
You ain't no friend of me

You can offer to the righteous
The good that you have won
But down here among the unclean
Your good work just comes undone...
Your good work just comes undone

The sisters at the borderline
They're holding out their hands
They're begging me for something Lord
But I don't understand...
I don't understand

So it's adios to Alvero
Tell him to stay between the lines
And if he sees that Gabriella girl
Tell her I'll look her up next time...
Say I'll look her up next time

Because the road to Ensenada
Is plenty wide and fast
And this time through Tijuana
Well it won't be my last...
It won't be my last

Listen to your heart that beats
And follow it with both your feet
And as you walk and as you breathe
You ain't no friend of me
You ain't no friend of me
No you ain't no friend of me
