What Am I Doing Hanging Around? Lyrics by Michael Martin Murphey

 

What Am I Doing Hanging Around? by Michael Martin Murphey


Just a loud mouth Yankee, I went down to Mexico
I didn't have much time to spend, about a week or so
I lightly took advantage there of a girl who loved me so
I found myself a-thinkin' when my time had come to go

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

She took me to the garden just for a little walk
I didn't know much Spanish and there was no time for talk
She told me that she loved me not with words but with a kiss
I found myself a-thinkin' of some ol' train I could not miss

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

It's been a year or so and I want to go back again
And if I had the money, I'd ride the same old train
But I guess your chances come but once and I sure have missed mine
Until I find myself a-thinkin' when I hear some whistle cryin'

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to Mexico
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
