my lyricsbox
Baby pulled her blue dress on and walked out in the night
Left one silk stocking danglin' from the bedside light
I sobered up and called her name just before the dawn
I followed footprints through the sand, I knew where she had gone
Down The Rio Grande
Down the Rio Grande.

Pulled out of Albuquerque, must have been past 8:00
Four cups of coffee and I hit the interstate
Rolling through Las Cruces, I thought I saw her car
She always said she'd go someday, she never said how far
Down The Rio Grande, Down The Rio Grande

Maybe she's in Brownsville, she's got some family there
She always talked about the salty Gulf Coast air
Where the river ends, Down The Rio Grande
This song is from the album "Borderland".
