"I Don't Think I'll Go To Mexico"
Written & Performed by: Tommy Alverson
From the CD "Me On The Jukebox"
Submitted by:  Wes Wilson (wesjenn3@airmail.net)

I don't think I'll go, cross the border into Mexico
I'm gonna stay right here by my old campfire.
Just me and my old guitar, underneath Terlingua stars
I'm gonna sit right here all night,
and watch the old sunrise.

Well I've been pickin' with my friends
but it seems like they've all turned in.
I can't make myself go, you know the fire's just right.
My old guitar sounds so good,
you know they say it's all in the wood.
But I think it just might be the Terlingua quiet, it's so quiet.

(Repeat Chorus, then instrumental break-same chords.)

I ain't in no shape to drive,
I might not make it back alive.
Besides I'm having way too much fun here on this side.
Tell Jose I said "Buenos Dios",
Maybe next year he'll get to see us.
We'll have a cold beer or two and stay a little while.

(Repeat Chorus 3 times with slight variations on the words)
