"¡Americano!" as written by and R. Fagan L. Alderman....
Scorpions sting
I hear the mission bells ring
Another night of runnin' is another day
I don't dance the hangman's swing
All roads lead back to Tucson
Pray, Maria I don't find the noose on
La Policia's askin' questions
Say you don't know nothin'
And you ain't seen a thing

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They say the blood is on my hands
‘Cause I put down the money
And I made up the plan

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

Maria these things I do
Every night they cut me in two
It's in my blood to live for the kill
But God only knows
That I want to stay and love you
Full moon is on the rise
Patron saint of love and lies
The payoffs and the alibis
Shotgun shells and four-wheel drives

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They gonna find me guilty as a trigger man
‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

I can burn like a wildfire
Disappear like a ghost
A dagger in my cloak
I'm a rich and gracious host
Don't fear my ill repute
The sweetest fruit is stolen fruit
And if you're feelin' dirty, cruel or mean
Let a little more money make your conscience clean

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They say the blood is on my hands
‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

Blue eyes…white lies…straight teeth and a ravenous soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

    General CommentBanditos 10 years later. Our protagonist has a meaner edge, and accepts responsibility for his plans. and their possible legal consequences. A very solid follow up to the playful Banditos. I really enjoy Roger's work, Refreshments, Solo and Peacemakers. Not much of a country fan, but a Roger Fan for sure

    General Commenti also think this is sort of poking fun of just the american life style. blue eyes classic american beauty. white lies well we all lie and claim it was just a little white lie. straight smile people pay money to get braces etc just to straighten teeth and make there appearance better. crooked soul although your beautiful on the exterior with the two characteristics blue eyes and a white smile you're still crooked on the inside. red blood. and green dinero.
