"Beer in Mexico" as written by and Kenneth Chesney....
Starin' out into the wild blue yonder
So many thoughts to sit and ponder
'Bout life and love and lack of
And this emptiness in my heart

Too old to be wild and free still
Too young to be over the hill
Should I try to grow up?
But who knows where to start

[Chorus]
So I just
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Sun comes up and sun sinks down
And I seen 'em both in this tourist town
Up for days in a rage
Just tryin' to search my soul

From the answers and the reasons why
I'm at these crossroads in my life
And I really don't know
Which way to go

So I just
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Maybe I'll settle down, get married
Or stay single and stay free
Which road I travel
Is still a mystery to me

So I just
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Down in Mexico

    General CommentGreatest song ever made. Beer + Mexico = ultimate song idea ever. Why has no one ever thought of this before kenny? BTW the only song he solely wrote on the road and the radio.

    General CommentIt is a great help that I'm not the only one who doesn't know what to do whit this live:
    "Too old to be wild and free still
    Too young to be over the hill
    Should I try to grow up
    But who knows where to start"
    And totally perfect:
    "Do my best to waste another day"

    General CommentDefinitely, the lines about being too old to be wild and free but still too young to be over the hill ring true. I think a lot of us early-thirties types can identify with that.

    General CommentThis is a great tune, but I often wonder whether he is singing about the choice between going 'gay' or going 'straight'. He's obviously at some crossroads in his life between getting married or staying single, but I think he's deciding on whether to come out of the closet or not.
