"New Mexico" as written by and Billy Joel....
Today I'm living like a rich man, son
Tomorrow morning I could be a bum
It doesn't matter which direction, though
I know a woman in New Mexico

Worse comes to worse I'll get a loan
I don't know how but sometimes I can be strong

And if I don't have a car I'll hitch
I got my thumb and she's a sonofabitch
I'll do my writing on my road guitar
And make a living at a piano bar

Worse comes to worse I'll get along
I don't know how but sometimes I can be strong

Ooo
Lightning and thunder flashed across the roads we drove upon
Ooo
But it's clear skies we're under when we are together, when we sing this song

Worse comes to worse I'll get along
I don't know how but sometimes I can be strong

Fun ain't easy if it ain't free
Too many got a hold on me
But I know something they don't know
I know a woman in New Mexico

Worse comes to worse I'll get a loan
I don't know how but sometimes I can be strong

Oooooooo

    General CommentI think he says, "I'll get a loan," but it could be "I'll get along." You tell me.

    I like this song. Very catchy... :)
