"What of Alicia" as written by and Terry Allen....
Well he just turned 17
When he left old Abilene
With his bags…and permission
From the kin
Yeah but things just weren't the same
After his Momma signed her name
And let the navy…take him inahhh but
What of Alicia
Espanola
13 years old
Child of Mexico
An he just turned 19 years
When he learned to face his fears
Of growing up…and acting
Like a man
He just cocked his sailor cap
Stuck his hands down in his lap
Leaned back and stroked…them girls in Japan

ahhh but
What of Alicia
Espanola
15 years old
Child of Mexico
An he just turned 23
When he finally took his final leave
Anchored in the port of
San Diego
Yeah he met this border girl
An he fancied her body's curl
So he married her…then carried her to Colorado

ahhh but
What of Alicia
Espanola
19 years old
an old woman
But out of Mexico
yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi
