Well I've been living too close to the Rio Grande
Gotta move it on up to a higher land
Now the river has turned into a flood
And the sun's the color of real blood

Well I got those speakers in Okinawa
But they're too damn heavy for my little boat
So we're rowing to the corner and I don't look back
Driving to her mother's in a U-Haul van

Between the wife and the ex and the Government
Man I never met a dollar that wasn't spent
Now the sun is shinin' on to the East
And it's dark where the river and the highway meet

Man I've been living too close to the Rio Grande
I've been living too close to the Rio Grande
I've been living too close to the Rio Grande
Man I've been living too close to the Rio Grande
