Back then his hair came down past his nose
Barely washed and never combed
Dressed in a T-shirt that read Conklin Bail Bonds
He stole from his mothers purse $300
And from her new boyfriend $200 more
He sold all his records and his shotgun
And took a bus to Nogales, Mexico
He was 15 years old

For weeks he walked the streets of border Mexico
He bought a leather belt and a cowboy hat
He bought a ring with a horse on it even though
The only horses he'd ever seen were in
A parking lot or on TV
He met an old American lady there who said
She was scared to drive her car, and would pay him
If he drove her to the Sea Of Cortez
SO they drove at night to escape the heat
But he was young and he fell asleep
When he woke he had rolled her car and she lay dead
So he grabbed his cowboy hat, and he grabbed her purse
And he walked towards the sea, because he'd never seen
Any amount of water worth mentioning or of importance to anyone
