Where Do I Go To Surrender

From the cold edge of night
To the dawn’s early light
From sun up to sundown
I’ll lie

In this bed washed with tears
Counting the years
And watchin my life
Pass me by

I remember the day
She went away
The day I lost her sweet love

When she said goodbye
The tears in her eyes
Fell like the stars from above

Where do I go to surrender
I no longer want to be free
Where do I go to surrender
I will surrender to her memory

Shackled and chained
To this ghost that remains
I have no will now to fight

Oh her memory
It will not set me free
She haunts me night after night

I remember the day
She went away
The day I lost her sweet love

When she said goodbye
The tears in her eyes
Fell like the stars from above

Where do I go to surrender
I no longer want to be free
Where do I go to surrender
I will surrender to her memory
I surrender to your memory

Hot Nights In Mexico

It was two-thousand years ago
Way down south in old Mexico
My father long ago
Set sail on the deep blue sea

A serpent in one hand
He spread his wings and
Landed in the sacred place
Beneath the sacred tree

We stood and we looked awhile
And he began to smile
Oh not bad I said
But sadly not for me

He just turned and walked away
With nothing left to say
And he scattered me
From sea to shining sea

I am waiting for the tide
Waiting for the sea to rise
I am waiting for the day
You come to me

Waiting for the southern wind
I am waiting to set sail again
I am patiently waiting to
Manifest my destiny

Hot nights in Mexico
Hot nights in Tijuana
Hot nights in Acapulco
Hot nights in Ensenada
Hot nights in Metsala
Hot nights in El Dorado
Hot nights in Del Rio
But oh so cold in San Diego

Oh my brown eyed baby
My precious lady
Let me take you in my arms
And shelter you from any harm

I am lying on an open flame
Pouring tequila on my shame
I am the only one to blame
Honey will you give me one more chance

I am so brokenhearted
Since the day we parted
Your memory will not let me go
It is slow to burn as virgin coal

I am so broken hearted
Since the day we parted
Your memory will not let me go
It is slow to burn as virgin coal

I am waiting for the tide
Waiting for the sea to rise
I am waiting for the day
You come to me

Waiting for a southern wind
Waiting to set sail again
I am patiently waiting
To manifest my destiny

Hot nights in Mexico
Hot nights in Tijuana
Hot nights in Ruidoso
Hot nights in Acapulco
Hot nights in Metsala
Hot nights in old Monterey
Hot nights in Del Rio
But oh so cold in San Diego


Enjoy Jim!!
