Iron & Wine Lyrics

4. Jesus The Mexican Boy



Jesus the Mexican boy 
born in a truck on the fourth of July 
gave me a card with a lady naked on the back 
Barefoot at night on the road 
Fireworks blooming above in the sky 
I never knew I was given the best one from the deck 

He never wanted nothing I remember 
Maybe a broken bottle if I had two 
Hanging behind his holy even temper 
Hiding the more unholy things I do 

Jesus the Mexican boy 
Gave me a ride on the back of his bike 
Out to the fair though I welched on a $5 bet 
Drunk on Calliope songs 
We met a home-wrecking carnival girl 
He's never asked for a favor or the money yet 

Jesus the Mexican boy 
Born in a truck on the 4th of July 
I fell in love with his sister unrepentantly 
Fearing he wouldn't approve 
We made a lie that was feeble at best 
Boarded a train bound for Vegas and married secretly 

I never gave him nothing I remember 
Maybe a broken bottle if I had two 
Hanging behind his holy even temper 
Hiding the more unholy things I do 

Jesus the Mexican boy 
Wearing a long desert trip on his tie 
Lo and behold he was standing under the welcome sign 
Naked the Judas in me 
Fell by the tracks but he lifted me high 
Kissing my head like a brother and never asking why
