Don't Sing

An outlaw stand in a peasant land, in every face see Judas
The burden of love is so strange
The stubborn beast and the whisky priest are hiding from the captains.
The burden of love is so plain.
Are they happy to see you, no, you always bring trouble.
Cast a shadow on Mexico - denial doesn't change facts.

Like most I've come when I want things done
Please God don't let that change.
The anguish of love at long range
Should've been a doctor, oh,
Then they can see what they're getting.

Oh no, don't blame Mexico
That's the feast that the whisky priest may yet have to forgo
They ask for more than you bargained for and then they ask for more
Oh no, don't blame Mexico
That's the feast that the whisky priest may yet have to forgo
Rob me of color, make the sound duller, but never go away

Through teeth of sharks the Autumn barks,
and Winter squarely bites me.
Don't ever do this again.
Dawn breaks in the Southern states,
and blindfolded he rests...
The burden of love's last request.
That's the feast that the whisky priest may yet have to forgo

Oh no, don't blame Mexico
They ask for more than you bargained for and then they ask for more
Oh no, don't blame Mexico
That's the feast that the whisky priest may yet have to forgo
They ask for more than you bargained for and then they ask for more
Rob me of color, make the sound duller, but never go away
