​New Mexico

This song is by The Boxmasters and appears on the album Modbilly (2009).

I can't go back to New Mexico
There's ghosts at the border shaking chains
The skulls scream for pardon row by row
And I remember their names

I need to get back to New Mexico
Most of my conscience lingers there
It calls out to me, it won't let me go
And I can't bear

The souls that I left in New Mexico
And the holes that they left in my heart
The souls that I left in New Mexico
And the reasons we drifted apart

It's hard to be the law in New Mexico
It's hard to be the man anywhere
The pain that I caused in New Mexico
Gave me a share

Of the souls that I left in New Mexico
And the land that holds blood till this day
Oh, lord, let me die in New Mexico
And share that old ground where they lay
And share that old ground where they lay
