The Blue Dollar

Got me a man in Buenos Aires,
Thirsty for the Blue Dollar
Every dime, that I make,
He can stretch a whole lot further.

Mama can you see me now?

Found me in chica in the mountains in the south
She's good with her hands, her hips, she is good with her mouth
I promise her a passport, and a blue eyed son,
A swing, a fence, a front porch, a house in Washington.

Mama can you see me now?
Mama are you proud?

Free shots and cheap cocaine,
They all kiss me on the mouth, say they're happy that I came.
No passport, no front porch, no blue eyed son,
Just another hero from the north, full of vinegar and come.

Mama can you see me now?
Mama are you proud?

I don't blame her much, I blame her a lot.
Got sick of my drinking, and my talk, talk, talk.
Still, I got me a man in Buenos Aires
Thirsty for the blue dollar.
