West Texas Love Story

lyrics

Well Hi Ho Rita, my senorita, standing outside the grocery store. She had a hard time, just trying to make a dime, she caught my eye and I wanted some more.

My first word was cotton, hers was algodon, we grew up doing the same thing but her daddy swam the Rio. I don't know what she ever saw in me, but boy I tell ya what her kisses are so sweet. (repeat chorus)

Well there I was a-grocery shopping off of highway 114, replenishing my month's supply of hard liquor and saltines. She was selling peaches, and I'd been a long time alone. Well I bought every peach from that woman and took 'em all back home. (repeat chorus)

Last year Becky left me, some hombre out in Reno, she stole my car and broke my heart, but I still wear my ring though. Rita is a Mexican, I'm gone make her a Texan, saddle her up with this ole gringo.

Well Hi Ho Rita, my senorita, standing outside the grocery store. She had a hard time, just trying to make a dime, but she's mine forever and mi amor.
