Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers – Americano! Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Scorpions sting
I hear the mission bells ring
Another night of runnin’
Is another day I don’t dance the hangman’s swing
All roads lead back to Tucson
Pray, Maria, I don’t find the noose on
La Policia’s askin’ questions
Say you don’t know nothin’
And you ain’t seen a thing

Ave Maria!
I pray
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They say the blood is on my hands
Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

Maria these things I do
Every night they cut me in two
It’s in my blood to live for the kill
But God only knows that I want to stay and love you
Full moon is on the rise
Patron saint of love and lies
The payoffs and the alibis
Shotgun shells and four-wheel drives

Ave Maria!
I pray
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They gonna find me guilty as a trigger man
Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

I can burn like a wildfire
Disappear like a ghost
A dagger in my cloak
I’m a rich and gracious host
Don’t fear my ill repute
The sweetest fruit
Is stolen fruit
And if you’re feelin’ dirty, cruel or mean
Let a little more money make your conscience clean

Ave Maria!
I pray
Ave Maria!
I pray!

They say the blood is on my hands
Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a ravenous soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!
