Lyrics

My mamma wrote a letter In it she said: "Son, you better Hurry, get home quick Maria's tired of waitin' And you know she's started datin' And she's got her pick" [CHORUS] Here I am in jail With no one to throw my bail And I just wanna go home And when I do I'll never leave Maria alone

[VERSE] I'm servin' time in Taos, New Mexico And I just wanna go home I'm servin' time in Taos, New Mexico Oooh never felt so alone I just had to buy her things Like pretty clothes and diamond rings And so much more The thing that I just couldn't see Is that she only wanted me Ragged and poor [repeat CHORUS] [repeat VERSE] Those awful nights are long and cold What if she needs someone to hold her while I'm away I can see her by the fire Eatin' cheese and getting high With Don Josť [repeat CHORUS] [repeat VERSE]
