lyrics

I was born in San Antone X2
even though I’m a pinche gringo,
I was born in San Antone

When I was younger and feelin so bold
everyone told me to never leave home
I said I’m sorry but I gotta go
but I was born in San Antone

Went to boys town, caught the donkey show
san marcos, midland, and arlington
things got real weird out in Houston
guess it's cuz I was born in San Antone

out in denver, man, they get too stoned
women in portland are just skin and bone
l.a., nashville, new york -- NO
when you were born in San Antone

jumped up to europe by way of a boat
stranded in dublin without no coat
someone asked me where’d you come from, bloak?
I’ve come from San Antone

sped right through paris, prague, and rome
drank wine till my blood boiled my bones
lost my direction, ten times alone
too far from San Antone

I found myself down a deep, dark road
empty pockets and a westbound soul
then I heard somethin on the radio
sounded like San Antone

it had deep blues roots, and a vox organ
a groovy shaker, and a tex mex tone
it sang she’s about a mover and I was gone
gone home to San Antone

we got sir Doug, Flaco, and the sunglos
butthole surfers and bongo Joe
Ozzy Osbourne pissin on the alamo

the Sex Pistols at Randy’s rodeo
Joe "the Godfather Anthony" DJ'in on the radio
Ram opened Taco Land

You might live in Leon Valley, China Grove
South Side, West side, or Olmos
Alamo Heights or Stone Oak

You might know know about Avery Johnson, George Gervin
Tim Duncan, Matt Bonner, or the Admiral
Maybe you were in the Alamo Dome for the Memorial Day Miracle

You might work at USAA and Valero
HEB, Bill Miller, Clear Channel
Frost Bank, Rackspace, Santikos

You might have danced with the devil at El Camaroncito
or maybe you personally know El Rey Feo
or maybe you've been to Hogwild and bought a Morrissey record

You might eat:
lengua, nopalitos, menudo
bacon egg cheese with some PICO
el pastor onions cilantro
over easy on huevos rancheros
carne guisada, queso fresco
Barbacoa y chicharron
cheese enchiladas w/ barracho
flauta, chalupa, special nachos
guacamole salad with my puffy tacos
