The rains never came I saw my land die
Maria was sleeping when I kissed her goodbye
I couldn't stand the sound of my children cryin' no more
You get hungry you get mad
A man without hope is a man that turns bad
I'll try my luck in texas adios mexico

Wipe away your tears maria
There's a better life for us somewhere
Let me see you smile maria
Close your eyes we're on our way there

My country was a great one once upon a time
I wish I lived when you didn't need borderlines
Somebody came and took the heart of my people away
Now I ain't worried baby come hear what I say
My people gonna rise again fightin' someday
I'll be there to see it I'll be there to welcome them home

Wipe away your tears maria
There's a better life for us somewhere
Let me see you smile maria
Close your eyes we're on our way there

I saw Texas she looked so fine
I met some other people same story as mine
Laughin' and drinkin' waitin' for the sun to go down
We had life in our eyes as we crossed the border line
Shot six good men without tellin' them why
How could anybody steal the only thing a man has left

Wipe away your tears maria
There's a better life for us somewhere
Let me see you smile maria
Close your eyes we're on our way there
