Out In New Mexico
Written and recorded by Johnny Horton

C G7 C
It was in the town of Griffin in the year of '83

It was there an old cow-puncher stepped up and said to me

How do you do young fellow and how would you like to go
G7 C
And spend a pleasant summer out in New Mexico

G7 C
I'll furnish you good wages your transportation too

If you will but go with me one summer season's through

But if you grow homesick and back to Griffin go
G7 C
I'll furnish you no horses from the hills of Mexico

G7 C
Well we left the town of Griffin in the merry month of May

When everything seemed lovely and everything seemed gay

With saddles on our horses marching onward we did go
G7 C
Until we reached Old Boggy out in New Mexico

G7 C
It was there our pleasures ended and our troubles they began

Oh the first hailstorm came on us oh how those cattle ran

Through all kinds of thorns and thistles the cowboys had to go
G7 C
While the Indians watched upon us out in New Mexico

G7 C
And when the drive was over the rider would not pay

To all you good-lookin' people this much I have to say

Go back to your friends and loved ones tell others not to go
G7 C
To the God-forsaken country they call New Mexico
