Verse 4: (Lyrics) I hid in the mountains south of Mazulblan Where cool spring mountain waters meet the warm pacific sun I pray all the miles I've traveled and all the sins I've bared Burn away like morning fog and vanish in the air Chorus 4: (Lyrics) Miles beyond the border now But many miles to go My new life is waiting In old Mexico My new life is waiting In old Mexico
