technission Lyr Req: I try you guys every 3 months-Plane/Spain (41) Lyr Add: NEW MEXICO RAIN (Mike Hearne) 06 Jun 02


I doubt this is it, but I haven't posted for a long while and I love to see myself talk, so here's verse one of

NEW MEXICO RAIN

The smoke cuts the lights in this honky-tonk bar
And I'm thinkin' where I'd rather be
Maybe chasin' senoritas in old Mexico
Or standin' at the edge of the sea
If I had the money, I'll tell you, honey
We'd be on the first plane to Spain
But as long as we're here, the answer is clear
We'll dance in the New Mexico rain

I have it on the CD "Diamonds In The Rough" by Bill & Bonnie Hearne, 1997 Warner Brothers
It's a nice song and being written that long ago perhaps it has been recorded by solo female vocalists? Bonnie's harmony is nice on this version. The entire album's nice, with harmonizing appearances by (in order of appearance) Tish Hinojosa, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, Christine Albert, & Mike Hearne.
If you don't have this one, you should. Usual disclaimers. cheers, Michael
