Beer In Mexico

by Kenny Chesney

from the album The Road And The Radio


Lyrics

Starin’ out into the wild blue yonder
So many thoughts to sit and ponder
‘Bout life and love and lack of
And this emptiness in my heart

Too old to be wild and free still
Too young to be over the hill
Should I try to grow up
But who knows where to start

So I just …
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Sun comes up and sun sinks down
And I seen ‘em both in this tourist town
Up for days in a rage
Just tryin’ to search my soul

From the answers and the reasons why
I’m at these crossroads in my life
And I really don’t know
Which way to go

So I just …
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Maybe I’ll settle down, get married
Or stay single and stay free
Which road I travel
Is still a mystery to me

So I’ll just …
Sit right here, have another beer in Mexico
Do my best to waste another day
Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico
Let the warm air melt these blues away

Down in Mexico …

Kenny’s Note

I wrote this song in Cabo at Sammy Hagar’s birthday party. There are a lot of guys going through these same things… looking at their lives, where they think they’re supposed to be, not knowing what to do, wondering if they are missing the boat. This song is about realizing that in the moment, you don’t have to make up your mind. You just need to take a deep breath and open another beer. The answer will come if you let it.
