The Kingston Trio

The Tijuana jail (Audio)

We went one day, about a month ago,
to have a little fun in Mexico
We ended up in a gambling spot,
where the liquor flowed and the dice were hot.

So here we are in the Tijuana jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay 'cause we cant't pay
Just sent our mail to the Tijuana jail.

I was shooting dice, raking in the dough (long green)
And then I heard the whistle blow
We started to run when a man in blue
said: Señor, come with me, 'cause I want you.


Just 500 Dollars, and they'll set us free
I couldn't raise a penny if you threatened me
I know 500 don't sound like much
But just try to find somebody to touch.

Chorus (bis)
