    Lyrics »

Blue bonnets line a hundred miles
Of Texas highway
All the way from Katy
Down, down to San Antonio

The sun's so hot
I feel the steam rise off your chevrolet
If you can stand the heat we'll just keep drivin'
Down to Mexico

I got some money we can make it to Laredo
We'll drop our troubles in the
Mighty Rio Grande
Come on honey you'll be my amigo
We'll build our castle in the Tampico sand

I got the wheel baby, you can have my shoulder
We'll find forever in the stars up above
No need to worry, you can slide on over
We're riding high on a Runaway Love
We're riding high on a Runaway Love

Ten thousand kisses blowing
Thru me like a hurricane
Should have left that one horse town
Along, long time ago
We'll shoot tequila
And watch the sunset over yesterday

Just cross the border baby
We're on cruise control

I know it's crazy
And we might be takin' chances
But goin' nowheres'
Just more than we could stand
You'll be my Romeo
I'll be your spanish dancer
And you can play guitar
In a mariachi band-hey


We can leave it all behind
Ain't no tellin' what we'll find
We ain't got nothing to lose
Lay back and let it ride
And we'll be dancing barefoot by the light on the moon
