    Baby pulled her blue dress on and walked out in the night
    Left one silk stocking danglin' from the bedside light
    I sobered up and called her name just before the dawn
    I followed footprints through the sand, I knew where she had gone
    Down The Rio Grande
    Down the Rio Grande.

    Pulled out of Albuquerque, must have been past 8:00
    Four cups of coffee and I hit the interstate
    Rolling through Las Cruces, I thought I saw her car
    She always said she'd go someday, she never said how far
    Down The Rio Grande, Down The Rio Grande

    Maybe she's in Brownsville, she's got some family there
    She always talked about the salty Gulf Coast air
    Where the river ends, Down The Rio Grande
