    Lyrics

    I lost my mind ten years ago
    A wanderin' through the world
    Let's cut right to the quick
    I met me a dark-eyed girl
    I was living in El Paso with a woman named Inez
    We'd stare out every evening
    At the hills of old Jaurez

    Inez she'd had a grand daddy who'd owned the dry good store
    He'd climb up on his roof at night and watch Pancho Villa's war
    Jack Pershing come with silver guns
    "For Villa" Granddad said
    But Pancho he went underground in the hills of old Juarez

    Those rollin' smoky hills of old Juarez
    Those god forsaken hills
    They will lure you to your death
    Beware the dusty hills of old Juarez

    "There's gold in them there hillsâ??
    So said a man with a broken tooth
    We could run some cocaine powder
    Right on by the custom's booth
    I was broke I needed money
    To pacify Inez
    So I started doing business in the hills of old Jaurez
    The adrenaline and blood boiled up
    Oh man ain't this a rush
    When you're running through the gunfire
    And the Okatio brush
    My partner was a Tiwa kid straight off of the â??res
    But he ratted me and disappeared in the hills of old Juarez
    A bullet in my back, a bullet in my leg
    Bullets flying by my ears they taught me how to pray
    I prayed I'd reach the river bank where I had left Inez
    But I fell through rock and prickly pear in the hills of old Juarez

    Those rolling smoky hills of old Juarez
    Those god forsaken hills
    They will lure you to your death
    Beware the dusty hills of old Juarez

    The Narco Trafficante boys
    They own the borderline
    Fat cats up in Washington shit and moan and whine
    I'm in Huntsville Prison
    I'm dreaming of Inez
    She's waiting for me there in the hills of old Juarez

    Those rollin' smoky hills of old Juarez
    Those god forsaken hills
    They will lure you to your death
    Beware the dusty hills of old Juarez
    Those god forsaken hills of old Juarez
