LA   TRACALERA

I left Corpus because I didn't pay the rent
In San Antonio I found myself with another bill
Over there in the valley the guys from the company were looking for me
They were throwing sparks because they never found me

At midnight I started out for Laredo
But even there I couldn't find a hideout
In Austin I found out that my parents were looking for me
It had been some time that I didn't even send them five

That is why they now call me Tracalera
All over Texas, they don't let me rest
Let's see if in Houston, I can earn some money
And I'll come to pay them even though it means 
I don't sleep

There in Dallas I found myself a man
"Come out here to Waco, I've got some cash"
But the law was out looking for him
The next day they caught him with contraband

There in Victoria the police stopped me
For a few forged checks and a fine that I owed
I called out to the country,
I want to talk to my sister, but
She's sleeping, and my niece answers the phone

That is why they now call me Tracalera
All over Texas, they don't let me rest
Let's see if in Houston, I can earn some money
And I'll come to pay them even though it means
I don't sleep
