OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across the ring now
You turn and chain them home again
Join hands, circle to the left
Allemande left the corner and weave the ring
Blame it on Mexico if you need a reason
Dosado the pretty little girl and you promenade on home
Blame it on Mexico, she's the reason
I'm falling in love again for my last time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade go 1/2 way
Lead to the right and circle to a line
Go forward up and back, then a right & left thru
You pass thru and wheel and deal in time
Swing thru in the middle and you turn thru
Swing and whirl the corner girl and promenade them home
Blame it on Mexico, she's the reason
I'm falling in love again for my last time

Blame It On Mexico
 
 

In a bar in Acuna called Ma Crosby's I found myself not feeling any pain
I told a 'Frisco girl I'd come for freedom, she said she'd only come to catch a train
We struck up some idle conversation, traded all the troubles on our minds
One thing led to another in the evening and I fell in love again for my last time

Chorus:
Blame it on Mexico if you need a reason
Say too much guitar music, tequila, salt and lime
Blame it on Mexico, but she's the reason
That I fell in love again for my last time

Daylight dawned and found me in Del Rio
In a run-down motel room as dark as hell
I felt all the pains of a morning after
And all alone as far as I could tell

Why she left I have no way of knowing
I guess she caught her train and that's a crime
She took everything I ever wanted
And I fell in love again for my last time

Chorus

Lyrics by Darrell Staedtler.
Recorded by George Strait.
