The Last Supper
Words and Music: Mark David Manders

I like barbacoa with cilantro and onions
Handmade tortillas and an ice-cold glass of tea
It reminds me of this waitress, her name was Maria
Boys, let me tell you the spell she put on me
And I had one headlight out on that old Chevy truck
When I hit Laredo that night
I just had to see Maria, but I swear to you, Boys
I did not go a’lookin’ for a fight
There was a portrait of Pancho Villa to the right of the mirror
Blush on his face from a Dos Equis sign
Then I saw that stranger holding hands with Maria
Maria lost her smile and I guess I lost my mind
I had one headlight out on that old Chevy truck
When I left Laredo that night
I flew off the handle, but, Boys, please understand
I did not mean to take that stranger’s life
Now time passes slowly when you’re sad and lonely
But word travels fast once a crime goes down
As I headed north toward Austin my thoughts were of Maria
It even crossed my mind to turn that truck around
I had one headlight out on that old Chevy truck
When I reached the roadblock that night
I guess I could have run it, but I knew they’d track me down
So I gave up without a fight
Now you’re all gathered here before me at this little farewell party
And, Boys, let me tell you- there’ll be no more appeals
Tomorrow I’ll have to answer to God, himself, Almighty
But tonight won’t you join me for one final meal
And I’d like barbacoa with cilantro and onions
Handmade tortillas and an ice-cold glass of tea
It reminds me of this waitress, her name was Maria
