Three Fingers Tequila
Words and Music: Mark David Manders

I had one smooth shot of three fingers tequila
Just to soften up the edge
Two hours later we was mixing margaritas
And throwing caution to the wind
Singing, “Oh no, here we go again.”
Someone stole my keys one night in Mexico
And I was stranded there in Boy’s Town with nowhere left to go
So I stumbled into this bar, and I sat down in the back
When out of the blue she appeared like an angel dressed in black
Now she said her name was Alma, at least that’s the one she used
And she knew of a place that did not water down their booze
So we slipped out the back door, she led the way
Down the alley to an eight by twelve apartment where she stayed
When the sun comes up in Mexico it does not make a sound
I was recovering on the patio when Miss Alma came around
I could have called a locksmith, been on my way
But she said, “More” with just one smile so I stayed another day
Repeat Chorus
