One of my all time favorites is HENRY by New Riders o/t Purple Sage.

Every year along about this time it all gets dry
Nothing 'round for love or money bearly gets you high
Henry got his truck and said he'd run to Mexico
See if he could come back home with 29 keys of gold

Now the road to Acapulco is very hard indeed
And it isn't any better if you haven't any weed
Henry's driving hard and fast on twisty mountain roads
50 people back waitin' back at home for Henry's load

Chorus:
And now he's rolling down the mountain going fast,fastfast
And if he blows it this ones gonna be his last
He went to Acapulco to turn the golden key
Henry keep your brakes on for this corner if you please.

Henry got to Mexico and turned his truck around
He's talking with the man who has it growing from the ground
Henry tasted he got wasted, couldn't even see
How he's gonna drive like that is not too clear to me

Chorus

Sunday afternoon Tijuana is a lovely town
The bullfights bring the tourists and their money flowing down
The border guards are much too busy there at at 5 o'clock
Henry's truckin' right on through and hardly even stops

Chorus End

That's it from what's left of my memory. Who say's pot wrecks your memory.
That album also has the wonderful Glendale Train song.
You might be able to find the song with tabs on OLGA at Harmony Central.com
Enjoy, Tom
