Doug's notes:

Hi friends,

I love this song. Kevin's lyrics paint a vivid picture of a forsaken fellow who finds himself "south of the border" sitting in a Mexican cantina. As he laments having recently lost the love of his life, his attention turns towards a mysterious senorita.

A great storyline with a surprise twist coupled with a catchy, Latin beat makes this one of Kevin's best!
