Lyrics

Hardships faced, we’ve been disgraced
Our plans for the land are degraded by menacing hands
But History’s compelling us and telling us to do it all again
As far as I can see, everything that we had believed
Is more true now than ever before
And if the truth be known, we would do it all again
We got low down in Mexico
Seems so far after having been so close
We got low down in Mexico
We lost everything except the things that matter most
Bureaucracy and hypocrisy are contagious
And make us all victims eventually
You can take my life from me but we will do it all again
The seeds of truth will grow, people all will know
Of the visions that we have endeavored to show
And like the river we will flow, we’ll do it all again
We got low down in Mexico
Seems so far after having been so close
We got low down in Mexico
We lost everything except the things that matter most
Faceless men who represent no idea or purpose intend
To prevent revolution though revolution
But we do it all again
And even when I die, hope you wouldn’t cry
For my life has been happily spent in the struggle
And I love you so I do it all again
We got low, oh, oh, oh, down in Mexico
Seems so far after having been so close
We got low down in Mexico
We lost everything except the things that matter most
