Lyrics
One hundred and fifty miles from Mexico to LA
Doesn't seem that far but still a world away
Went up to see her husband Tony
Who left some years ago
He wrote to say come be with me
I love and miss you so

And I promise that I'll care for you
Wrote Tony to his wife
Now and for the rest of my life

Tony washes dishes, Maria she sweeps floors
The dreams that they once had
Well they don't have them anymore
Instead she stares up at the ceiling
While most are fast asleep
She thinks about her babies
And prays the lord their souls to keep

We promised that we'd care for them
Said Tony to his wife
Now and for the rest of our lives

One time late at night while looking at the sky
They saw a shooting star burning silver and so bright
Said could this here be a sign
That it's time to go back home
Cause even with you near me
I still feel all alone

We promised that we'd care for one another
Said his wife
Now and for the rest of our lives
