Out in Tia Juana where the man I love has gone,
Out in old Tia Juana, where the man I love has gone,
There's banjos a-playin', dancers swayin', till the early morn.

All night long a-weepin', weepin' just to hear some news,
All night long a-weepin', weepin' just to hear some news,
Weepin' for Tia Juana man, just keeps me weepin' with the blues.

Tia Juana is a place where you have a lovely time,
Tia Juana is a place where you have some good old times,
Riding all the ponies except Tia Juana pony I call mine.

Oh, I heard a mighty rumbling, all the way to San Juan,
Oh, I heard a mighty rumbling, all the way to San Juan,
Wanted Tia Juana, I got the blues for my Tia Juana man.

I can't keep from cryin' when I see that westbound train,
I can't keep from cryin' when I see that westbound train,
Blues for my Tia Juana man are driving me insane!
