What of Alicia Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, he just turned 17 when he left old Abilene
With his bags and permission from the kin
Yeah but things just weren't the same after his momma
Signed her name and let the navy take him in

Ah but what of Alicia Espanola?
13 years old, child of Mexico

And he just turned 19 years when he learned to
Face his fears of growing up and acting like a man
He just cocked his sailor cap, stuck his hands down in his lap
Leaned back and stroked them girls in Japan

Ah but what of Alicia Espanola?
15 years old, girl of Mexico

And he just turned 23 when he finally took his final leave
Anchored in the port of San Diego
Yeah, he met this border girl and he fancied her body's curl
So he married her, then carried her to Colorado

Ah but what of Alicia Espanola
19 years old, an old woman but out of Mexico
