Description
Last summer I got this text from Andy, 'its a warm clear night and the moon is only half full'
So I texted back the next line,'somewher in the distance sweet mariachi plays...' and between us we wrote this song. He shoved together some chords and came over today with a vocal. We added the mando. etc.

Lyrics

It was a warm clear night and the moon was only half full.
Somewhere in the distance sweet mariachi plays
Firecrackers blast at the feet of jumping boys and girls
Echoes off the canyon walls of Boquillas.

And Lucinda sings to the stars
And Lucinda sings to the heavens

A faraway galaxy spins it's cosmic hymn
towards her waiting lover as he stands at the Rio Grande.

So far the moon turns a blind eye
Wishing not to disturb the Fates.
Of these two lovers now wrapped
in their embrace.  
That's the way it is in Boquillas.

And Lucinda sings to the stars
And Lucinda sings to the heavens
She makes me lose all sense of time
She makes me lose all sense of time

It's just the way it is on a half-mooned night in Boquillas.
And overhead the fireworks bloom red and blue.

Lucinda
Does have a languid warm night feel, although there seems to be plenty going on n the street below! Clean recording, evocative imagery in the lyrics, relaxed vocal. mandolin suits very well. Might be interesting to hear this 10+ bpm faster, too, for a somewhat different feel. Much enjoyed!

Thanks for the comment
we thought about that ... but we were thinking Robert Earl Keen or Ry Cooder...
The Wiz old gravely voice just sort of set the speed....

You
two grizzled old "guys" wrote a poignant and sweet love ballad about young love. Andy is such a romantic. The mandolin is perfect. Muy dulce. Thank you.

I love the lyrics! And those mandolins are sweet. Nothing plinky about them. Very smooth tone with a lot of wood.

Boquillas
I spent a week in Boquillas one night just got out of high school. We were rafting down the Rio Grande and we camped at the hot springs. It was after dark when we went into sleepy Boquillas. As we walked into town the dogs started barking and the bar opened up. Suddenly there was dancing in the street and the cheap tequila poured like ,well cheap tequila. Our raft was searched the next day by the federales on the US side. It was a warm clear night....

Excellent!
Sounds like a missing track from "Pat Garett and Billy the Kid", only the singing is better than Bob's. The mando is sweet too. And the lyric collab worked very well.
