seashores of old mexico

haggard3Country music legend Merle Haggard, 79, died Wednesday.

In the 1970s, the working man’s poet wrote and sang this sentimental corrido about a gringo from Tucson who escapes the law to find peace and love by the Seashores of Old Mexico. The song was Top Ten country music hit for singer George Strait.

R.I.P., Merle.
