All the sad killings in the border towns of Mexico, all in the name of greed. A horrible vicious circle.

Matamoros, tus hijos e i hijas
Matamoros, tus padres y madres
Matamoros, tu tiempo biene y se ba
Matamoros, un dia ellos regresaran
Matamoros, mientras tanto,
lloremos por Sus almas


Matamoros - Melody Justine J. Hall
Lyrics and music Gerald Duchene

Verse 1
In this town times mournful saddened cry
The bodies all lifeless and covered in lye
Nameless and blameless in the name of crime

From the crib to the grave man is chained
From birth to death their fate is ordained
From birth to a gasp in life's cradled arm
Matamoros must do them no more harm

Verse 2
In this town where life is cheapened by lies
The murder of so many with no goodbyes
All life so hopeless and worthless and trite
All the schemers, they have all the might

From the cradle to the grave man is chained
From birth to death all their fate is ordained
From breath to gasp in all of life's cradled arms
