"Soy de San Luis" by Los Texmaniacs

Los Texmaniacs reach back into the repertoire of the Texas Tornados to record this popular bilingual song, written by Flaco Jiménez’s father Santiago. It tells the story of a Mexican immigrant from San Luis Potosí who makes his way to San Antonio, finding both work and a girlfriend. The relationship does not work out, as she takes off for Nuevo León, Mexico, and then calls him for money to travel back home.
