Written, recorded, and mastered in Laredo, TX!

This song was written about the city of Laredo and the little things that make returning home for the holidays such special time of year for those who grew up on the Texas/Mexican border.

I hope you all enjoy, and Happy Holidays!


Big city life has really got me down,
It’s snowing on the other side of town
I wish the holidays would come around,
And send me back to Laredo
I wish that I can go where I grew up,
Abuelitas in a coffee cup
We’d drive our pickups ‘til we all got stuck,
Another Christmas in Laredo

Menudo boiling in an iron pot,
We’re stealing seconds hope we don’t get caught
Tortillas roasting and the carne’s hot,
Another Christmas in Laredo
Hot tamales in the afternoon,
All our friends are gonna be here soon
With some tequila and a beer or two,
Another Christmas in Laredo

Paesano traffic out on 35,
But I'm here sittiing in a hunting blind
I’ve got Chalu Burger on my mind,
Because I'm down in Laredo
The ranch gets cold, but it won't ever snow.
Mesquite is burning with an orange glow
Lake Casa Blanca is the place to go,
When you’re down in Laredo

I wake up late, and I can’t find my shoes,
Momma’s listening to Pro 8 news
It’s all I need to shake these homesick blues,
Another Christmas in Laredo
The movie theaters are always near.
We don’t get any decent movies here
But I can’t wait for this same time next year,
Another Christmas in Laredo
Okay, I guess I’ll take another beer,
Because Christmas in Laredo
