Filmed acoustic performance

She took off her stockings, I held them to my face
She had your ankles, I felt filled with grace
"Two hundred dollars straight in,
Two-fifty up the ass," she smiled and said
She unbuckled my belt
And sat in front of me on the bed
She said, "Honey how's that feel? Baby you let me know"*
My eyes drifted out the window, down to the road below

I felt my stomach tighten, the sun bloodied the sky
And sliced through the hotel blinds, I closed my eyes
Sunlight on the Amatitlan, sunlight streaming thru your hair
In the Valle de dos Rios, smell of mock orange filled the air
We rode with the vaqueros, down into cool rivers of green
I was sure the work and that smile coming out 'neath your hat
Was all I'd ever need
Somehow all you ever need's, never really quite enough you know
You and I, Maria, we learned it's so

She slipped me out of her mouth, "You're ready," she said
She took off her bra and panties*
Crawled over me on the bed,
She poured me another whisky,
Said, "Here's to the best you ever had."
We laughed and made a toast
It wasn't the best I ever had
Not even close
