about

This is the "radio edit" of "Juanita" – it has no bleed over from the end of "Don't Get So Heavy" (which precedes it on the album).

lyrics

I cracked the Sunday dawn
With a Leonard Cohen song
As I waltzed the wood floor I had nothing on
except

Juanita
Stranger and darker than the other girls
Juanita
Top of a missionary world

Got medicine for the light
In case the future gets too bright
A lone mariachi's looking for a fight
He cries

Juanita
Stranger and darker than the other girls
Juanita
Stranger than love

Fighting for the vagrant cause
From a barroom in La Paz
Now she sells sea shells, guns and monkey paws

Oh Juanita...
