There's a place I've been and I'm goin' back
If I have to walk every mile of track
Back to San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I'm gonna settle down, down in ol' San Antone
Well, I will sell my farm, 'cause I ain't no farmer
The weather's warm, but the gals are warmer
Down in San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I'm gonna settle down, down in ol' San Antone

I don't need no food, just day-gone bread
I'm gonna sleep outside, I won't need no bed
Down in San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I'm gonna settle down, down in ol' San Antone
Well, I'll find me a gal with a pretty face
I'm gonna take her to a real swingin' place
Down in San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I'm gonna settle down, down in ol' San Antone

Well, if you like black hair and a ribbon red
And you wanna live until you're dead
Go to San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I wanna settle down, down in ol' San Antone
Well if you're lookin' for me, you can find me there
Just a-soakin' up the sun on Alamo square
Down in San Antone where the Rio de Rosa flows
I'm gonna settle down, down in ol' San Antone
