"The Seashores of Old Mexico" is a country music song written by Merle Haggard. It was recorded by Hank Snow in 1971, Freddy Weller in 1972, Haggard himself in 1974, and in 1987 Haggard and Willie Nelson recut the song as a duet. Snow's version was a Top Ten hit in Canada, peaking at #6 on the RPM Top Country Tracks charts.
The song is about a young man wanted in Tucson, Arizona. He decides there is a better life for him in Mexico; so he packs up all of his stuff and moves to Mexico. In Mexico he loses all of his money the first night in Mexico playing poker. He then hitches a ride to the beach towns of Mexico where he finds love and lives out the rest of his life.
