Calexico and Jim James perform Bob Dylan’s Goin’ to Acapulco

One of the highlights of “I’m not there”, a wonderful interpretation by Calexico with Jim James (My Morning Jacket) of this Dylan track from Basement Tapes.

A wonderful scene with some rather surreal and fucked up imagery at play!

I’m going down to Rose Marie’s
She never does me wrong.
She puts it to me plain as day
And gives it to me for a song.

It’s a wicked life but what the hell
The stars ain’t falling down.
I’m standing outside the Taj Mahal
I don’t see no one around.

Goin’ to Acapulco
Goin’ on the run.
Goin’ down to see fat gut
Goin’ to have some fun.
Goin’ to have some fun.

Now, whenever I get up
And I ain’t got what I see
I just make it down to Rose Marie’s
‘Bout a quarter after three.

There are worse ways of getting there
And I ain’t complainin’ none.
If the clouds don’t drop and the train don’t stop
I’m bound to meet the sun.

Goin’ to Acapulco
Goin’ on the run.
Goin’ down to see some girl
Goin’ to have some fun.
Goin’ to have some fun.

Now, if someone offers me a joke
I just say no thanks.
I try to tell it like it is
And keep away from pranks.

Well, sometime you know when the well breaks down
I just go pump on it some.
Rose Marie, she likes to go to big places
And just set there waitin’ for me to come.

Goin’ to Acapulco
Goin’ on the run.
Goin’ down to see some girl
Goin’ to have some fun.
Goin’ to have some fun.
