From Wikipedia:-
"South of the Border" is a popular song describing a trip to Mexico, written by Jimmy Kennedy and Michael Carr and published in 1939 for the film of the same name starring country star Gene Autry.
In the lyrics, a man looks back with regret and pain for having lied to the woman he can't forget ("...and now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray...") and returned for too late, just as she was preparing for marriage.

The song was a hit in 1939 for Shep Fields, vocal by Hal Derwin. It has been recorded by many artists, but the best-known versions are by Autry and Frank Sinatra (1953). Rockabilly artist Carl Mann recorded the song in October 1959 for Sun Records, which was released on the Phillips International label in 1960. The song was recorded in August 1961 by Patsy Cline for her album Patsy Cline Showcase and appears on Herb Alpert's 1964 album South of the Border.

The Shadows did an instrumental version on their 1962 album Out of the Shadows
