I think it is a metaphor for Mammon or chasing the "dollar".   The Ruby is known as the 'King' of gems and so I suppose people leaving home (say Mexico) for a place that might be "paved with gold" (say the USA).

Lived in Mill Valley for a stint- Great room the Sweetwater.
Traveling through Germany in the mid 90's some drunken travelers learned I was from the Bay Area and mentioned a "small club near some mountain" where they had seen John Lee Hooker- "Sweetwater?" I asked. "YES!" they replied. That made for a long train trip much shorter...

Some days I'm really not in the mood for this song. This ain't one of those days! Sounds great!

Always tasteful, excellent- Los Lobops!  This Bear wishes the same for us all, my friends!

We just saw LL at a concert last Saturday and they sound just as good as 25 years ago! Percussionist Enrique Gonzalez is absolutely insane! Louie Pérez is up front with guitar, jarana, mandolin, etc., but took a turn at the drums for old times sake. This a great band that doesn't get the attention it deserves, IMHO, probably because they're clean and solid—and are celebrating their 40th year together because of it! I requested Malaque but they encored with La Bamba. Go figure. (They did do Kiko, though, which was a big crowd pleaser.)

University of Virginia, probably 1985 or so. An unknown band that at the moment had a relatively minor hit 'How Will the Wolf Survive' played in a sunken field on campus, free beer (not from the band), and very little notice. I was hooked. Since then I've seen Los Lobos several times and highly recommend them. Yes, they have lots of original and interesting material, play rockabilly, country, Mexican, Tex-Mex, straight ahead rock, and who know what else. Out of East LA. They are continuing the tradition of the Dead, without really being like the Dead.

Just saw these guys Friday night.  They put on a great show and David Hidalgo's voice is still incredible!
