El Paso

[i] Out in the West Texas town of El Paso

I fell in love with a Mexican girl

Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina

Music would play and Felina would whirl

[i] Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina

Wicked and evil while casting a spell

My love was deep for this Mexican maiden

I was in love but in vain I could tell

[ii] One night a wild young cowboy came in

Wild as the West Texas wind

Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing

With wicked Felina, the girl that I loved

[iii] So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden

Down went his hand for the gun that he wore

My challenge was answered in less than a heartbeat

The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor

[i] Just for a moment I stood there in silence

Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done

Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there

I had but one chance, and that was to run

[ii] Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran

Out where the horses were tied

I caught a good one, it looked like it could run

Up on its back and away I did ride

[iii] Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso

Out to the badlands of New Mexico

[i] Back in El Paso my life would be worthless

Everything's gone in life, nothing is left

It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden

My love is stronger than my fear of death

[ii] I saddled up and away I did go

Riding alone in the dark

Maybe tomorrow a bullet will find me

Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart

I can see Rosa's cantina below

My love is strong and it pushes me onward

Down off the hill to Felina I go

[i] Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys

Off to my left ride a dozen or more

Shouting and shooting, I can't let them catch me

I have to make it to Rosa's back door

[ii] Something is dreadfully wrong, for I feel

A deep burning pain in my side

I'm getting weary, unable to ride

[iii] But my love for Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen

I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle

I feel the bullet go deep in my chest

[i] From out of nowhere Felina has found me

Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side

Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for

One little kiss, then Felina goodbye.
