Hank Snow - Lyrics


The Singing Ranger, Vol. 3 - Album




El Paso


 
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 Feleena would whirl

Blacker than night were the eyes of Feleena 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

One night a wild young cowboy came in wild as the west Texas wind

Dashing and daring a drink he was sharing with wicked Feleena the girl that I loved

So in danger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden

Down went his hand for the gun that he wore

My challenege was answered in less than a heartbeat

The handsome young strager lay dead on the floor

Just for a moment I stood there in silence shocked by the foul deed I had done

Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there

I had but one chance and that was to run

Out to the backdoor 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

Just as fast as I could from the west Texas town of El Paso

Out to the badlands of New Mexico

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

I saddled up and away I did go riding alone in the dark

Maybe tomorrow a bullet would find me

Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart

And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso I can see Rosa's Cantina below

My love is strong and it pushes me onward down off the hill to Feleena I go

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 backdoor

Something is dreadfuly wrong for I feel a deep burning pain in my side

Though I am trying to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary unable to ride

But my love for Feleena is strong and I rise where I've fallen

Though I am weary I can's stop to rest

I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle I feel the bullet go deep in my chest

From out of nowhere Feleena has found me kissing my cheeks as she kneels by my side

Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for one little kiss then Feleena goodbye
