El Paso

Marty Robbins



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 flow and Felina would whirl.

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.

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,
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.

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 choice and that was to run.

Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran
Out where the horses were tied.

I caught a good one, it looked liked it could run
Up on it's 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 along in the dark.

Maybe tomorrow a bullit will find me
Tonight nothing is worse than the pain in my heart
And at last here I

Am on the hill over looking El Paso
I can see Rosa's cantina below

My love is strong and it pushes me onward
Down off the hill to Felina 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 back door.

Something is dreadfully 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

Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen
Though I am weary, I can't stop to rest.

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

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.
