Marty Robbins – El Paso

Marty Robbins El Paso Lyrics

Marty Robbins El Paso Song Lyrics, Marty Robbins El Paso Şarkı Sözleri

Music would play 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 heart-beat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor

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
Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out to the bad-lands 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 may 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 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 bullet 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 and Felina, good-bye
