OCut in the West Texas toDmwn of El Paso I fG7ell in love with a Mexican girlC. NCighttime would find me in RoDmsa's Cantina,Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
FMCusic would play and Felina would whirl. BClack as the night were the eyDmes of Felina,
FWCicked and evil while casting a spell. MCy love was strong for this MeDmxican maiden,
FIC was in love, but in vain I could tell. OFne night a wild young coB♭wboy came in,F wild as the WestB♭ Texas wind.C7.. DC7ashing and daring, a drink he was sharing, WFith wicked Felina, the girl that I love. SGo in aG7n - gerC I challenged his right for thDme love of thisG7 maiden; DCown went his hand for the gun that he wore. MDmy challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat TGhe handsome young stranger lay dead on the flCoor. JDmust for a moment I stood there in silence, SGhocked by the foul evil deed I had doCne. MDmany thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there; IG had but one chance and that was to ruCn. OFut through the back door of RoB♭se's I ranF, out where the horsB♭es were tied.C7.. IC7 picked a good one; he looked like he could run, UFp on his back and away I did ride. JCust as fast as I could froDmm the West Texas town of El Paso, OGut thru the badlands of New MexicoC. BDmack in El Paso my life would be worthless; EGverything's gone in life nothing is leCft. BCut it's been so long since I've seDmen the young maiden, MGy love is stronger that my fear of deCath. IF saddled up and awB♭ay I did go,F riding alonB♭e in the dark.C7.. Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me, TFonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart. ACnd as last here I am on the hill overlookDming El Paso, IG can see Rose's Cantina beClow. MDmy love is strong anGd it pushes me onward, down offC the hill to Felina I go. OCff to my right I see fiDmve mounted cowboys, OGff to my left ride a dozen or moCre. sChouting and shooting; I Dmcan't let them catch me, IG've got to make it to Rose's back doCor. SFomething is dreadfully wrB♭ong for I feeFl a deep burning painB♭ in my side.C7.. It's getting harder to stay in the saddle. IF'm getting weary, unable to ride. BCut my love for Felina is strong and I riDmse where I've fallen; TGhough I am weary, I can't stop to reCst. IC see the white puff of smDmoke from the rifle, IG feel the bullet go deep in my chCest. >CFrom out of nowhere, FDmelina has found me, KGissing my cheek as she knCeels by my side. CCradled by two loving arDmms that I'll die for, OGne little kiss and Felina goCodbye.
