El Paso

Marty Robbins / Jan Vyčítal / Zelenáči, 1972

    G                  Am
1/ Byla to krása, když já do El Pasa,
       D                   D7          G
   do těch ulic dřevěnejch zase jsem vjel.
                             Am
   Já z koně slez líně, tam proti kantýně,
         D                    D7      G
   kde z oken zvuk honky-tonk piána zněl.

      C
Ref: Ve dveřích mexická dívka stojí
                        G  G7
     a ve vlasech růži má,

     jsou dlouhý večery, když roznáší sherry
                                     C  D  D7
     a ve svých snech jenom mne objímá.
         G                  Am
     Dívka snědé kůže jak prérijní růže
          D                    D7       G
     v žilách žhavou krev mexické noci má.
                      Am
     Růžová kantýna a moje Feleena,
         D               D7        G
     už tolik nocí jen o ní se mi zdá.

2/ Já svý sherry dopil, když na mě osopil
   se chlap, kterej marně měl Feleenu rád.
   Dva výstřely štěkly, já nebyl tak vzteklý
   a snad proto on pad, ale já zůstal stát.

Ref: Ve dveřích...

3/ Hledal jsem spásu, tak zády k El Pasu
   já na cestu rychle se dal jako blesk.
   Dlouho jsem se skrýval jak v doupěti mýval,
   ale po mý Feleeně zmáhal mě stesk.

Ref: Ve dveřích...

4/ Až konečně k ďasu, já vyjel k El Pasu,
   tam ticho jaký jenom na pohřbech maj.
   Pak obláček kouře a po něm ran bouře
   a já stačil říct je: Feleena good bye!

   G                      Am
1/ Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
      D                   D7      G
   I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
                                Am
   Night-time would find me in Rosa's cantina;
    D                      D7
   Music would play and Felina would whirl.

2/ 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.

      C
Chor: One night a wild young cowboy came in,
                              G   G7
      Wild as the West Texas wind.

      Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing
                                            C
      With wicked Felina, the girl that I loved.
       D       D7
      So in anger
          G                           Am
      I Challenged his right for the love of this maiden.
       D                          D7          G
      Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
                                    Am
      My challenge was answered in less than a heart-beat,
           D                           D7           G
      The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.

3/ 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.

Chor: 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 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 bad-lands of New Mexico.

4/ 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.

Chor: 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.

5/ 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.

Chor: 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.

6/ 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.
