Lyrics:Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican
girl.
Nighttime would
fine me in Rose's Cantina,
Music would play and Felina would whirl.

Black as the
night were the eyes of Felina,
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
My love was strong
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 love.

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 ran through my mind as I stood there;
I had but one chance and
that was to run.

Out through the back door of Rose's I ran, out where the horses
were
tied...
I picked a good one; he looked like he could run,
Up on his back and
away I did ride.

Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso,
Out
thru the badlands of New Mexico.
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless;
Everything's
gone in life nothing is left.

But it's been so long since I've seen the young
maiden,
My love is stronger that 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 as last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso,
I can
see Rose'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've got to make it to
Rose's back door.

Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel a deep burning pain in
my
It's getting harder to stay in the saddle.
I'm getting weary, unable to ride
