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 play and feleena would whirl

Blacker than night were the eyes of feleena
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 feleena, the girl that i loved

So in anger i challenged his right
For the love of this maiden
Down with 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 deed i had done
Many thoughts raced through my mind as i stood there

I had but one chance 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 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 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 alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow a bullet will 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 feleena 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 feleena 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 feleena 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 feleena goodbye
