Ballad Of Carlena
Recorded by Billy Walker
Written by Bobby Damron and Jay Johnson

C G7 C
Flashing dark eyes has Carlena laughter so pleasant to hear
G7
The wind in the trees sighed Carlena
C
I've not seen her for almost a year
F G7
I'll cross the river at Waco and then I’ll ride like the wind
C G7 C
I'll change horses at the rancho of Jose Gomez my good friend

G7 C
Ruby red lips has Carlena red as the rose in her hair
G7 C
To be in the arms of Carlena is a pain in my heart I can't bear
F G7
I see the lights of the rancho but who's standing there in the door
C G7 C
Carlena and Jose embracing oh who can you trust anymore

G7 C
I stood in the shadows a moment watched Jose kissing my wife
G7 C
They'll bury him in the morning he'll pay for that kiss with his life
F G7
My hand went quick for my pistol the bullet went straight for his head
C G7 C
But he moved the very same moment and it reached Carlena instead

G7 C
Before Jose knew what had happened one more shot rang out in the dark
G7 C
I knew by the way he was falling the bullet had went to his heart
F G7
Now I got no reason for living so I'll just ride on to Juarez
C G7 C
And I'll drink till I can't remember Carlena and Jose Gomez
