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
