Cross the Brazos at Waco    
recorded by Billy Walker [3/4 time]
written by Kay Arnold
 
C
On the Chisolm Trail it was midnight
G7
Carmella was strong on his mind

Because of the life he had chosen
C
Carmella had left him behind


Too long he had been El Bandito
C7 F
Carmella had left him alone
C
But today someone brought a message
G7 C
She had been seen in old San Antone

F
Cross the Brazos at Waco

Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
C
Cross the Brazos at Waco
G7 C
I'm safe when I reach San Antone

G7 C
tag: I'm safe when I reach San Antone


He glanced back over his shoulder
G7
The posse was nowhere in sight

He'd sent for Carmella to meet him
C
On the banks of the Brazos tonight


She was waiting and he kept the promise
C7 F
He'd made such a long time ago
C
As he dropped the guns that she hated
G7 C
In the muddy Brazos below

repeat #3

Then the night came alive with gunfire
G7
He knew that at last he'd been found

As the Rangers badge shone brightly
C
El Bandito lay on the ground


Carmella knew he was dying
C7 F
That all of her dreams were in vain
C
As she kissed his lips for the last time
G7 C
She heard him whisper again

repeat #3
