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
