El Paso City 
Words and music by Marty Robbins

C
From thirty thousand feet above
F C
The desert floor I see it there below

A city with a legend
F C
The west Texas city of El Paso


Where long ago I heard a song
F C
About a Texas cowboy and a girl

And a little place called Rosa's
G7 C
Where he used to go and watch this beauty whirl


I don't recall who sang the song
F C
But I recall the story that I heard

And as I look down on the city
F C
I remember each and every word


The singer sang about a jealous cowboy
F C
And the way he used a gun

To kill another cowboy
G7 C
Then he had to leave El Paso on the run

C7 F C
El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
G7
The cowboy lived and rode away

But love was strong he couldn't stay
C C7
He rode back just to die in that El Paso sand

F C
El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
G7
I try not to let you cross my mind

But still I find there's just a mystery
C
In the song that I don't understand


My mind is down there somewhere
F C
As I fly above the badlands of New Mexico

I can't explain why I should know
F C
The very trail he rode back to El Paso


Can it be that man can disappear
F C
From life and live another time
G7
And does the mystery deepen cause you think
C
That you yourself lived in that other time


Somewhere in my deepest thoughts
F C
Familiar scenes and memories unfold

These wild and unexplained emotions
F C
That I've had so long but I have never told


Like every time I fly up through the heavens
F C
And I see you there below

I get the feeling sometime
G7 C C7
In another world I lived in El Paso

F C
El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
G7
Could it be that I could be

The cowboy in this mystery
C C7
That died there in that desert sand so long ago

F C
El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e

G7
A voice tells me to go and see

Another voice keeps telling me
C
Maybe death awaits me in El Paso
F
El Paso Cit-y
