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
