Feleena  
written and recorded by Marty Robbins
[3/4 time]

C
Out in New Mexico many long years ago
G7
There in a shack on the desert one night in a storm

Amid streaks of lightning and loud desert thunder
C
To a young Mexican couple a baby was born


Just as the baby cried thunder and lightning died
C7 F
Moon gave it's light to the world and the stars did the same
C
Mother and Father both proud of the daughter
G7 C
That heaven had sent them Feleena was this baby's name


When she was seventeen bothered by crazy dreams
G7
She ran away from the shack and left them to roam

Father and mother both asked one another
C
What made her run away what made Feleena leave home


Tired of the desert nights fatherly grieved to strife
C7 F
She ran away late one night in the moon's golden gleam
C
She didn't know where she'd go but she'd get there
G7 C
And she would find happiness if she would follow her dream


After she ran away she went to Santa Fe
G7
And in the year that she stayed there she learned about life

In just a little while she learned that with a smile
C
She could have pretty clothes she could be any man's wife


Rich men romanced her they dined and they danced her
C7 F
She understood men and she treated them all just the same
C
A form that was fine and rare dark shining glossy hair
G7 C
Lovely to look at Feleena was this woman's name


Restless in Santa Fe she had to get away
G7
To any town where the lights had a much brighter glow

One cowboy mentioned the town of El Paso
C
They never stopped dancing and money like whiskey did flow


She bought a one-way a ticket from Santa Fe
C7 F
Three days and nights on a stage with a rest now and then
C
She didn't mind that she knew she would find that
G7 C
Her new life would be more exciting than where she had been


The stage made it's last stop up there on the mountain top
G7
To let her see all of the lights at the foot of the hill

Her world was brighter and deep down inside her
C
An uncontrolled beating her young heart just wouldn't be still


She got a hotel a room at the Lily Belle
C7 F
Quickly she changed to a form-fitting black satin dress
C
Every man stopped to stare at this form fine and rare
G7 C
Even the women remarked of the charm she possessed


Dancing and laughter was what she was after
G7
And Rosa's Cantina had lights with love in the gleam

That's what she hunted and that's what she wanted
C
Rosa's was one place a nice girl would never be seen


It was the same way it was back in Santa Fe
C7 F
Men would make fools of themselves at the thought of romance
C
Rosa took heed of the place was in need of
G7 C
This kind of excitement so she paid Feleena to dance


A year passed and maybe more and then through the swinging doors
G7
Came a young cowboy so tall and so handsomely dressed

This one was new in town hadn't been seen around
C
He was so different he wasn't like all of the rest


Feleena danced close to him then threw a rose to him
C7 F
Quickly he walked to her table and there he sat down
C
And in a day or so wherever folks would go
G7 C
They'd see this young cowboy showing Feelena the town


Six weeks he went with her each minute spent with her
G7
But he was insanely jealous of glances she'd give

Inside he was a-hurting from all of her flirting
C
That was her nature and that was the way that she lived


She flirted one night it started a gun-fight
C7 F
And after the smoke cleared away on the floor lay a man
C
Feleena's young lover had shot down another
G7 C
And he had to leave there so out through the back door he ran


The next day at five o'clock she heard a rifle shot
G7
Quickly she ran to the door that was facing the pass

She saw her cowboy her wild-riding cowboy
C
Low in the saddle her cowboy was riding in fast


She ran to meet him to kiss and to greet him
C7 F
He saw her and motioned her back with a wave of his hand
C
Bullets were flying Feleena was crying
G7 C
As she saw him fall from the saddle and into the sand


Feleena knelt near him to hold and to hear him
G7
When she felt the warm blood that flowed from the wound in his side

He raised to kiss her and she heard him whisper
C
Never forget me Feleena it's over goodbye


Quickly she grabbed for the six-gun that he wore
C7 F
And screaming in anger and placing the gun to her breast
C
Bury us both deep and maybe we'll find peace
G7 C
And pulling the trigger she fell across the dead cowboy's chest


Out in El Paso whenever the wind blows
G7
If you listen closely at night you'll hear in the wind

A woman is crying it's not the wind sighing
C
Old timer's tell you Feleena is calling for him


You'll hear them talking and you'll hear them walking
C7 F
You'll hear them laugh and you'll look but there's no one around
C
Don't be alarmed there is really no harm there
G7 C
It's only the young cowboy showing Feleena the town
