Jimmy Martinez Written and recorded by Marty Robbins [3/4 time]
C G7 The story began in Renosa a village in old Mexico C A girl and a Mexican soldier were sweethearts a long time ago G7 They made big plans for a wedding the town of Renosa would go C G7 C And they would see Jimmy Martinez married to Sarah Sero oh oh oh
G7 One day there came a message it said that Jimmy must go C As Jimmy was leaving Renosa to fight at the Alamo G7 He never returned to Renosa the story's been told and retold C G7 C How Jimmy the Mexican soldier died at the Alamo oh oh oh
G7 Jimmy's last letter to Sarah began with a message like this C Oh dear one how sweet is the memory the memory of our parting kiss G7 I send my heart in this letter I pray to the one up above C G7 C Oh Sarah don't ever forget me stay just as pure as the dove oh oh oh
G7 I'm like the dove in your window it's chosen just one mate for life C And you are the one I have chosen the one that I want for my wife G7 He never returned to Renosa the story's been told and retold C G7 C How Jimmy the Mexican soldier died at the Alamo oh oh oh
G7 Sarah refused to believe them she prayed for Jimmy's return C And there ever night in her window a small little candle would burn G7 Years turned her dark hair to silver she prayed for Jimmy so long C Then one night the village was saddened the light in her window was gone G7 C Oh oh oh
