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
