Matamoros Recorded by Billy Walker [3/4 time] written by Kay Arnold
G C In old Mexico I stand on the square in Matamoros D7 G Round the plaza the couples are walking to music so sweet C I found my love not too long ago in Matamoros D7 G But I’m feeling low as the beggar who sits in the street
C Oh the promises that she made with eyes black as midnight A7 D7 How could I know how fickle her promise could be G C Now I’m back to find what I feel is mine in Matamoros D7 G And there’ll be bad trouble if I catch her cheating on me
C Streets are narrow and dark and Tequila runs free in Matamoros D7 G I stop for one moment outside of Miguel’s swinging door C My heart breaks to hear the same haunting sound of Granada D7 G She once called it our song and vowed she’d be mine evermore
C Then across the square with this wild young Vaquero I see her A7 D7 Laughing and dancing and tossing her raven black hair G C Fate may take a hand when I face this man from Matamoros D7 G For the love of my woman is one thing that I'll never share
C Now I walk in the night far away from the lights of Matamoros D7 G And recall the last moments when I knew she loved me more than life C I can still hear her cry I love you and I’ll prove it Manana D7 G Then seeing my danger she jumped in front of his knife
C I know of the stories they’ll tell in the dim lit casinos A7 D7 Of the raven haired beauty who for her love lay dead on the floor G C They’ll speak of the fight with the gringo that night in Matoamoros D7 G And wonder what happened for he never returned anymore
