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
