San Angelo
Written and recorded by Marty Robbins

G
North of the border of Old Mexico
D7
I rode one day to the cow town of San Angelo

A hot sun was glowing a warm wind was blowing
G
Still not as warm as the lips that I waited to kiss


Cheeks that put blushing red roses to shame
D7
Lips that were fresher than flowers when kissed by the rain

Dark eyes that sparkled much brighter than diamonds
G
She was a beauty Secora was my lover's name

C
I met her down in Laredo
G
Everyone there in this border town called her the rose

Mexican cowboys drank to Secora
C
Everyone loved her but I was the one that she chose
D7 G D7
An outlaw above all the rest now my heart beats so madly
G
Soon she will be at my side


She sent a message a long time ago
D7
Secora had promised to meet me in San Angelo

I was aware of the chance I was taking
G
I was an outlaw but great was my love for this girl


I must be with her I can't stay away
D7
Nights spent without her are lonely and so are the days

If it means death then I'll have to chance it
G
Only a few moments more and she'll be in my arms

C
At ten o'clock in the morning
G
I tied my horse and I started to walk down the street

Where was Secora had she forgotten
C
This was the day and the hour that she wanted to meet
D7 G D7
But something is wrong with our plans and I fear death awaits me
G
Here on this hot dusty street


Up on a housetop but still I can see
D7
There hides a man with the rifle it's pointed at me

I might escape from the man with the rifle
G
But there are others just like him that I cannot see


Back of each window the click of a gun
D7
Die if I stay and my love for her won't let me run

Where is Secora will my eyes see her
G
Then in a moment she runs from her door down the street

C
Up on your horse she is crying
G
Ride out of town it's a trap and they're waiting for you

But if I ride out she must ride with me
C
Then in a moment I know that our chances are gone
D7 G D7
For a bullet is well on its way and it finds my Secora
G
She dies as she falls in my arms


Tears dim my vision but plainly I see
D7
The ranger that killed her is standing there waiting for me

I walk to meet him my one thought is beat him
G
He deserves death and I swear that this ranger will die

C
I beat his draw and I shot him
G
Shot him six times just as fast as the bullets would fly

My gun is empty or more I would shoot him
C
Now there are others just like him that want me to die
D7 G D7
Their bullets are coming my way how they hurt when they hit me
G
The pain makes me fall to the ground


Gone is my strength just the will left to fight
D7
I hear the sound of the lead as it robs me of life

If I must die let me find Secora
G
Let me hold on to her hand for the few moments left


Blindly I search and it isn't in vain
D7
I touch the soft velvet hand and it eases the pain

Life is no more but we're together
G
Even in death she's my lover it's over goodbye
