El Paso City

Song Author Marty Robbins Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]From thirty thousand feet above
The [F]desert floor I see it there be[C]low  

A city with a legend
The [F]west Texas city of El [C]Paso


Where long ago I heard a song
[F]About a Texas cowboy and a [C]girl

And a little place called Rosa's
Where he [G7]used to go and watch this beauty [C]whirl


I don't recall who sang the song
But I [F]recall the story that I [C]heard

And as I look down on the city
I [F]remember each and every [C]word


The singer sang about a jealous cowboy
And [F]the way he used a [C]gun  

To kill another cowboy
Then he had to [G7]leave El Paso on the [C]run  

[C7]El Paso [F]Cit-y by the Rio [C]Grand-e
The [G7]cowboy lived and rode away

But love was strong he couldn't stay
He rode back just to die in that El [C]Paso sand[C7]    

El Paso [F]Cit-y by the Rio [C]Grand-e
I [G7]try not to let you cross my mind

But still I find there's just a mystery
In the song that I don't under[C]stand


My mind is down there somewhere
As I [F]fly above the badlands of New [C]Mexico

I can't explain why I should know
The [F]very trail he rode back to El [C]Paso


Can it be that man can disappear
From [F]life and live another [C]time
And does the mystery deepen cause you [G7]think
That you yourself lived in that other [C]time


Somewhere in my deepest thoughts
Fa[F]miliar scenes and memories [C]unfold

These wild and unexplained emotions
That [F]I've had so long but I have never [C]told


Like every time I fly up through the heavens
And [F]I see you there be[C]low  

I get the feeling sometime
In an[G7]other world I lived in El [C]Paso [C7]    

El Paso [F]Cit-y by the Rio [C]Grand-e
Could it [G7]be that I could be

The cowboy in this mystery
That died there in that desert sand so long [C]ago [C7]    

El Paso [F]Cit-y by the Rio [C]Grand-e

[G7]A voice tells me to go and see

Another voice keeps telling me
Maybe death awaits me in El [C]Paso
El Paso [F]Cit-y

From thirty thousand feet above
The desert floor I see it there below

A city with a legend
The west Texas city of El Paso

Where long ago I heard a song
About a Texas cowboy and a girl

And a little place called Rosa's
Where he used to go and watch this beauty whirl

I don't recall who sang the song
But I recall the story that I heard

And as I look down on the city
I remember each and every word

The singer sang about a jealous cowboy
And the way he used a gun

To kill another cowboy
Then he had to leave El Paso on the run

El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
The cowboy lived and rode away

But love was strong he couldn't stay
He rode back just to die in that El Paso sand

El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
I try not to let you cross my mind

But still I find there's just a mystery
In the song that I don't understand

My mind is down there somewhere
As I fly above the badlands of New Mexico

I can't explain why I should know
The very trail he rode back to El Paso

Can it be that man can disappear
From life and live another time
And does the mystery deepen cause you think
That you yourself lived in that other time

Somewhere in my deepest thoughts
Familiar scenes and memories unfold

These wild and unexplained emotions
That I've had so long but I have never told

Like every time I fly up through the heavens
And I see you there below

I get the feeling sometime
In another world I lived in El Paso

El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e
Could it be that I could be

The cowboy in this mystery
That died there in that desert sand so long ago

El Paso Cit-y by the Rio Grand-e

A voice tells me to go and see

Another voice keeps telling me
Maybe death awaits me in El Paso
El Paso Cit-y
