Matamoros

Song Author Kay Arnold Performer: Billy Walker og Ray Wix Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]In old Mexico I stand on the square in Mata[C]moros
Round [D7]the plaza the couples are walking to music so [G]sweet
I found my love not too long ago in Mata[C]moros
But [D7]I´m feeling low as the beggar who sits in the [G]street

Oh the [C]promises that she made with eyes black as midnight
[A7]How could I know how fickle her promise could [D7]be   
Now [G]I´m back to find what I feel is mine in Mat[C]amoros
And [D7]there´ll be bad trouble if I catch her cheating on [G]me  

Streets are narrow and dark and Tequila runs free in Mata[C]moros
I stop [D7]for one moment outside of Miguel´s swinging [G]door
My heart breaks to hear the same haunting sound of [C]Granada
She [D7]once called it our song and vowed she´d be mine [G]evermore

Then a[C]cross the square with this wild young Vaquero I see her
[A7]Laughing and dancing and tossing her raven black [D7]hair   
Fate [G]may take a hand when I face this man from Mata[C]moros
For the [D7]love of my woman is one thing that I'll never [G]share

Now I walk in the night far away from the lights of Mata[C]moros
And re[D7]call the last moments when I knew she loved me more than [G]life
I can still hear her cry I love you and I´ll prove it [C]Manana
Then [D7]seeing my danger she jumped in front of his [G]knife

I know [C]of the stories they´ll tell in the dim lit casinos
[A7]Of the raven haired beauty who for her love lay dead on the [D7]floor
They´ll [G]speak of the fight with the gringo that night in Matoa[C]moros
And [D7]wonder what happened for he never returned any[G]more


In old Mexico I stand on the square in Matamoros
Round the plaza the couples are walking to music so sweet
I found my love not too long ago in Matamoros
But I´m feeling low as the beggar who sits in the street

Oh the promises that she made with eyes black as midnight
How could I know how fickle her promise could be
Now I´m back to find what I feel is mine in Matamoros
And there´ll be bad trouble if I catch her cheating on me

Streets are narrow and dark and Tequila runs free in Matamoros
I stop for one moment outside of Miguel´s swinging door
My heart breaks to hear the same haunting sound of Granada
She once called it our song and vowed she´d be mine evermore

Then across the square with this wild young Vaquero I see her
Laughing and dancing and tossing her raven black hair
Fate may take a hand when I face this man from Matamoros
For the love of my woman is one thing that I'll never share

Now I walk in the night far away from the lights of Matamoros
And recall the last moments when I knew she loved me more than life
I can still hear her cry I love you and I´ll prove it Manana
Then seeing my danger she jumped in front of his knife

I know of the stories they´ll tell in the dim lit casinos
Of the raven haired beauty who for her love lay dead on the floor
They´ll speak of the fight with the gringo that night in Matoamoros
And wonder what happened for he never returned anymore
