Lyrics

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl
Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina
Music would play and Felina would whirl

He's one of the greatest modern day troubadours. Now, commonly called a balladeer: he tells a story to music. Beyond outstandingl y excellent.
yermom32.... t h e song is a ballad! It is supposed to sound somewhat like a poem! It is a story told in verse with rhyme.
I would like to point out that I do not like this song because it is very confusing and sounds like a poem
@mjalexander Lol! So true!
Grew up in late 50's, early 60's on Marty Robbins and his ilk. Still love the music
This song is incredible

I loved his music this is my fave I was a lil' kid when I first heard this on 8 track!! Mom what's an 8track?
This is an amazing song. Wish id heard it sooner
My grandfather loved this song. RIP Papa.
Great song
Marty Robbins was a genius. His influence can be heard in the works of Elvis, the Beatles, and so many more. What a voice - and so much passion.

This song holds a special place in my heart. My dad would play this whenever he picked up his guitar. A lot of good memories in this song. He passed a year ago tomorrow. Love you, Dad!
