[Intro]
C F C F C

[Verse 1]
     C                              F                            C
From thirty thousand feet above the desert floor, I see it there below
                      F                          C
A city with a legend - the west Texas city of El Paso
                              F                          C
Where long ago I heard a song about a Texas cowboy and a girl
                                           G                                C
And a little place called Rosa's, where he used to go and watch this beauty whirl.
                                      F                         C
I don't recall who sang the song, but I recall the story that I heard
                                F                         C
And as I look down on the city, I remember each and every word
                                F                             C
The singer sang about a jealous cowboy, and the way he used a gun
                               G                           C
To kill another cowboy then he had to leave El Paso on the run.

[Chorus]
        F                C
El Paso City, by the Rio Grande
    G
The cowboy lived and rode away
     
But love was strong he couldn't stay
                                    C
He rode back just to die in that El Paso sand
        F                C
El Paso City, by the Rio Grande
  G                   
I try not to let you cross my mind
                                                                 C
But still I find there's such a mystery in the song that I don't understand.

[Verse 2]
   C                                  F                             C
My mind is down there somewhere, as I fly above the badlands of New Mexico
                                       F                             C
I can't explain why I should know, the very trail he rode back to El Paso
                           F                                C
Can it be that man can disappear from life and live another time
                                       G                                           C
And does the mystery deepen 'cause you think that you yourself lived in that other time.
                                  F                             C
Somewhere in my deepest thoughts, familIar scenes and memories unfold
                                    F                                C
These wild and unexplained emotions that I've had so long but I have never told
                                  F                           C
Like every time I fly up thru the heavens and I see you there below
                              G                           C
I get the feeling sometime in another world I lived in El Paso.

[Chorus] 
      F                C
El Paso City, by the Rio Grande
G
Could it be that I could be the cowboy in this mystery
                                       C
That died there in that desert sand so long ago
        F                C
El Paso City, by the Rio Grande
  G
A voice tells me to go and see

Another voice keeps tellin' me
                            C
Maybe death awaits me in El Paso
        F  
El Paso City....
