[Verse 1]
D                     Em              A
Out in the west Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
D                          Em     
Nighttime would fine me in roses cantina,
A                                 D
Music would play and Felina would whirl.
D                           Em     
Black as the night were the eyes of Felina,
A                               D  
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
D                           Em      
My love was strong for this Mexican maiden,
A                                  D
I was in love, but in vain I could tell.

[Verse 2]
G                      D           G                          D
One night a wild young cowboy came in, wild as the west Texas wind...
D  
Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing,
                                    G
With wicked Felina, the girl that I love.
      A       D                            E         
So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden;
A                                      D
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
D                             Em
My challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat
    A                                       D
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.
D                   Em
Just for a moment I stood there in silence,
A                                   D
Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done.
D                            Em 
Many thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there;
A                                    D
I had but one chance and that was to run.

[Verse 3]
G                            D       G                              D                  
Out through the back door of roses I ran, out where the horses were tied...
D
I picked a good one; he looked like he could run,
D                             G
Up on his back and away I did ride.
        A         D                         Em             
Just as fast as I could from the west Texas town of El Paso,
A                            D
Out thru the badlands of new Mexico.

[Instrumental]
A C G D A C G D

D                  Em             
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless;
A                                    D
Everything's gone in life nothing is left.
    D                          Em 
But its been so long since Ive seen the young maiden,
A                                   D
My love is stronger that my fear of death.

[Verse 4]
G                D          G                       D
I saddled up and away I did go, riding alone in the dark...
D
Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me,
D                                           G
Tonight nothings worse than this pain in my heart.
       A           D                  Em 
And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso,
A                          D
I can see roses cantina below.
D                        Em                A                             D
My love is strong and it pushes me onward, down off the hill to Felina I go.

[Verse 5]
G                                                                  D
Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel a deep burning pain in my side 
D
Its getting harder to stay in the saddle.
D                            G
I'm getting weary, unable to ride.
       A        D                      Em 
But my love for Felina is strong and I rise where Ive fallen;
A                                 D 
Though I am weary, I cant stop to rest.
D                       Em 
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle,
A                               D
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.
D                      Em          
From out of nowhere, Felina has found me,
A                                    D
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
D                     Em    
Cradled by two loving arms that Ill die for,
A                                   D    A  G  
One little kiss.... and Felina good-bye.
A           D    A  G       
Felina good-bye.
A           D    A  G
Felina good-bye.
A           D    A  G
Felina good-bye.
A           D    A  G
Felina good-bye.
A           D    A  G 
Felina good-bye.
