Tom Russell - El Llano Estacado



[Intro]
F  G  Am   G   C

[Verse 1]

"If I may trust your love", she cried
     Em
"And you would have me for a bride
Am
Ride the wild plain and bring
  Dm
Am flask of water from the Mustang Spring
Bb
Fly as o'er the eagle's wing 
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado"


[Verse 2]

He smiled and left without a word
 Em
Grabbed up saddle, bit, and spur
Am
Cinched his horse and rode away 
        Dm
Through prickly pear and old Maguey
Bb
Vanished with the dying day 
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Verse 3]

All through the night he gallops on
Em
Daylight broke, he rode alone
Am
Spurred his horse and drew no rein 
 Dm
Across that dry, forsaken plain
Bb
'Til the Mustang Spring he gained 
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Chorus]
F          G            Am
Crazy with love in Enamorado
 G                         C
Alone out on the Llano Estacado


[Verse 4]

Am bitter rest, a few short drinks
 Em
Across the spring a buzzard waits
    Am
His flask was full and so he turned
   Dm
To gain the bride he soon would earn
Bb
But the sky, bright red it burned
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Verse 5]

Oh, how this shining desert glow
    Em
His eyes were burning as he rode
    Am
Was this the dream or drunken one
   Dm
Or was he really riding on
    Bb
Was that a skull that gleamed and shone
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Verse 6]

Oh, hold onto his horse he cried
  Em
Ignore the devils in the sky
Am
Bear up a little longer yet
    Dm
His cracked lips he longed to wet
    Bb
His mouth was black with blood and sweat
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Chorus]
F          G            Am
Crazy with love in Enamorado
 G                         C
Alone out on the Llano Estacado


[Instrumental]
F  G  Am   G   C


[Verse 7]

But still against his chest he held
    Em
The water flask, for her he filled
   Am
He longed to drink, but well he knew
   Dm
If empty, her love he'd lose
Bb
But his raging thirst it grew
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Verse 8]

His horse went down, he wandered on
Em
Dizzy, blinded and alone
    Am
And you out there with watery eyes
Dm
Think of how it is to die
  Bb
Beneath the cruel, uncloudy sky
       G         C
Of the Llano Estacado


[Verse 9]

At last he stumbled, then he fell
    Em
His race was run, he knew full well
Am
Raising to his lips the flask
    Dm
His face, a blistered, painful mask
      Bb
Drank too, no more could she ask
       G         C
Of the Llano Estacado


[Chorus]
F          G            Am
Crazy with love in Enamorado
   G                         C
He died out on the Llano Estacado


[Verse 10]

That night at the Presidio
  Em
Beneath the torch-lights, way below
    Am
She danced and never thought of him
  Dm
A victim of a woman's whim
Bb
Lying with that death like grin
       G         C
On the Llano Estacado


[Chorus]
F          G            Am
Crazy with love in Enamorado
 G                         C
Alone out on the Llano Estacado


[Chorus]
F          G            Am
Crazy with love in Enamorado
 G                         C
Alone out on the Llano Estacado


[Outro]
F  G  Am  G    C
