Tom Russell - Gallo Del Cielo


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
C   Dm   G    C

[Verse 1]
                                                        Dm
Carlos Zaragoza left his home in Casas Grandes when the moon was full
   G                                                          C
No money in his pocket, just a locket of his sister framed in gold
                                                          Dm
He rode into El Sueco, stole a rooster called Gallo Del Cielo
        G                             F               G                C
Then he swam the Rio Grande with that fighter nestled deep beneath his arm


[Verse 2]
                                                        Dm
El Gallo Del Cielo was a rooster born in heaven, so the legends say
    G                                                               C
His wings they had been broken, he had one eye rolling crazy in his head
                                                                             Dm
And he'd fought a hundred fights, and the legends say that one night near El Sueco
       G                             F                G                   C
They'd fought Gallo seven times, and seven times he'd left brave roosters dead


[Chorus]
F                                                   G
Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in San Antonio
       Dm G               Dm                                  G
I have 27 dollars and the good luck of your picture framed in gold
F                                                            G
Tonight I'll put it all on the fighting spurs of Gallo Del Cielo
         Dm             G            F                G            C
And then I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long ago


[Verse 3]
                                                       Dm
Outside of San Diego, in the onion fields of Paco Monteverde
    G                                                 C
The Pride of San Diego lay sleeping on a fancy bed of silk
                                                                    Dm
And they laughed when Zaragoza pulled the one-eyed del Cielo from beneath his coat
         G                           F          G               C
But they cried when Zaragoza walked away with a thousand dollar bill


[Chorus]
F                                                   G
Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in Santa Barbara
       Dm              G               Dm                                  G
I have fifteen hundred dollars and the good luck of your picture framed in gold
F                                                            G
Tonight I'll put it all on the fighting spurs of Gallo Del Cielo
         Dm             G            F                G            C
And then I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long ago


[Verse 4]
                                                                          Dm
Now the moon has gone to hiding and the lantern light spills shadows on a fighting sand
        G                                                     C
Where a wicked black named Zorro faces Gallo del Cielo in the night
                                                              Dm
But Carlos Zaragoza fears the tiny crack that runs across his rooster's beak
       G                           F                G             C
And he fears he has lost the fifty thousand dollars riding on the fight


[Chorus]
F                                                   G
Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in Santa Clara
         Dm             G           Dm                                  G
Yes, the money's on the table, I am holding to your good luck framed in gold
    F                                                           G
And everything we've dreamed of is riding on the spurs of Del Cielo
            Dm             G            F                G            C
I pray that I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long ago


[Verse 5]
                                                              Dm
Then the signal it was given, and the cocks rose together far above the sand
   G                                              C
El Gallo del Cielo sunk a gaff into Zorro's shiny breast
                                                                       Dm
They were separated quickly but they rose and fought each other thirty-seven times
        G                         F                 G              C
And the legends say that everyone agreed that del Cielo fought the best


[Verse 6]
                                                                        Dm
Then the screams of Zaragoza filled the night outside the town of Santa Clara
       G                                                    C
As the beak of del Cielo lay broken like a shell within his hand
                                                                     Dm
And they say that Zaragoza screamed a curse upon the bones of Pancho Villa
     G                               F           G               C
When Zorro rose up one last time and drove del Cielo through the sand


[Chorus]
F                                                     G
Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in San Francisco
          Dm          G            Dm                                   G
I have no money in my pocket, I no longer have your good luck framed in gold
  F                                                         G
I buried it last evening with the bones of my beloved Del Cielo
         Dm            G            F                G            C
And I'll not return to buy the land Villa stole from father long ago


[Verse 7]
       F                                                  G
Do the rivers still run muddy outside of my beloved Casas Grandes?
         Dm           G                   Dm                              G
Does the scar upon my brother's face turn red when he hears mention of my name?
       F                                                 G
Do the people of El Sueco curse the theft of Gallo del Cielo?
      Dm             G             F          G                    C
Well, tell my family not to worry, I will not return to cause them shame
