Anita Bryant – A Texan And A Girl From Mexico lyrics

There's a story that
They tell of long ago
'Bout a Texan and a
Girl from Mexico

How they met
And fell in love
So hopelessly
Though they knew their
Secret love could never be

Every night, he'd ride
Across the Rio Grande
Every night, he'd risk his life
To hold her hand

For he knew her father
Swore to take the life
Of the cowboy who would
Make Marie his wife

It was never meant to be
Still they kissed so tenderly
And they vowed their love
Would never, ever die

As her held her, oh, so tight
The sound of gunfire
Filled the night
The lovers sighed and then
They kissed their last goodbye

If you ever ride
Across the Rio Grande
You will find two tombstones
On the desert sand

And they tell the
Story of so long ago
'Bout a Texan and a
Girl from Mexico
