Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone.

On the Chisholm Trail it was midnight
Carmela was strong on his mind
Because of the life he have chosen
Carmela had left him behind.

Too long he'd been el bandito
Carmela had left him alone
But today someone brought a message
She'd been seen in old San Antone.

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone.

--- Instrumental ---

Then the night came alight with gunfire
He knew that at last he'd been found
As the ranger's bad shoot rightly
El bandito laid on the ground.

Carmela she knew he was dying
That all of her dreams were in vain
As she kissed his lips for the last time
She heard him whisper again.

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone...
