Marty Robbins – Angelina lyrics

We were children who played
On the backstreets of border towns
And we dreamed of the day when we might run away
To where the good life was found
I remember the night
When I asked you to be my girl
Now I feel so ashamed of the promise I made
When I said I would give you the world

My Angelina, when I look in your eyes
I believe I could change the world
With you by my side
My Angelina, give me courage to try
I believe in the man I see
In my Angelina's eyes

Seems like nothin' worked out
Quite the way it was planned to be
Oh, the dreams that we chased when we came to this place
Are like nightmares to me
Workin' day after day
In the noise of the factory
And the money's no good but if I say a word
Immigration will take me away

My Angelina, when I look in your eyes
I believe I could change the world
With you by my side
My Angelina, give me courage to try
I believe in the man I see
In my Angelina's eyes

If I hadn't been drunk
I would never have hit that man
But the whiskey and I saw the look in his eye
When he asked Angelina to dance
Now they're takin' me south
To a jail down in border town
But it won't be for long, Angelina, be strong
Keep believin' our dreams will work out

My Angelina, when I look in your eyes
I believe I could change the world
With you by my side
My Angelina, give me courage to try
I believe in the man I see
In my Angelina's eyes

My Angelina, when I look in your eyes
I believe I could change the world
With you by my side
My Angelina, give me courage to try(fade)
