Johnny Cash – The Matador lyrics
The crowd is waiting
For the bullfight matador
My final fight
The place is packed once more

But Anita won't
Throw me a rose this fight
The one she wears
Is not for me tonight

She's watching now with
Her new love, I know
Walk proud and slow

Be strong and sure
And give the crowd their show
They want blood, you know

You're still their idol
As you were before
Kill just one more
Remind Anita you're
The greatest matador

The time has come
Forget Anita in the stands
Be a tall and strong
And brave and noble man

Be better than
You've ever been before
Make this your
Greatest moment, matador

She's watching now with
Her new love, I know
Walk proud and slow

Be strong and sure
And give the crowd their show
They want blood, you know

You're still their idol
As you were before
Kill just one more
Remind Anita you're
The greatest matador
