Texas Leather And Mexican Lace

Steve Karliski - Larry Kolber

© Screen Gems Music, BMI

A cowboy rode out of Laredo
The fastest gun in the nation
He tried to go to old Mexico
To lose his reputation

So he rode his pinto pony
Till the sign read Old Ringo Town
And there he bought an acre
And vowed that he'd settle down

He hung up his old leather holster
And he lived by law and order
But he fell in love with Carmella
A rich ranchero's daughter

But Texas leather and Mexican lace
Never can go together
Texas leather and Mexican lace
Must stay apart forever

Well he spent the summer with her
For the sweet Carmella adored him
But her father saw a poster
And sent the deputy for him

Texas leather and Mexican lace...

Now there's a stone in the churchyard
Where you'll find Carmella each day
And she cries as she reads the inscription
That took her poor cowboy away

Texas leather and Mexican lace...
Texas leather and Mexican lace...

Mexican Joe

Mitchell Torok

© American Music, BMI

South of the border hey I know a lad
He's got more fun than anybody's had
Don't got no worry don't got no dough
Everybody's wondering bout Mexican Joe

In old Mexico they call him the Rhumba King
Leads all the women around on a string
When they go out they get a million thrills
But the lovely senoritas all wind up with the bills

Dancin' romancin' always on the go
Sun shinin' down on Mexican Joe
[ horns ]
He makes the night spots all along the bay
People wanna see him when he comes their way
He spreads so much joy everywhere he goes
Everybody shouts Viva la Mexican Joe

He likes to gamble at poker he's an ace
He's always lucky with cards at ever face
At winnin' the money he is sure a whiz
But when they win they don't collect
Cause they don't know where he is

Dancin' romancin' always on the go...
[ guitar ]
He don't got no income tax cause he don't got no dough
Still he gets along just fine how we'll never know
He's got everything he wants a girl a drink a song
If we use his formula we surely can't go wrong

His favorite playground is anywhere there's girls
He's got that somethin' that sets their hearts a whirl
It couldn't be his money cause he ain't got a peso
But when he wants a kiss all he's gotta do is say so

Dancin' romancin' always on the go...
Sun shinin' down on Mexican Joe

Cool Water

Bob Nolan

© American Music, BMI

All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burnt dry
And souls that cry for water cool clear water

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water cool water
And with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water cool clear water

Keep a movin' Dan don't you listen to him Dan
He's a devil not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan can you see that big green tree
Where the water's running free
And it's waiting there for you and me
Water cool clear water

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water cool water
And way up there he'll hear our prayer
And show us where there's water cool clear water

Keep a movin' Dan don't you listen to him Dan...
Cool clear water

I.O.U. (A Broken Heart)

Joyce Selznick - George Fischoff

© Screen Gems Music, BMI

Dear I've been remembering all we used to do
The things we shared together the things that IOU

IOU the long long waits
The broken dates when you were out with someone new
IOU the tears I've cried
The times you lied and told me you were being true
IOU a thousand fights
The sleepless nights your cheating ways kept me awake
IOU a broken heart
But you haven't got a heart for me to break

If I tried for ever still I really know
I could never never pay you all I owe

IOU the deep distress
The sorry mess you made of all the hopes I knew
IOU the vows you broke
The great big joke you made of my great love for you
IOU the tortured brain
The hurt and pain I used to bear for true love's sake
IOU a broken heart
But you haven't got a heart for me to break

IOU times and tons of grief and misery
IOU alibis that wouldn't get by a little child of three

For my parting words to you I hope before life's through
You will owe to someone else all that IOU

IOU some bitter pills
The shakes and chills I got when you would never phone
IOU the many crimes the endless times had to sit at home alone
IOU a thing or two
For all the love you'd never give but always take
IOU a broken heart
But you haven't got a heart for me to break
IOU a broken heart
But you haven't got a heart for me to break

Wayward Wind

Herb Newman - Stan Lebowski

© Vogue Music, BMI

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
He spent his younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward bound
Made him a slave to his wandering ways

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind
[ horns ]
Oh I met him there in a border town
He vowed we'd never part
Though he tried his best to settle down
Now I'm alone with a broken heart

Abd the wayward wind is a restless wind...
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Padre

Paul F. Webster - Alan Romans

© Charles Daniels Music, ASCAP

Padre Padre in my grief I turn to you

The day that we wed you blessed us and said may heaven bestow you grace
There in that holy place we shared our first embrace
Our cottage was small but richer than all the palaces of a king
All day the birds would sing our hearts were full of spring

Padre Padre what happened to our love so true
Padre Padre in my grief I turn to you

Then she came along and sang him her song and won him with honey lies
She of the golden eyes now it's my heart that cries
So I kneel and pray the hours away and weary my heart has grown
Wondering where love has flown counting my tears alone

Padre Padre what happened to our love so true
Padre Padre pray for my love and me
Padre Padre pray for my love and me

When There's A Fire In Your Heart

Merle Kilgore - Sonny Williams

© Al Gallico Music, BMI

When there's a fire in your heart break the glass sound the alarm
Call on me oh I'll be there
Instant service speedy fast I was your first I'll be your last
No matter who you have in between
And when there's a fire in your heart break the glass sound the alarm
When she's not all she seems
Instant service speedy fast I was your first I'll be your last
No matter who you have in between

There's been hearts spells in close spells ever since we met
I've seen your small fires your big fires but I won't give up yet
Oh someday you'll yearn cause your heart's gonna burn for that old familiar glow
You'll be burned out on smoke out and come back to me I know

When there's a fire in your heart break the glass sound the alarm...

Every thrill that you blaze makes me stay up closer behind
While you've been dating I've been waiting just hurtin' all of the time
Your new flame was older and all will grow colder for mine was higher and higher
So I'm hanging on your sea and you'll come running back to me
Cause I'm fightin' fire with with fire

Comancheros

Tillman Franks

© Robbins Music, ASCAP

Paul Regret of New Orleans was a fast man with a gun
Didn't wanna go but he had to run when he shot down the judge's son
Yes he shot judge Mobile's son

With the dark of night he left that town never to return again
With a one-way ticket at the end of the line he was told by a stranger man
The Comancheros are takin' this land

And then the Comancheros came a ridin' through the night
Stealin' and a killin' takin' everything in sight
Nothin' left behind but a blood in the sand
The Comancheros are takin' this land
The Comancheros are takin' this land
[ trumpet ]
I'll cover every inch of the ground where I stand I'd die before I'd run
I'm not afraid of any living man and here I'll make my stand
With a gun I'll make my stand

He rode into the Comanchero town like a wild man on the run
Before he'd leave they'd all be dead they died by his blazin' gun
They died by his blazin' gun

And then the Comancheros came ridin' through the night...

The Comancheros are takin' this land
The Comancheros are takin' this land

Yellow Bandana

Steve Karliski - Larry Kolber - Al Gorgoni

© Screen Gems Music, BMI

This is the story of a Yellow Bandana
A handsome young soldier and a girl named Rosanna

Oh way out west in the wilds of New Mexico
There lived a girl and a soldier who loved her so
And every night neath the full crimson moon above
This brave young soldier would pledge her his love

He gave Rosanna his yellow bandana
To wear in her hair till he's with her once more
He gave Rosanna his yellow bandana
Mounted his pony and rode off to war

His orders came and he had to ride west again
Seems that Apaches were causing unrest again
He kissed Rosanna goodbye as he rode away
Promising this time he'd come back to stay

He gave Rosanna his yellow bandana...

The war was over and he came back home and found
That the Apaches had burned the whole village down
And neath the tree where he'd last kissed Rosanna
Draped on a cross was his yellow bandana

He gave Rosanna his yellow bandana...
He gave Rosanna his yellow bandana...

Tumbling Tumbleweeds

Bob Nolan

© Mesa Music, BMI

See them tumbling down
Pledging their love to the ground
Lonely but free I'll be found
Drifting along with a tumbling tumbleweed

Cares of the past are behind
Nowhere to go but I'll find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with a tumbling tumbleweed

I know when night has gone
That new world's born at dawn

I'll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with a tumbling tumbleweed

I know when night has gone
That new world's born at dawn

I'll keep rolling along...

Spanish Flea

Julius Wechter

© Almo Music, ASCAP

There was a little Spanish flea
A record star he thought he'd be
He heard of singers like Beatles
And the Chipmunks he'd seen on TV
Why not a little Spanish flea

And so he hidi inside a doggie from Madrid
He arrived in the city
Still singin' his sweet harmony
As proud as any flea could be

He walked around as if he owned the town
Humming his pint sized melody
With his guitar he knew he'd be a star
And in his own hometown how proud he'd be

Then all at once he met a man
Who said I'll help you if I can
He listened close to his song
And then he sang right along for you see
He loved that little Spanish flea
[ instrumental ]
You'll be the rage I'll put you on the stage
In costumes like you've never worn
While at a glance he knew this was his chance
Yes all at once a Spanish star was born

For when the people heard him play
They all began to shout ole
He was the pride of the nation
A singing sensation was he
Though he was just a Spanish flea
