El Paso, Marty Robbins. All 3 parts.


Recommended Posts

I had no idea there were three parts to this musical trilogy. I just heard the second. Brilliant story-song. Enjoy! :D

Thanks!  On the way home I had been thinking about looking up "Feleena" on YouTube and posting it. 

 

Here is the version I had in mind.

I've often thought that his crime wasn't shooting the "wild young cowboy" but stealing a horse.  After all, 

"One Night A Wild Young Cowboy Came In
Wild As The West Texas Wind
Dashing And Daring, A Drink He Was Sharing
With Wicked Felina, The Girl That I Loved
So In Anger I Challenged His Right For The Love Of This Maiden
Down Went His Hand For The Gun That He Wore
My Challenge Was Answered In Less Than A Heartbeat
The Handsome Young Stranger Lay Dead On The Floor."

Sounds like a fair fight.  The "wild young cowboy" made the first move for a gun.

The 2nd, Feleena, has been posted in The Saloon several times in the past 2 or 3 years.
