Cross the Brazos at Waco  Billy Walker

Originally in the key of D.
[C]On the Chisolm Trail it was midnight
Carmella was strong on his [G7]mind
Because of the life he had chosen
Carmella had left him be[C]hind
Too long, he had been El Bandito
Carmella had [C7]left him [F]alone
But today someone brought a [C]message
She had [G7]been seen in ol' San An-[C]tone
[F]Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
[C]Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm [G7]safe when I reach San An-[C]tone
He glanced back over his shoulder
The posse was nowhere in [G7]sight
He'd sent for Carmella to meet him
On the banks of the Brazos to[C]night
She was waiting and he kept the promise
He'd made such a [C7]long time a[F]go
As he dropped the guns that she [C]hated
In the [G7]muddy Brazos be[C]low
Then the night came alive with gunfire
He knew that at last he'd been [G7]found
As the Rangers badge shone brightly
El Bandito lay on the [C]ground
Carmella knew he was dying
That all of her dreams were [F]in vain
As she kissed his lips for the [C]last time
She heard [G7]him whisper a[C]gain
TAG: I'm [G7]safe when I reach San An-[C]tone
