Hank Snow – Cross The Brazos At Waco lyrics

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone

On the Chisholm Trail it was midnight
Carmella was strong on his mind
Because of the life he had chosen
Carmella had left him behind
Too long he'd been a bandito
Carmella had left him alone
But today someone brought a message
She'd been seen in old San Antone

(Repeat Chorus)

Then the night came alive with gunfire
He knew that at last he'd been found
As the range of badges shone brightly
A bandit a lay on the ground
Carmella she knew he was dying
That all of her dreams were in vain
As she kissed his lips for the last time
She heard him whisper again

(Repeat Chorus)
