Clint Bradley Performs El Paso.New Official Video.


Clit Bradley  "Artist # 1 of Western Music in Europe"

 Every singer / songwriter or musician has a seminal moment at some time in their lives. You hear or see something that makes you want to pick up an instrument and play. For me it was hearing 'Marty Robbins' sing his gun fighter ballads. I have a vivid memory of hearing that sound for the first time, it totally captivated and drew me in. I think I was probably around 9-10 years old. If memory serves me correctly, the first song I learned the chords to was 'Running Gun'. I later discovered the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and others and with each step I took further into the world of Western music the more enchanted I became. I was fortunate to be born in "The New Forest" and as a child had the woods, heath lands and secret beaches of the Solent to wander around and dream in. Growing up in a rural area somehow seemed to fuel my interest in Western music, and the folklore of the Cowboy. If I was not listening to western music, I was watching a western movie, or reading a western novel. I was quite simply lost to the genre.

Marty Robbins El Paso Lyrics


Out in the West Texas town of El Paso

I fell in love with a Mexican girl

Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina

Music would play and Felina would whirl


Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina

Wicked and evil while casting a spell

My love was deep for this Mexican maiden

I was in love but in vain, I could tell


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


Just for a moment I stood there in silence

Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done

Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there

I had but one chance and that was to run


Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran

Out where the horses were tied

I caught a good one, it looked like it could run

Up on its back and away I did ride


Just as fast as I

Could from the West Texas town of El Paso

Out to the badlands of New Mexico


Back in El Paso my life would be worthless

Everything's gone in life; nothing is left

It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden

My love is stronger than my fear of death


I saddled up and away I did go

Riding alone in the dark

Maybe tomorrow, a bullet may find me

Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart


And at last here I

Am on the hill overlooking El Paso

I can see Rosa's cantina below

My love is strong and it pushes me onward

Down off the hill to Felina I go


Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys

Off to my left ride a dozen or more

Shouting and shooting, I can't let them catch me

I have to make it to Rosa's back door


Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel

A deep burning pain in my side

Though I am trying to stay in the saddle

I'm getting weary, unable to ride


But my love for

Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen

Though I am weary I can't stop to rest

I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle

I feel the bullet go deep in my chest


From out of nowhere Felina has found me

Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side

Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for

One little kiss and Felina, goodbye
