LITTLE CRACKED BELL (OF SAN RAQUEL) (Tommie Connor) Jimmy Justice - 1963 The Mudlarks - 1963 As I was riding home one day >From a rodeo in Mexico I missed my way along the trail And I didn't know which way to go My horse was lame and we were lost And as the purple shadows fell I heard the little cracked bell Of San Raquel Beyond the ridge that lay ahead In a valley as the sun went down Reflected in the golden rays Were the rooftops of a tiny town It seemed the answer to a prayer And then I knew that all was well Thanks to the little cracked bell Of San Raquel The next day was the Rose Fiesta And in the crowded market square I danced with a girl, and I caressed her And she gave me the rose in her hair And in return I gave my heart But before this tale of mine is told Inside the mission church today On her hand I'll place a band of gold As on the stage we ride away To what the Gringos call a small hotel They'll ring the little cracked bell Of San Raquel As on the stage we ride away To what the Gringos call a small hotel They'll ring the little cracked bell Of San Raquel (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2017)
