TEXAS LEATHER AND MEXICAN LACE (Steve Karliski / Larry Kolber) Teresa Brewer - 1966 Patti Page - 1966 Also recorded by: Johnny & Rijk (Dutch title "Texas Jimmy Ende Amelandse Truus") A cowboy rode out of Laredo The fastest gun in the nation He tried to go to Old Mexico To lose his reputation So he rode his pinto pony Till the sign read Old Ringo Town And there he bought an acre And vowed that he'd settle down He hung up his old leather holster And he lived by law and order But he fell in love with Carmella A rich ranchero's daughter But Texas leather and Mexican lace Never can go together Texas leather and mexican lace Must stay apart forever Well, he spent the summer with her For the sweet Carmella adored him But her father saw a poster And sent the deputy for him Texas leather and Mexican lace Never can go together Texas leather and mexican lace Must stay apart forever Now there's a stone in the churchyard Where you'll find Carmella each day And she cries as she reads the inscription That took her poor cowboy away Texas leather and Mexican lace Never can go together Texas leather and mexican lace Must stay apart forever (Transcribed by Mel Priddle -September 2014)
