Lyrics

The story began in Renosa A village in old Mexico A girl and a Mexican soldier Were sweethearts, a long time ago They made big plans for a wedding The town of Renosa would go And there would see Jimmy Martinez Married to Sarah Sero Oh-oh-oh One day there came a message It said that Jimmy must go As Jimmy was leavin` Renosa To fight at the Alamo He never returned to Renosa The story`s been told and retold How Jimmy the Mexican soldier Died at the Alamo Oh-oh-oh

Jimmy`s last letter to Sarah Began with a message like this Oh dear one, how sweet is the memory The memory of our parting kiss I send my heart in this letter I pray to the one up above Oh Sarah, don`t ever forget me Stay just as pure as the dove Oh-oh-oh I`m like the dove in your window It`s chosen just one mate for life And you are the one I have chosen The one that I want for my wife He never returned to Renosa The story`s been told and retold How Jimmy the Mexican soldier Died at the Alamo Oh-oh-oh Sarah refused to believe them She prayed for Jimmy`s return And there ever night in her window A small little candle would burn Years turned her dark hair to silver She prayed for Jimmy so long Then one night the village was saddened The light in her window was gone Oh-oh-oh
