[CHORUS] 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 He glanced back over his shoulder The posse was nowhere in sight He'd sent for Carmela to meet him At the banks of the Brazos tonight She was waiting and he kept the promise He'd made such a long time ago As he dropped the guns that she hated In the mighty Brazos below Cross the Brazos at Waco Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn Cross the Brazos at Waco I'll walk straight in old San Antone Then the night came alight with gunfire He knew that at last he'd been found As the ranger's badge shone brightly El bandito lay on the ground Carmela 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] I'm safe when I reach San Antone
