Last Kiss With Paulita

03:30

Lyrics

Down in Lincoln County 

Back in 1883

They got William Bonney

For murder in the worst degree

Some say he was a hero

Just a vigilante man

Hotter than a pistol

Mean as a crocodile

Until he met sweet Pualita

Who nearly killed him with her smile

Before there was a verdict

He only had one request

 

Un beso mas de Paulita

There gonna hang me in the morning

Un beso mas de Paulita

The sun's coming fast

 

Billy spoke to the judge

He said what's gonna be my fine?

Fifty long years, or will you take my young life?

Then the judges gavel fell

And a chill crawled up his spine

 

Un beso mas de Paulita

There gonna hang me in the morning

Un beso mas de Paulita

The sun's coming fast

 

They finally got his number

And they're gonna make him pay for what he did

And so goes the legend of Pat Garrett and the Kid

He'll make a fine example

A man ain't nothing but a man

Then on that fateful morning when they go to hang the Kid 

Billy jumped the shotgun 

And Billy hit the skids

Some say he's still riding

Still looking for that kiss

 

Un beso mas de Paulita

There gonna hang me in the morning

Un beso mas de Paulita

The sun's coming fast

 

Un beso mas de Paulita

Un beso mas de Paulita

Give me one last kiss from Paulita

Lord, the sun's coming up fast
