Marty Robbins

A White Sport Coat – Marty Robbins

A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I’m all dressed up for the dance.
A white sport coat and a pink carnation,
I’m all alone in romance.

(BRIDGE)

Once you told me long ago, to the prom with me
you’d go, now you’ve changed your mind,
it seems someone else will hold my dreams.
A white sport coat and a pink carnation, I’m in a blue, blue mood.

(BACK TO BRIDGE)

A Hundred And Sixty Acres – Marty Robbins

I got a hundred and sixty acres in the valley
Got a hundred and sixty acres of the best
Got an old stove there that’ll cook three square
And a bunk where I can lay me down to rest.

Up at dawn to greet the sun
I’ve forgotten what a care or worry means
Head for home when day is done
With my pocket money jinglin’ in my jeans.
I?ve got a hundred and sixty acres full of sunshine
Got a hundred and sixty million stars above
Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!

Up at dawn to greet the sun
I?ve forgotten what a care or worry means
Head for home when day is done
With my pocket money jinglin’ in my jeans.

I?ve got a hundred and sixty acres full of sunshine
Got a hundred and sixty million stars above
Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!
Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!

A Halfway Chance With You – Marty Robbins

If half of all the things you say, were true instead of lies
Then there’d be only half as many teardrops in my eyes
If half of all the dreams I dream, were ever to come true
Then in my heart I’d feel I had, A Half-way Chance With You.

If most of all the things I hear, were only half-way true
Then I’d be half-way happy dear and only half as blue
If You spent half the time with me, you spend with someone new
Then in my heart I’d feel I had, A Half-way Chance With You.

A half-way love is not enough, it’s always kiss an run
I just can’t fool my heart that way, I must have all, or none
If part-time love is all you want, or all you care to give
Why bother with the love at all, and only half-way live.

If some of all the tears that fall, were yours and not all mine
Then half the clouds would disappear and half the sun would shine
If things were only turned around and you were feelin’ blue
Then in my heart I’d feel I had, A Half-way Chance With you.

San Angelo – Marty Robbins

North of the border of Old Mexico
I rode one day to the cowtown of San Angelo
A hot sun was glowing, a hot breeze was blowing
Still not as warm as the lips that I waited to kiss


She sent a message a long time ago
Secora had promised to meet me in San Angelo
I was aware of the chance I was taking
I was an outlaw but great was my love for this girl

I must be with her I can’t stay away
Nights spent without her are lonely and so are the days
If it means death then I’ll have to chance it
Only a few minutes more and she’ll be at my side


At ten o’ clock in the morning
I tied my horse and I started to walk down the street
Where was Secora, had she forgotten
This was the day and the hour that she wanted to meet
But something is wrong with our plans and I fear death awaits me
Here on this hot dusty street.

Up on a housetop but still I can see
There hides a man with a rifle, it’s pointed at me
I might escape from the man with a rifle
But there are others just like him that I cannot see

Back of each window the click of a gun
Die if I stay and my love for her won’t let me run
Where is Secora, will my eyes see her
Then in a moment she runs from a door down the street

“Up on your horse”, she is crying
“Ride out of town it’s a trap and they’re waiting for you”
But if I ride out, she must ride with me
Then in a moment I know that our chances are gone
For a bullet is well on its way and it finds my Secora
She cries as she falls in my arms

Over and over her soft lips did say
“Now we’re together, I won’t let them take you away”
one little sigh, her little lips tremble
Then it was over, Secora had drifted away

Tears dim my vision but plainly I see
The ranger that killed her is standing there waiting for me
I rise to meet him, my one thought it beat him
He deserves death and I swear that this ranger will die

I beat his draw and I shot him
Shot him six times just as fast as the bullets could fly
My gun is empty or more I would shoot him
Now there are others just like him that want me to die
Their bullets are coming my way, how they hurt when they hit me
The pain makes me fall to the ground.

Gone is my strength, just the will left to fight
I hear the sound of the lead as it robs me of life
If I must die, let me find Secora
Let me hold on to her hand for the few moments left

Blindly I search and it isn’t in vain
I touch the soft velvet hand and it eases the pain
Life is no more but we’re together
Even in death she’s my lover,
it’s over,
goodbye

A Castle In The Sky – Marty Robbins

I dreamed that we were livin’ in A Castle In The Sky
A world of make believe, a dream for you and I
For one time in my lifetime, I was sure about your love
I held you in my Castle In The Sky.

Then from another world a stranger came one day
I begged you not to leave, but you left any-way
I saw my castle tumble back to earth and there was I
With mem’ries of My Castle In The Sky.

The trouble that we’re havin’, does it mean there’s someone new
Or am I just bothered by the thought of losing you
Will someone come and take you, will I lose you by and by
Like I lost you in my Castle In The Sky.

If we should ever part, the world for me would end
How could I tell my heart, I only lost a friend
Be faithful, don’t forsake me, never leave and say goodbye
Like you left me in my Castle In The Sky.
