Tom Russell - Gallo Del Cielo
Intro C Dm G C verse 1 Dm Carlos Zaragoza left his home in Casas Grandes when the moon was full G C No money in his pocket, just a locket of his sister framed in gold Dm He rode into El Sueco, stole a rooster called Gallo Del Cielo G F G C Then he swam the Rio Grande with that fighter nestled deep beneath his arm verse 2 Dm El Gallo Del Cielo was a rooster born in heaven, so the legends say G C His wings they had been broken, he had one eye rolling crazy in his head Dm And he'd fought a hundred fights, and the legends say that one night near El Sueco G F G C They'd fought Gallo seven times, and seven times he'd left brave roosters deadverse 3 Dm Outside of San Diego, in the onion fields of Paco Monteverde G C The Pride of San Diego lay sleeping on a fancy bed of silk Dm And they laughed when Zaragoza pulled the one-eyed del Cielo from beneath his coat G F G C But they cried when Zaragoza walked away with a thousand dollar billF G Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in San Antonio Dm G Dm G I have 27 dollars and the good luck of your picture framed in gold F G Tonight I'll put it all on the fighting spurs of Gallo Del Cielo Dm G F G C And then I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long agoverse 4 Dm Now the moon has gone to hiding and the lantern light spills shadows on a fighting sand G C Where a wicked black named Zorro faces Gallo del Cielo in the night Dm But Carlos Zaragoza fears the tiny crack that runs across his rooster's beak G F G C And he fears he has lost the fifty thousand dollars riding on the fightF G Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in Santa Barbara Dm G Dm G I have fifteen hundred dollars and the good luck of your picture framed in gold F G Tonight I'll put it all on the fighting spurs of Gallo Del Cielo Dm G F G C And then I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long agoVerse 5 Dm Then the signal it was given, and the cocks rose together far above the sand G C El Gallo del Cielo sunk a gaff into Zorro's shiny breast Dm They were separated quickly but they rose and fought each other thirty-seven times G F G C And the legends say that everyone agreed that del Cielo fought the best Verse 6 Dm Then the screams of Zaragoza filled the night outside the town of Santa Clara G C As the beak of del Cielo lay broken like a shell within his hand Dm And they say that Zaragoza screamed a curse upon the bones of Pancho Villa G F G C When Zorro rose up one last time and drove del Cielo through the sandF G Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in Santa Clara Dm G Dm G Yes, the money's on the table, I am holding to your good luck framed in gold F G And everything we've dreamed of is riding on the spurs of Del Cielo Dm G F G C I pray that I'll return to buy the land Villa stole from father long agoVerse 7 F G Do the rivers still run muddy outside of my beloved Casas Grandes? Dm G Dm G Does the scar upon my brother's face turn red when he hears mention of my name? F G Do the people of El Sueco curse the theft of Gallo del Cielo? Dm G F G C Well, tell my family not to worry, I will not return to cause them shame Outro C Dm G CF G Hola, my Theresa, I am thinking of you now in San Francisco Dm G Dm G I have no money in my pocket, I no longer have your good luck framed in gold F G I buried it last evening with the bones of my beloved Del Cielo Dm G F G C And I'll not return to buy the land Villa stole from father long ago
