    Lyrics

    Listen, shh
    Listen, there, it's playing again
    Gringo's guitar playing songs of desire
    Are sung by the haunted wind

    Down in Nualo, Laredo
    On the border of ol' Mexico
    There's a legend they tell of a cowboy
    A tall Texas drover named Joe

    But the Braseros just call him Gringo
    The Gringo who played the guitar
    To the Mexican girl that he loved so
    'Neath the misty Mexico star

    Listen, shh
    Listen, there, it's playing again
    Gringo's guitar playing songs of desire
    Are sung by the haunted wind

    He sang of the day when they'd marry
    When the round-up was over an' through
    And great were the plans for their wedding
    And for dreams they dreamed would come true

    But he never came back from the round-up
    A stampeding herd ran him down
    But, sometimes, strange and beautiful music
    Of a guitar is heard through the town

    Listen, shh
    Listen, there, it's playing again
    Gringo's guitar playing songs of desire
    Are sung by the haunted wind
