    Default El Paso



    Marty Robbins is my all-time favorite country singer. Hope you like my rendition!

    That was excellent John. You nailed the intro.

    I had an uncle who was from El Paso. I wonder if he was in the posse...

    You did Marty proud with this wonderful version!

    Thanks, Luke! I knew I couldn't do this song without attempting the intro!

    Thanks, rainbow21! Heh heh, could be! I read that stealing a horse was also a hanging offense, so the protagonist in this song was really in trouble!

    Thanks, Steedy! You're very kind! I wish I could have replicated Grady Martin's outstanding flamenco style playing throughout the song. He also recorded an instrumental version of the song that's great!

    Wonderful job on playing and singing John. I always enjoy your rendition of your contributions to this forum. I also appreciated your T shirt of horses. Fantastic video for which I am glad I watched. Thank you sir for sharing with us all.

    Wow. Just wow. El Paso is one of the best ballads ever written, and you did it proud. Great job, John! Thanks for the memories ... once again. :-)
