Juanita Jones    (1965)

Juanita Carmela Garcia
Down in Juarez, Mexico
Her dark flashing eyes hide a secret
She'll never let anyone know

All of the boys down in Juarez
Won't leave Juanita alone
Cause they don't know that Juanita Garcia
Is really Juanita Jones

One day from north of the border
An outlaw rode into town
He won the heart of Juanita
And they hid where they'd never be found

She knew that she shouldn't love him
He never could make her a home
But still they married in secret
And he changed her name to Juanita Jones

Then down from El Paso a sheriff's posse caught him when he was alone
They filled him with lead and they left him for dead
But he managed to make it back home
He said Juanita please listen, for I know that I'm losing my life
If you want to hold up your head in this town don't let them know you're my wife

Juanita Carmela Garcia
Down in Juarez, Mexico
Her dark flashing eyes hide a secret
She'll never let anyone know

All of the boys down in Juarez
Won't leave Juanita alone
Cause they don't know that Juanita Garcia
Is really Juanita Jones

Oh, they don't know that Juanita Garcia is really Juanita Jones
