Ooh, good one.  Spoiler alert: This song reminds me of the movie Book of Eli.

Everyone has probably heard these songs, at very least the first one, as they are some of Marty Robbins's more popular works, but I thought I'd post them all together.  The first tells the basic version of the story, from the first person perspective of the cowboy involved.  The second tells the story in third person, but from the point of view of the "Mexican maiden".  The third song is sort of the author's perspective on the songs and the story and what it meant to him personally.  Each song in the El Paso trilogy is good by itself, but I love the interaction of the songs with each other, being able to hear the story from the different points of view.

Member - thanks for sharing those songs. I was very familiar with Marty's "El Paso". I really enjoy old music ... but I had never heard of the other 2 - very nice! It took me a few days to have time to listen to each  one, but they were totally worth it. Thanks!!

How amazing the talent was during that era ... !

You're welcome, Alan.  I'm glad you liked them.  I only started listening to music from the 60's recently, and I too am amazed at the talent of this time period.  There are many singers today who are popular who don't really have that good of voices and don't have any songwriting talent.  Back then, it seems like more people who were musicians were really truly gifted.  Although, perhaps it's just the fact the only the really good singers and bands are still remembered today, and all the ones who weren't very good have just been lost to time. 

Ben Framed:
Marty Robbins was truly gifted, and possessed the art of transferring this gift to pen and paper. His imagination was out of the roof, and had the talent to put it to music. One of his sons is a Minister and also has a good voice.  I have heard him sing and really like his style. There are many of Martys songs that I like but the most powerful, in my opinion, is the one that I posted in post 1. I suppose the reason that I choose it is because he gives God Glory in it. 
Hum I had better be careful or I may start sounding like a music critic  :shocked:
Member, all three of the songs that you posted, just perviously, would make a great theme for an outstanding western, if we were hooked up with the right people.
