The Bandit

This song is by Tex Ritter and appears on the album Songs from the Western Screen (1958) and on the compilation album Love You Big as Texas (1969).

Olé, a cangachero, your band it's for Brazil
Olé, he is bandit, the band it's for Brazil

I'm the quickest on the trigger, when I shoot I shoot to kill
I'm a hero down in Rio, where they talk about me still
Once I robbed a big ranchero, who was rich beyond compare
And to ransom held his daughter, she was young and she was fair

Olé, a cangachero, your band it's for Brazil
Olé, he is bandit, the band it's for Brazil

She was sweet and she was tender, there was love light in her eyes
In my arms she soon surrendered, very much to my surprise
I refused her father's ransom and I kept the greater prize
Now at night we ride together 'neath the blue Brazilian sky

Adios, your band it's for Brazil
Adios a cangachero, your band it's for Brazil
