cetmst Lyr Req: Who Shot the Hole in My Sombrero? (18) Lyr Add: WHO SHOT THE HOLE IN MY SOMBRERO? 08 Sep 06

Transcribed from a tape made from a Mary Cliff Traditions program, sung by Rex Allen. I have some problem with his accent in the last verse:

Who shot the hole in my sombrero ?
Who put the bullet through the hat ?
Who shot the hole in my sombrero ?
Who could do a terrible thing like that ?

Was it Nita, or Lolita ?
Are they did it 'cause I find a new senorita ?
Was it Pancho, from the rancho ?
Did he do this 'cause I kiss his wife ?

I think I get my horse and gallop far away,
The bullets flying everywhere, it is not safe to stay.
Some hombre sure is mad at me so I don't hang around,
The next hole that the bullet makes, it may be farther down.


Was it Nina, or Rosina ?
Are they mad 'cause I give all their jewels to Tina ?
Was it Chico, from Tampico ?
I sell him mine but he no find the gold.


Was it Tony, ------ - ony ?
Is he mad because I stole his pinto pony ?
(No consider) to pull the trigger.
It was not mean for accident, I theenk.
