Mustang Gray and the Belle of Monterey by Andy Thomas
Once he was taken prisoner
bound in chains upon the way.
He wore the yoke of bondage
through the streets of Monterey.
A senorita loved him,
and followed by his side.
She opened the gates and gave to him
her father’s stud to ride.
God bless the senorita,
‘The Belle of Monterey’.
She opened wide its prison door
And let him ride away.
From the song “Mustang Gray”, written about a real, though hardly romantic, Texas Ranger.
