I LOVE this song.
My favourite for years was the Ian & Sylvia version on their Four Strong Winds album.
Now, my favourite is the one by James Keelaghan and Oscar Lopez on their Compadres CD... James' clear vocals and Oscar's tasty guitar leads & fills. Done in the 1st person, they also use the original lyric "She was Mex and I was white" (instead of "They want him for a gambling flight"). And they sing "Won her heart; lost my own"
