Subject: Lyr Add: NEW SILVER BELLS (Webb Pierce)
Hi Ralph & Dale....Talk about an OLDIE.....Decca DL 8129

- Recorded by Webb Pierce
Words and music by Webb Pierce and Owen Perry

I lingered down in mexico; And met a Senorita there
Who wore the Silver Bells; Bright shining Silver Bells; That chimed as we danced
They seemed to say I love you so; As we were dancing to and fro
Beneath the candle glow; That starlit night when we found romance.

Now the lovelight was shining in her Spanish eyes
*Fell in paradise - I thought it all would die
Some next Fiesta - I swore that we would meet again
Knowin' there and then - I'd ne'er return

And now I live in memory and though it's much too late
To change the foolish part I played
To leave my brown eyed maid; With Silver Bells.

*Note. Not too sure of this line???
