ADIOS AMIGO

Written by Ralph Freed and Jerry Livingston

As recorded by Jim Reeves November 21, 1961)

 

Adios amigo, adios my friend

The road we have travelled has come to an end

When two love the same love, one love has to lose

And it's you who she longs for, it's you she will choose


Adios compadre, what must be must be

Remember to name one muchacho for me

I ride to the Rio, where my life I must spend

Adios amigo, adios my friend


Adios compadre, let us shed no tears

May all your mañanas bring joy through the years

Away from these mem'ries, my life I must spend

Adios amigo, adios my friend
