Haven't seen too many videos with a good quality version of this song, so I thought I'd put together a video with lyrics. Enjoy! Pictures are Copyrighted to their respected owners. Video made by me. [EDIT]: I apologize for a few of the words being wrong in the video, but I tried my best. I hope you all can enjoy it anyways!

Back in 1967, when The Seekers returned home to Australia for a visit, little did they know that their free concert at the Myer Music Bowl in their home town of Melbourne would break attendance records for the Southern hemisphere and TV ratings records for Australia! The concert forms part of the DVD 'The Seekers at Home and Down Under'. The group sang live on the day, but because no promo video existed for the original (1966) hit version of the song, it is this which I've used for the audio, extending the video to include the middle 8 bars. The DVD 'The Legendary TV Specials' with the live audio, (along with all The Seekers' hits and much more) is available to buy & recently spent several weeks at #1! You can see the original clip here for comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-GApOqzgWM Judith Durham's wonderful new CD, 'So Much More' is also available - http://www.theseekers.com.au/merchandise More of these videos on the playlists below: Best of the 60s in stereo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSxwqBJLU8A&list=PL3D56CE5573B8DB1E Reunion Performances: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOlPCmFG2pc&list=PL2D64FCB8BC9B767C The Seekers concluded their Golden Jubilee tour in New Zealand in November 2014, and Judith Durham began her farewell tour there in April 2016.

This is song 2 of the El Paso trilogy... In 1966, Robbins recorded "Feleena (From El Paso)", telling the life story of Feleena, the "Mexican girl" from "El Paso", in a third-person narrative Part 1... "El Paso" 1959 http://youtu.be/7UVVS5-9HvA Part 3... "El Paso City" 1976 http://youtu.be/RqT6rI1Rm08 ****Lyrics**** Out in New Mexico, many long years ago There in a shack on the desert, one night in a storm Amid streaks of lightnin' and loud desert thunder To a young Mexican couple, a baby was born Just as the baby cried, thunder and lightnin' died Moon gave it's light to the world and the stars did the same Mother and father, both proud of the daughter That Heaven had sent them, Feleena was this baby's name When she was seventeen, bothered by crazy dreams She ran away from the shack and left them to roam Father and mother, both asked one another What made her run away, what made Feleena leave home Tired of the desert nights, fatherly grieved to strife She ran away late one night in the moon's golden gleam She didn't know where she'd go but she'd get there And she would find happiness if she would follow her dream After she ran away, she went to Santa Fe And in the year that she stayed there, she learned about life In just a little while she learned that with a smile She could have pretty clothes, she could be any man's wife Rich men romanced her, they dined and they danced her She understood men and she treated them all just the same A form that was fine and rare, dark shining glossy hair Lovely to look at, Feleena was this woman's name Restless in Santa Fe, she had to get away To any town where the lights had a much brighter glow One cowboy mentioned the town of El Paso They never stopped dancin' and money like whiskey would flow She bought one way a ticket from Santa Fe Three days and nights on a stage with a rest now and then She didn't mind that she knew she would find that Her new life would be more exciting than where she had been The stage made it's last stop, up there on the mountain top To let her see all the lights at the foot of the hill Her world was brighter and deep down inside her An uncontrolled beating her young heart just wouldn't be still She got a hotel room at the Lily Belle Quickly she changed to a form fitting black satin dress Every man stopped to stare, at this form fine and rare Even the women remarked of the charm she possessed Dancin' and laughter, was what she was after And Rosa's Cantina had lights with love in the gleam That's what she hunted and that's what she wanted Rosa's was one place, a nice girl would never be seen It was the same way, it was back in Santa Fe Men would make fools of themselves at the thought of romance Rosa took heed of the place was in need of This kind of excitement, so she paid Feleena to dance A year passed and maybe more and then through the swingin' doors Came a young cowboy so tall and so handsomely dressed This one was new in town, hadn't been seen around He was so different, he wasn't like all of the rest Feleena danced close to him, then threw a rose to him Quickly he walked to her table and there he sat down And in a day or so, wherever folks would go They'd see this young cowboy, showin' Feleena the town Six weeks he went with her, each minute spent with her But he was insanely jealous of glances she'd give Inside he was a hurtin', from all of her flirtin' That was her nature and that was the way that she lived She flirted one night, it started a gun fight And after the smoke cleared away on the floor lay a man Feleena's young lover had shot down another And he had to leave there, so out through the back door he ran The next day at five o'clock, she heart a rifle shot Quickly she ran to the door that was facin' the pass She saw her cowboy, her wild ridin' cowboy Low in the saddle, her cowboy was ridin' in fast She ran to meet him to kiss and to greet him He saw her and motioned her back with a wave of his hand Bullets were flyin', Feleena was cryin' As she saw him fall from the saddle and into the sand Feleena knelt near him to hold and to hear him When she felt the warm blood that flowed from the wound in his side He raised to kiss her and she heard him whisper "Never forget me, Feleena it's over, goodbye" Quickly she grabbed for the six gun that he wore And screamin' in anger and placin' the gun to her breast Bury us both deep and maybe we'll find peace And pullin' the trigger, she fell 'cross the dead cowboy's chest Out in El Paso, whenever the wind blows If you listen closely at night, you'll hear in the wind A woman is cryin', it's not the wind sighin' Old timer's tell you, Feleena is callin' for him You'll hear them talkin' and you'll hear them walkin' You'll hear them laugh and you'll look but there's no one around Don't be alarmed, there is really no harm there It's only the young cowboy, showin' Feleena the town

The well famed, (I feel over-rated in-comparison to some of his other songs) Taxi, In original form The best live version I'm aware of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAyhh5sEbrk "I saw Harry Chapin and his band perform this song live on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The audience gave them a thunderous, standing ovation. Carson was so impressed he invited Chapin back the next night for an encore. One of the great story-song writers." -Reddalestew ----- "It was raining hard in 'Frisco, I needed one more fare to make my night. A lady up ahead waved to flag me down, She got in at the light. Oh, where you going to, my lady blue, It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain. She just looked out the window, and said "Sixteen Parkside Lane". Something about her was familiar I could swear I'd seen her face before, But she said, "I'm sure you're mistaken" And she didn't say anything more. It took a while, but she looked in the mirror, And she glanced at the license for my name. A smile seemed to come to her slowly, It was a sad smile, just the same. And she said, "How are you Harry?" I said, "How are you Sue? Through the too many miles and the too little smiles I still remember you." It was somewhere in a fairy tale, I used to take her home in my car. We learned about love in the back of the Dodge, The lesson hadn't gone too far. You see, she was gonna be an actress, And I was gonna learn to fly. She took off to find the footlights, And I took off to find the sky. Oh, I've got something inside me, To drive a princess blind. There's a wild man, wizard, He's hiding in me, illuminating my mind. Oh, I've got something inside me, Not what my life's about, Cause I've been letting my outside tide me, Over 'till my time, runs out. Baby's so high that she's skying, Yes she's flying, afraid to fall. I'll tell you why baby's crying, Cause she's dying, aren't we all. There was not much more for us to talk about, Whatever we had once was gone. So I turned my cab into the driveway, Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns. And she said we must get together, But I knew it'd never be arranged. And she handed me twenty dollars, For a two fifty fare, she said "Harry, keep the change." Well another man might have been angry, And another man might have been hurt, But another man never would have let her go... I stashed the bill in my shirt. And she walked away in silence, It's strange, how you never know, But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for, Such a long, long time ago. You see, she was gonna be an actress And I was gonna learn to fly. She took off to find the footlights, And I took off for the sky. And here, she's acting happy, Inside her handsome home. And me, I'm flying in my taxi, Taking tips, and getting stoned, I go flying so high, when I'm stoned." /Lyrics from The Harry Chapin Archive at Harrychapin.com\
