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 fathers 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.
