The Kingston Trio

The Kingston Trio is an American folk and pop music group that helped launch the folk revival of the late 1950s to late 1960s. The group started as a San Francisco Bay Area nightclub act with an original lineup of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds. It rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented sales of 33⅓ rpm long-playing record albums (LPs), and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S. more »

My name is Juan Hano de Castro 
My father was a Spanish Grandee 
But I won my wife in a card game 
To hell with those lords o'er the sea 

Well the South Coast is a wild coast and lonely 
You might win in a game at Jolon 
But a lion still rules the Barranca 
And a man there is always alone 

I played in a card game at Jolon 
I played with an outlaw named Juan 
And after I'd taken his money 
I staked all against his daughter Dawn 

I picked up the ace ... I had won her 
My heart it was down at my feet 
Jumped up to my throat in a hurry 
Like a young summer's day she was sweet. 

He opened the door to the kitchen 
And he called the girl out with a curse 
Saying "Take her, Goddamn her, you've won her 
She's yours now for better or worse" 

Her arms had to tighten around me 
As we rode down the hills to the south 
Not a word did I hear from her that day 
Nor a kiss from her pretty young mouth 

But that was a gay happy winter 
We carved on a cradle of pine 
By the fire in that neat little cabin 
And I sang with that gay wife of mine. 

That night I got hurt in a landslide 
Crushed hip and twice broken bone 
She saddled her pony like lightning 
And rode off for the doctor in Cholon 

The lion screamed in the Barranca 
Buck, he bolted and he fell on his side 
My young wife lay dead in the moonlight 
My heart died that night with my bride
