Apache Tears Lyrics by Johnny Cash

Apache Tears Lyrics by Johnny Cash

Hoof prints and foot prints deep ruts the wagons made

The victor and the loser came by here

No head stones but these bones bring Mascalero death moans

Clan kinship followed the mother's side of the family. The children grew up in the mother's house, and it was the duty of an uncle on the mother's side to teach the boys how to…
