“Out in the West Texas town of El Paso,” Marty Robbins sang in his hit 1960 record El Paso, “I fell in love with a Mexican girl.”

The popular Tex-Mex corrido inspired Houston-born musician H.B. Barnum to tell his own story of lost love.

The first verse sounds familiar somehow, as Barnum sings, “Out in the West L.A. town of Azusa, there is a café that I like a lot.”
