GUEST,Mark Lyr Req: Who Shot the Hole in My Sombrero? (18) RE: Lyr Req: Who Shot the Hole in My Sombrero? 09 May 08


I have a recording of Who Shot the Hole in My Sombrero sung by Johnny Boyle. Johnny was a regular entertainer at the White Sun Guest Ranch and other venues near Palm Springs in the 1950ties and 60ties. Johnny specialized in Polynesian, Mexican, and Western cowboy songs with a few Irish ones thrown in for good measure. Much of his repertoire was "politically incorrect" by today's delicate standards and he performed this one with a Mexican accent.
I have a LP record somewhere that includes the Sombrero song but can only put my hands on a cassette copy and mp3 rips.

Who shot the hole in my sombrero?
Who put the bullet through the hat?
Who shot the hole in my sombrero?
Who would do a terrible thing like that?

Was it Nita, or Lolita?
Are they mad because I find new senorita?
Is it Poncho, from the rancho?
Could he do this because I kiss his wife? Ha, Ha, Ha!

chorus

Was it Nita, or Lolita?
Are they mad because I give their jewels to Tina?
Is it Tico, from Tampico?
I sell him mine but he don't find the gold, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!

chorus

Was it Tony, that big phony?
Is he mad because I steal his pinto pony?
No can fi'ger, who pull 'a trigger, Ha, Ha, Ha!
It wasn't meant for accident I think...
Who shot the hole in my sombrero?
Who would do a terrible thing like that?
