She left a lipstick letter on the mirror shattered on the bathroom floor.
All I could put back together was never see me no more.
Took all her clothes but one red dress, the one she knows I like the best.
All I could do was clean up the mess, and wonder where she'd gone.
I had a sky-blue rag top Mustang, a 1964.
She drove it off into the night til it just wouldn't go no more.
She caught a ride on into town, bought some gas and laid the top down.
Then she burned that pony to the ground on the desert in New Mexico.
When Rita leaves, Rita's gone.
She gave me every chance a man could want.
I've never known a love so strong,
Or so crazy when she's been done wrong.
I put a call into her mamasita, back in El Paso.
She said she got the story from Rita on her way to Mexico.
Her mama knew I was taking it hard, said she was sorry about my car.
She said "You're lucky all she broke was your heart
You better just let her go."
I've never known a love so strong
She never gave me a chance to explain.
Hell I guess it doesn't much matter now anyway.
