“Pablo Sanchez”: A Corrido by Rickey Pittman

I am proud to announce the release of my newest original single, “Pablo Sanchez.” The song was engineered by Red Lion Technologies in Monroe, Louisiana. The song is a ballad, a corrido, telling the true story of a fourteen-year-old boy who fought in Pancho Villa’s Army. He was captured and sentenced to be hanged, but a soldier in the enemy army knew him and his family and helped Pablo escape. Pablo and his family later moved to McAllen Texas. He was known to have a good work ethic and to be one didn’t believe in handouts.  He was a good father and friend.  He would take his shirt off his back if it would help someone.  He was close to his mother and his brothers. His children adored him. His descendants operate Maria’s Restaurant in McAllen, Texas.  revised pablo cover (1)
