By age 10, had his first radio appearance on Harlingen's KGBS-AM radio station, where he sang a current hit "Paloma Querida", on KGBT in Harlingen, Texas. In January 1954, at the age of 16, Fender quit school and started a three-year hitch in the United States Marine Corps. However, he was court-martialed in August 1956 and was discharged with rank of Private (E-1). He returned to Texas and played nightclubs, bars and honky-tonks throughout the south, mostly to Latino audiences. In 1957, then known as El Bebop Kid, he released two songs to moderate success in Mexico and South America: Spanish-language versions of Elvis Presley's "Don't Be Cruel" (as "No Seas Cruel") and Harry Belafonte's "Jamaica Farewell." He also recorded his own Spanish version of Hank Williams's "Cold Cold Heart" under the title "Tu Frio Corazon". He became known for his rockabilly music and his cool persona as Eddie Con Los Shades. In 1958, the musician changed his name from Baldemar Huerta to Freddy Fender. He took Fender from the guitar and amplifier, and Freddy because the alliteration sounded good to him and it would,"...sell better with Gringos!" He then headed for California.

If he brings you happiness, Then I wish you all the best. It's your happiness, that matters most of all. But it he ever breaks your heart, If the teardrops ever start, I'll be there, before the next teardrop falls. Si te quiere de verdad, Y te da felicidad, Te deseo lo mas bueno pa' los dos. Pero si te hace llorar, A mi me puedes hablar. Y estare contigo cuando triste estas. I'll be there anytime you need me by your side. To drive away every teardrop that you cried. If he ever leaves you blue, Just remember, I love you, And I'll be there, before the next teardrop falls. And I'll be there, before the next teardrop falls..
