Lyrics

Hot chili peppers in the blistering sun Dust on my face and my cape Me and Magdalena on the run I think this time we shall escape Sold my guitar to the baker's son For a few crumbs and a place to hide But I can get another one And I'll play for Magdalena as we ride No llores, mi querida Dios nos vigila Soon the horse will take us to Durango Agárrame, mi vida Soon the desert will be gone Soon you will be dancing the fandango Past the Aztec ruins and the ghosts of our people Hoofbeats like castanets on stone At night I dream of bells in the village steeple Then I see the bloody face of Ramon Was it me that shot him down in the cantina Was it my hand that held the gun Come, let us fly, my Magdalena The dogs are barking and what's done is done No llores, mi querida Dios nos vigila Soon the horse will take us to Durango Agárrame, mi vida Soon the desert will be gone Soon you will be dancing the fandango At the corrida we'll sit in the shade And watch the young torero stand alone We'll drink tequila where our grandfathers stayed When they rode with Villa into Torreon Then the padre will recite the prayers of old In the little church this side of town I will wear new boots and an earring of gold You'll shine with diamonds in your wedding gown The way is long but the end is near Already the fiesta has begun The face of God will appear With His serpent eyes of obsidian No llores, mi querida Dios nos vigila Soon the horse will take us to Durango Agárrame, mi vida Soon the desert will be gone Soon you will be dancing the fandango Was that the thunder that I heard My head is vibrating, I feel a sharp pain Come sit by me, don't say a word Oh, can it be that I am slain Quick, Magdalena, take my gun Look up in the hills, that flash of light Aim well my little one We may not make it through the night No llores, mi querida Dios nos vigila Soon the horse will take us to Durango Agárrame, mi vida Soon the desert will be gone Soon you will be dancing the fandango
