Hot chili peppers in the blistering sun
Dust on my face an' my cape
Me an' Magdelena on the run
I think this time we shall escape.

Sold my guitar to the baker's son
For a few crumbs an' a place to hide
But i can get another one
An' i'll play for Magdelena as we ride.

No llores mi querida
Dìos nos vigila
Soon the horse will take us to Durango.
Agarrame mi vida
Soon the desert wil be gone
Soon you will be dancin' the fandango.

Past the aztec ruins an' the ghost of our people
Hoofbeats like castanets on stone
At night i dreamed 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 Magdelena
The dogs are barkin' an' what's done is done.

No llores mi querida
Dìos nos vigila
Soon the horse will take us to Durango
Agarrame mi vida
Soon the desert wil be gone
Soon you will be dancin' the fandango.

At the corrida we'll sit in the shade
An' watch the young torero stand alone
We'll drink tequila where our grandfathers stayed
When they rode with Villa into Toreon.

Then the padre will recite the prayers of old
In the little church this side of town
I will wear new boots an' 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
Dìos nos vigila
Soon the horse will take us to Durango
Agarrame mi vida
Soon the desert wil be gone
Soon you will be dancin' 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 Magdelena take my gun
Look up in the hills that flash of light
Aim well, my little one
We may not make it thru the night.

No llores mi querida
Dìos nos vigila
Soon the horse will take us to Durango
Agarrame mi vida
Soon the desert wil be gone
Soon you will be dancin' the fandango.  up
