lirik lagu veracruz – warren zevon

“veracruz”

i heard woodrow wilson’s guns
i heard maria crying
late last night i heard the news
that veracruz was dying
veracruz was dying

someone called maria’s name
i swear it was my father’s voice
saying, “if you stay you’ll all be slain
you must leave now – you have no choice
take the servants and ride west
keep the child close to your chest
when the american troops withdraw
let zapata take the rest”

i heard woodrow wilson’s guns
i heard maria calling
saying, “veracruz is dying
and cuernavaca’s falling”

aquel dia yo jure (on that day i swore)
hacia el puerto volvere (to the port i will return)
aunque el destino cambio mi vida (even though destiny changed my life)
en veracruz morire (in veracruz i shall die)
aquel dia yo jure (on that day i swore)

i heard woodrow wilson’s guns
i heard them in the harbor
saying, “veracruz is dying”
