La Suerte de los Tontos
© 2004 Fajita Musik

There was purple, there was gold, there was beauty in the sunset
'twas a wonder to behold and she hoped that he would not forget
Texas days and Texas nights, in his arms she cried a storm of tears
As they watched the Rio Grande, drawing heart-shapes in the sand
He took her by the hand, saying "I will always love you"

Then he went off to fight, cause he felt it was right
And his papa was proud and his ma prayed out loud
But his sweetheart was sad and she said, "come home pronto
You're an unlucky fool, so Šla suerte de los tontos"

She could not begin to see why he felt it was his duty
And she begged for him to stay, begged him "please don't join the army"
But his noble spirit bristled at the news of great injustice wrought
And he did just what she feared, he went down and volunteered
With his guns and bandolier as she squeezed off one last snapshot

and he went off to fight, cause he felt it was right
And his papa was proud and his ma prayed out loud
But his sweetheart was sad and she said, "come home pronto
Vaya con dios Šla suerte de los tontos"

There was black and there was white, there was dust upon the picture
And she keeps it in a stack with the letters that he sent her
Texas days and Texas nights, in her arms the baby cries his tears
And she joins him for awhile, takes the picture from the pile
And mourns the man with his sweet smile, saying "I will always love you"

'cause he went off to fight, cause he felt it was right
And his papa was proud and his ma cried out loud
and his sweetheart was sad, saying "send him home pronto
what an unlucky fool, so Šla suerte de los tontos
Vaya con dios Šla suerte de los tontos"
