Santiana gained the day!

Away Santiana

He gained the day at Monterey

All across the plains of Mexico!

 

Chorus

Heave a rope and away we’ll go

Heave away Santiana

Heave a rope and away we’ll go

All across the plains of Mexico!

 

Oh, Santiana’s men were brave,

Away Santiana

And many found a hero's grave.

All across the plains of Mexico!

 

Chorus

 

And Santiana's dead and gone

Away Santiana

And all the fighting has been done

All across the plains of Mexico!

 

Chorus

 

We dug his grave with a silver spade

Away, Santiana

And marked the spot where he was laid

All across the plains of Mexico

 

Chorus

 

Oh, Santiana we now must mourn,

Away Santiana

We buried him deep around Cape Horn.

All across the plains of Mexico!

 

Chorus

 

Yes, we buried him deep aroun Cape Horn

Away Santiana

And close to the spot where he was born

All across the plains of Mexico
