Santiana

Santiana, Santiana
Oh! Santiana gained the day,
Away, (away), Santiana!
Oh! Santiana gained the day,.
All across the plains of Mexico!

Refrein
Heave her up, and away we’ll go
Away, (away), Santiana!
Heave her up, and away we’ll go
All across the plains of Mexico!

He gained the day at Molly-Del-Rey,
Away, (away), Santiana!
And General Taylor ran away.
All across the plains of Mexico!

Refrein:
Santiana’s men were brave,
Away, away, Santiana!
Many found a soldier’s grave.
All across the plains of Mexico!

Refrein:
Heave her up, and away we’ll go
Heave away, Santiana!
Heave her up, and away we’ll go
All across the plains of Mexico!

’t Was on the fields of Molley del Rey,
Away, away, Santiana!
Old Santy lost his leg that day
All across the plains of Mexico!

Refrein

Now Santianna’s dead and gone
Away, (away), Santiana!
and all the fighting has been done
All across the plains of Mexico!

Refrein

We’ll dig his grave with a silver spade,
Away, away, Santiana!
And mark the spot where he was laid.
All across the plains of Mexico
