Verse 2

Bells ring out on the chapel steeple
A priest prepares to say mass
The sad congregation come tierd and hungry
To pray that the troubles will pass
Meanwhile the sun rises over the dusty streets
Where his body was found
Flies and mosquitoes are drinking from pools of blood
Where the crowd gathers round.


out on the ranch the rich mans preparing
to go for his morning ride
they've saddled his horse out in the corral
he walks out full of pride
he looks like a cowboy from one of those pictures
a president made in the past
peasants in rags, they stand back for they know
that enrico gallops fast

Over the soul of El Salvador.
