Seeking The Assassin ( in the streets of Santiago )

Seeking The Assassin ( in the streets of Santiago )

 

Seeking the Assassin in the streets of Santiago- Aragon and I/Thought I caught his shadow near the university but how he flies/ And we walked that holy city up and down and round and round/I said, “Senor Aragon I fear that I am lost but you are found”

 

You caught him in your camera lens smoking marijuana in the square/But when we checked the photographs of course that cruel deceiver wasn’t there/He was drinking Margaritas in the Gallo D’oro Bar/With the ghosts of Joe O’Malley , Rory Gallagher and Hendrix on guitar

 

Chorus Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you/The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru/Buen Camino Aragon that rosy cross tattooed upon your arm/Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm

 

He knows I walked these sacred streets another life before /Laughing at the lady with the knife above the Asesino’s door/Today I wasn’t laughing as I knelt down like a child /On the cold cathedral floor the unbeliever crying as he smiled

 

Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you/The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru/Buen Camino Aragon the rosy cross tattooed upon your arm/Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm

 

Time is the Assassin –that is what you said/Waiting at Cape Finisterre or at the foot of some amigo’s bed/We bade farewell to Pilar, Galway Martin and Diego from Brazil/Though we went our separate ways I feel like I am walking with them still

 

Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you/The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru/Buen Camino Aragon the rosy cross tattooed upon your arm/Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm
