SANTIANA

Oh, Santiana gain'd the day!
Away Santiana!
Oh, Santiana gain'd the day!
All across the plains of Mexico!

He gained the day at Molley-Del-Rey (Monterey),
An' General Taylor ran away.

All of his men were brave & true,
Every soldier brave and true.

Oh, Santiana fought for fame,
Oh, Santiana gained a name.

An' Zacharias Taylor ran away,
He ran away at Molley-Del-Rey.

Santiana's men were brave,
Many found a soldier's grave.

`Twas a fierce & bitter strife,
Hand to hand they fought for life.

An' Santiana's name is known,
What a man can do was shown.

Oh, Santiana fought for his gold,
What deeds he did have oft been told.

`twas on the field of Molley-Del-Rey,
Santiana lost a leg that day.

Oh, Santiana's day is o'er,
Santiana will fight no more.

Oh, Santiana's gone away,
Far from the field of Molley-Del-Rey.

Oh, Santiana now we mourn,
We left him buried off Cape Horn.
