(Jed Marum)

The last rays of day light still dancing on water
The summer heat rises from Copano Bay
I know as the sun slips below the horizon
I'll not see it brighten another day

Come and sit by my side for these moments
My sweet Thomasa, you've been good to me
I have done much in my lifetime for certain
But my saving grace has been your love for me

CHO:        Con este beso te digo adios.
Nunca llores por mi, mi amor
Nunca te lamentes por mí, mi amor

Porque mi alma vuela con Dios
En la luz de tu amor
Sobre las alas de tu amor.

BRDG:        Rio Nueces and my own San Antonio
Long may my children call you home

Born in the glens of the Barrow and Liffey
Near Balleygarrett on the Irish Sea
Blessed by the love of your South Texas family
My sweet Thomasa, you've been so good to me


This song was inspired by the story of Irish immigrant and Texas historical figure, John Power. The battle of Vinegar Hill was fought "in his backyard" when he was 10. He went on to become one of the most important figures in Texas and Mexican history. He married into a prominent Mexican family, learned the language and the culture. He died in his mid-70's.

An English version f the Spanish chorus says:

With this kiss that says goodbye
never cry for me, my love - never mourn for me, my love
For my soul flies ot God on the wings of your love
In the light of your love

A new video for this old song. I use it for Texas oriented promo efforts - but I still love the song and the recording, so I post it here to share.
