lyrics

Oh, it was a dark time in Spain

Storm clouds always gather thick before the rain

and in his hands he found a gun, and to his friends he was the one

he was the peoples' favorite son, he fought on behalf them

Bullets flying towards the priest, and the beast it gnashed its teeth

chased the friends into the street and to the world they were released



Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, you gave it a try

You'll come back to us when its time

Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, when you close your eyes,

all your people are there inside



Hijos del Pueblo, more precious than a pearl

running fugitive from the world

Back at home the jackboots fall, and the friends they heed the call

Slip back in, commence the brawl, sent straight to the prison walls



Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, it’s been a good ride

You'll come back to us when it’s time

Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, when you close your eyes,

all your people are there inside



Spanish people go retrieve your stolen sons and daughters

The fascists in the barracks are ready for the slaughter

The anarchists unleash their guns, the workers rise, the fascists run

and giving chase the people come, militia of revolution



Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, you live by the gun

You'll come back to us, when we've won

Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, under the sun

grows the sweet fruits of revolution



The world ignores the cries of the Spanish people

Them reds and anarchists are burning down the steeples

November storm clouds come around, and fascist bombs break Madrid's ground

but when our hero comes to town, Buenaventura is shot down



Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, you gave it a try

You'll come back to us when its time.

Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, the day that you died

all your people laid down and cried



Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, it’s been a good ride

You'll come back to us when it’s time

Buenas Noches, Buenaventura, the day that you died

all your people laid down and cried
