Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Fado de una pátria perdida

This song was created for Game of Bands round 113 : "Once Upon a Time in the West"

Lyrics:

Guest appearances by Clint Eastwood, Pedro, Paco, Pablo & Escobar (voiced by /u/bandpuppy)

Original lyrics:
Mis sueños son esclavos de mi libertad
aquella condenada por la ambición
de un pueblo que en armas se levantó
y de mi patria México se separó.

Ahora que estoy lejos y miro atras,
quisiera regresar a mi lugar natal,
Oh Texas pronto volveré.

Existen recuerdos tan profundos
que nada ni nadie los borrará
aquellas planicies, cumbres rocosas
donde yo solía estar

Y ahora yo solo pienso en volver
a aquel lugar lejano donde yo reí y amé
Oh mi Texas mi amor

Y ahora yo solo pienso en volver
a aquel lugar lejano donde yo reí y amé
Oh mi Texas mi amor

No puedo estar lejos de ti
Tu tienes un lugar en mi corazón

No puedo estar lejos de ti
Te extraño oh Texas

Y ahora yo solo pienso en volver
a aquel lugar lejano donde yo reí y amé
Oh mi Texas mi amor


--//--
English version (loosely translated by /u/pdlourenco)

My dreams are slaves of my freedom
that was condemned by the ambition
of a people which raised arms
and from my homeland Mexico parted

Now that I am away and look back,
I wanted to return to my native land,
Oh Texas, I'll be back soon

There are memories so deep
that nothing or no one will erase them
those plains, rocky summits
where I used to be

And now I only think about returning
to that place far away where I laughed and loved
Oh my Texas my love

I can't be far from you
You have a place in my heart
I can't be far from you
I miss you oh Texas

And now I only think about returning
to that place far away where I laughed and loved
Oh my Texas my love
[Exit]
