lyrics

Just one more glance
One final sigh before I turn the corner
Your olive groves stretch out before me, Andalucia
Your shimmering towers
Your trembling fountains and your quiet courtyards
I turn my back on all the memories, Andalucia

For seven centuries
We shared a land, we share our learning
We kept the flame of tolerance burning, Andalucia
Now in the distance
I see the riders of the inquisition
I see the soldiers of superstition. Andalucia

Against the guns, against ignorance
I brought you gardens
Against the burning summer sun
I brought you fountains

I slip away now
No more for me the mesquita in Cordoba
No more the palaces of the Alhambra, Andalucia
You will not see me
You will not read about me in your schoolbook history
But you will hear me sighing in the segurya, Andalucia
