Message to Garcia
by David Olney



Take a message to Garcia. Give him my regards
And my regrets that I could not be there myself
If he asks how I escaped in the hour before my death
Tell him he'd do well to ask his wife
She's the one who lured the guards away
And left me with the key just like we planned
For a woman will be reckless in matters of the heart
She'll forsake a king and die for a bandit

Take a message to Garcia. Ask him how it feels
To go from the hunter to the hunted
The nightmare's all too true and his fears are all too real
There's nowhere he can turn to for comfort
Ask him if his sleep is ever troubled
And does he dream as I have for so long
And does he think with sorrow on his women and his wealth
Knowing one day soon they'll all be gone

Take a message to Garcia. Say there's danger on the streets
That he will know as I have known it
Tell him to beware of friend as well as foe
They are scheming though their smiles will never show it
Tell him I regard him as a brother
Though one of us must die when we next meet
Take a message to Garcia. The tables now have turned
And his empire is crumbling at his feet
