About Santiano

"Santiano" is a 1961 song, inspired by the sea shanty "Santianna", which uses the same tune. The song tells of a ship from Saint Malo bound to San Francisco, which is described as a place of great wealth. The French language version was popularized first in the 1960s by Hugues Aufray.

C'est un fameux trois-mâts, fin comme un oiseau
(Hissez haut! Santiano!)
Dix-huit nœuds, quatre cents tonneaux
Je suis fier d'y être matelot

Tiens bon la vague et tiens bon le vent
Hissez haut! Santiano!
Si Dieu veut, toujours droit devant
(Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco)

Je pars pour de longs mois en laissant Margot
(Hissez haut! Santiano!)
D'y penser, j'avais le cœur gros
(En doublant les feux de Saint Malo)

Tiens bon la vague et tiens bon le vent
Hissez haut! Hissez haut! Santiano!
Si Dieu veut, toujours droit devant
(Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco)

On prétend que là-bas, l'argent coule à flots
(Hissez haut! Santiano!)
On trouve l'or au fond des ruisseaux
(J'en ramènerai plusieurs lingots)

Tiens bon la vague et tiens bon le vent
Hissez haut! Hissez haut! Santiano!
Si Dieu veut, toujours droit devant
(Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco)

Un jour je reviendrai, chargé de cadeaux
Hissez haut! Santiano!
Au pays, j'irai voir Margot
(À son doigt, je passerai l'anneau)

Tiens bon le cap et tiens bon le flot
Hissez haut! Hissez haut! Santiano!
Sur la mer qui fait le gros dos
Nous irons jusqu'à San Fran-cis-co

He was the first French singer to cover Bob Dylan's works. Aufray knew Dylan and his work from his time in New York, as well as from record shops, and his translations capture the rawness of the original songs.
