Todo envuelto en polvo te vi partir
De tu bella Córdoba hasta Madrid
Para demostrar lo que había en ti

Cuando tú llegaste la luz del sol
Con tu valentía se confundió
Y te vi reír loco de emoción

Pero allí nadie pudo ver él
Por qué reías así
Y una voz muy dentro de ti
Te gritó, "tú puedes vencer"

Entre sol y sombra luchabas tú
Con la claridad de tu juventud
Te sobraba ardor, te sobraba luz

Ni un momento el miedo te dominó
Y la muerte cerca de ti pasó
Porque como tú nadie se acercó

Pero al fin todo el mundo vio
El porqué reías así
Cuando oyó muy dentro de ti
Esa voz que ayer te alentó

Desde que la vida te vio nacer
Oh, Manuel Benítez que amarga fue
Hasta que te llamaron
El Cordobés
