Seeking the Assassin in the streets of Santiago - Aragon and I
Thought I caught his shadow near the university but how he flies
And we walked that holy city up and down and round and round
I said, “Senor Aragon I fear that I am lost but you are found”
 
You caught him in your camera lens smoking marijuana in the square
But when we checked the photographs of course that cruel deceiver wasn’t there
He was drinking Margaritas in the Gallo D’oro Bar
With the ghosts of Joe O’Malley, Rory Gallagher and Hendrix on guitar
 
Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you
The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru
Buen Camino Aragon that rosy cross tattooed upon your arm
Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm
 
He knows I walked these sacred streets another life before
Laughing at the lady with the knife above the Asesino’s door
Today I wasn’t laughing as I knelt down like a child
On the cold cathedral floor the unbeliever crying as he smiled
 
Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you
The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru
Buen Camino Aragon the rosy cross tattooed upon your arm
Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm
 
Time is the Assassin – that is what you said
Waiting at Cape Finisterre or at the foot of some amigo’s bed
We bade farewell to Pilar, Galway Martin and Diego from Brazil
Though we went our separate ways I feel like I am walking with them still
 
Buen Camino Aragon now buen Camino Aragon to you
The blessed Santiago y las flechas amarillas see you thru
Buen Camino Aragon the rosy cross tattooed upon your arm
Protector of the pilgrim may it keep you Senor Aragon from harm
