Em        D      Am7           Am7*

Em 
He came dancing across the water
D 
With his galleons and guns
Am7
Looking for the new world
Am7*
In that palace in the sun

Em
On the shore lay Montezuma
D 
With his coca leaves and pearls
Am7
In his halls he often wandered
Am7*
With the secrets of the worlds.
Em       
And his subjects gathered 'round him
D
Like the leaves around a tree
Am7
In their clothes of many colours
Am7*
For the angry gods to see.
Em
And the women all were beautiful
D 
And the men stood straight and strong
Am7
They offered life in sacrifice
Am7*
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones

They carried them to the flatlands
And they died along the way
But they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer.
