The complete lyrics - all in good time

12. Hey Cisco

(Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)
Deep Purple のアルバム Purpendicular より


芸術的表現という過程を経てテーマもちょっと変え、ここでは(実は結構つまらなかった)ローン・レンジャーについてではなく、当時もっと格好よかったヒーロー2人についての曲となった。向こう見ずで、痺れるほど華麗なシスコ・キッドとその相棒パンチョ 、演じたのはダンカン・レナルドとリオ・カリロだった。だがメッセージ自体は変わっていない。

Hey Cisco


Watch him ride into the sunset
He'd have the little fat guy
Right along his side
Echoing off the canyon, Hey Cisco
From Pancho 'n' pretty soon
The black sombrero would reply
Hey Pancho what's happening mi amigo
It's getting somewhere near the end,
This winding trail
When we've raced around the corner
For the final dusty time
Mr Renaldo 'n' Carillo's
Going to jail

Can't open no more supermarkets
Duncan's sombrero's hanging
Up there with his guns
Some cigarro sucking slug
Under a cheap Hollywood chandelier
Says 'Cisco, Kid you know
Your day is done
Let me know how you are doin'
Mr Renaldo
If you need me I could be
A friend for life
There don't seem any point
We should throw 'way
all these years
Why don't we saddle up
And ride out one more time

What they doing to my friend
What they doing to my man
Don't matter when
I'll stay to the end
Hey Cisco
We're going out in style
We're going down together
