Finisterre

This song is by Oysterband and appears on the album Freedom And Rain (1990).

Farewell, Finisterre, sleep away the afternoon
Rocking with the tide, drinking with the moon
I found a ticket in my pocket, all the way from Port of Spain
And the warm wind from the Indies carried me again

Santander, the sky is falling
The tale we told each other has an end
Santander, to hear me calling
You, that never lost a friend

We'd often look for gold, treasure buried in the sand
We hid it long ago, before our wars began
When the world was green and early, and time was on our side
Before the storm got up to blow us far and wide

Santander, the sky is falling
The tale we told each other has an end
Santander, you hear me calling
You, that never lost a friend

Farewell, Finisterre, sleep away the afternoon
Just rocking with the tide, drinking with the moon
Last night I turned the glasses over, and I drank the bottle dry
The moon stared out to sea all night and so did I

Santander, the sky is falling
The tale we told each other has an end
Santander, to hear me calling
You, who never lost a friend
Never lost a friend
