​The Bandit

This song is by The Shadows and appears on the album Out Of The Shadows (1962) and on the compilation album The Shadows In The 60's (1989).

Ole, I am a bandit, the Bandit of Brazil

I'm the quickest on the trigger, when I shoot I shoot to kill
I'm a hero down in Rio, where they talk about me still.

Once I robbed a big ranchero, who was rich beyond compare.
And to ransom held his daughter, she was young and she was fair.

Ole, I am a bandit, the Bandit of Brazil.

She was sweet and she was tender, there was love light in her eyes,
In my arms she soon surrendered, very much to my surprise.

I refused her father's ransom, and I kept the greater prize,
Now at night we ride together beneath the blue Brazilian sky.

Adios to you, Amigo, Adios to you, my friend...

Ole, O Cangachero, the Bandit of Brazil

Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole
