Santiana Oh, Santiana gain'd the day! Away Santiana! Oh, Santiana gain'd the day! All across the plains of Mexico! He gained the day at Molley-Del-Rey (Monterey), An' General Taylor ran away. All of his men were brave & true, Every soldier brave and true. Oh, Santiana fought for fame, Oh, Santiana gained a name. An' Zacharias Taylor ran away, He ran away at Molley-Del-Rey. Santiana's men were brave, Many found a soldier's grave. `Twas a fierce & bitter strife, Hand to hand they fought for life. An' Santiana's name is known, What a man can do was shown. Oh, Santiana fought for his gold, What deeds he did have oft been told. `twas on the field of Molley-Del-Rey, Santiana lost a leg that day. Oh, Santiana's day is o'er, Santiana will fight no more. Oh, Santiana's gone away, Far from the field of Molley-Del-Rey. Oh, Santiana now we mourn, We left him buried off Cape Horn. JY
