The Ballad of

INIGO

 

And Go

So this is where it begins. I have decided to challenge myself this year musically, and to that end, I have come up with my 52-Week Songwriting Challenge.

This first song comes from my love of the music of Marty Robbins and the fantastic Movie/Book, “The Princess Bride.” Now this being a derivative work of that story and movie, let me say that this song is for my edification and not meant to be published or profited upon in any way until the rights have been obtained to create the derivative work.

YEAH, right from the beginning, I’m making my life difficult by making something I like that I can’t use until…

 

 

Please Enjoy!

The Ballad

of Inigo

There was a man who for 20 years,

walked this earth with held back tears,
his heart and his family torn apart.

Now every time he sees his face,

He’s reminded of that day,
a 6 finger man came and tore his father down.

SON OF DOMINGO,
TELL ME YOUR TALE,
IS IT HARD, IS IT LONELY,
IN YOUR WORLD OF RAGE,

SON OF DOMINGO,
WHAT WILL YOU DO,
20 YEARS GONE AND IT’S SAID AND DONE,
WHAT’S GONNA BE NEXT FOR YOU.

Now he walks this world in rage,

waiting for that blessed day,
when he finally puts that man in the ground.

Things don’t always go our way,

a man in black and a fateful day,
now Inigo he’s just searching for the ground.

SON OF DOMINGO,
TELL ME YOUR TALE,
IS IT HARD, IS IT LONELY,
IN YOUR WORLD OF REVENGE,

SON OF DOMINGO,
WHAT WILL YOU DO,
WILL YOU FINALLY SAY THIS IS THE DAY AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD TONIGHT.

Broken and drunk he lost his way,

but the giant he did come to say,
that man in black is the one who knows the way.

Now he’s standing face to face,

And this is that blessed day,
When he finally says “prepare to die!”

SON OF DOMINGO,
TELL ME YOUR TALE,
IS IT HARD, IS IT LONELY,
NOW THAT YOU SAVED THE DAY,

SON OF DOMINGO,
WHAT WILL YOU DO,
SO SAIL THE WORLD WESLEY GOT THE GIRL,
AND MANDY GOT A GUN!
