Lucia

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Introduced by Robert Hunter on 10 March 1978 as "a tune I wrote that you've probably never heard before. My Spanish isn't good enough to transcribe those sections.

[Spanish section]

I am a poor sailor, for you I will be a magician
My heart is a wounded sparrow, Lucia
Your laugh is the arrow that caught me, I can just fly to your window
Your window is closed but your curtain is open, Lucia

Inside your window your husband lies sleeping beside you
Rise on a dream, come fly out your window, Lucia
Two doves fly over the plaza, a white dove flies rings round a swallow
[Spanish], Lucia

[Spanish section]
