THE GATEKEEPER lyrics : "El Cid"

Dark was that time when the hope flew away
Only one man willed to fight
All that he had was a horse, sword and bread

And stubborn soul of a knight
Hero of Great Spain
Raised his banner


Bravery of this man brought faith to woeful men
waiting for hartening gest

Minstrels will laud his name all across the lands
Hero of the Reconquest


In the name of God and Saint Jacob
Slash them, good sir knights!
Because I am Rodrigo Diaz

El Cid de Vivar!



He formed the league of the warriors of might
Ready to break Muslims' spine
Powerful was not the strength of their arms

But trust in things Divine
Hero of Great Spain
drew his sword


Bravery of this man brought faith to woeful men
waiting for hartening gest

Minstrels will laud his name all across the lands
Hero of the Reconquest


In the name of God and Saint Jacob
Slash them, good sir knights!
Because I am Rodrigo Diaz

El Cid de Vivar!

Man of the moment -- they say, he never lost a fight

Almoravides fled at his sight!



That night he prayed till early dawn
God answered all his cries
sending the rain that caused the flood

Forcing foes to withdraw
Hero of Great Spain
For Santiago!


Bravery of this man brought faith to woeful men
waiting for hartening gest

Minstrels will laud his all across the lands
Hero of the Reconquest


In the name of God and Saint Jacob
Slash them, good sir knights!
Because I am Rodrigo Diaz - El Cid de Vivar!


El Cid de Vivar
