Bob Dylan's Desire: Romance in Durango

On hearing of the impending death of a marvelous young woman--
 hilarious, brilliant, beautiful, kind, (-played basketball better than all your brothers)--
--the Best in every way, loved by all--Really-- By ALL!

...
the thought of my grandmother's passing arises, and i remember the song and lyrics that i pondered at that time.
Godspeed or Miracles, please.


" ...No llores mi querida Dios nos vigila

Soon the horse will take us to Durango
Agarrame mi vida Soon the desert will be gone Soon you will be dancing the fandango.

At the corrida we'll sit in the shade
And watch the young torero stand alone
We'll drink tequila where our grandfathers stayed When they rode with Villa into Torre6n.

Then the padre will recite the prayers of old
In the little church this side of town I will wear new boots and an earring of gold
You'll shine with diamonds in your wedding gown.


The way is long but the end is near
Already the fiesta has begun
The face of God will appear
With His serpent eyes of obsidian.

No llores mi querida Dios nos vigila
Soon the horse will take us to Durango
Agarrame mi vida Soon the desert will be gone
Soon you will be dancing the fandango.

Was that the thunder that I heard
My head is vibrating, I feel a sharp pain
Come sit by me don't say a word
Oh can it be that I am slain ?
..."
