Verse 2

Clark Gable with a bayonet, you never thought anyone could look so cool And she could handle that Soviet pistol like she learned to do it in school And you fell in love in an air-raid, bombshell sanctioned attraction You were wet with fear, she was wet with passion

And all for the hand of Magdalena Your boots planted in the soil of Spain Like her tears in the Spanish rain All for the hand of Magdalena

Bridge

EYour mother could Dnever understand why her Eson took the call to Aarms And her Efather could Dnever understand how she could Efall for you Republican Acharms MagdaBmlena, MagdaElena, MagdalDena, the choice was never ours...

Verse 3

In a week and a half you'll be walking down 42nd Street again And you can read it in the New York Times they're plagiarizing Ernest Hemingway And you can touch that spot where a Fascist bullet nearly severed your arm But that's nothing like the way that your soul was scarred

Chorus

And all for the hand of Magdalena Your heart broken in the soil of Spain Like her tears in the Spanish rain All for the hand of Magdalena Your blood's red like the soil of Spain Like her tears in the Spanish rain All for the hand of Magdalena The hand of Magdalena The hand of Magdalena
