This is the story of El Lute
A man who was born to be hunted like a wild animal
Because he was poor
But he refused to accept his fate
And today his honor has been restored

He was only nineteen and he was sentenced to die
For something that somebody else did and blamed on El Lute
Then they changed it to life and so he could escape
From then on they chased him and searched for him day and night
All over Spain but the search was in vain for El Lute

He had only seen the dark side of life the man they called El Lute
And he wanted a home just like you and like me
In a country where all would be free
So he taught himself to read and to write it didn't help El Lute
He was one who had dared to escape overnight they had to find El Lute

No one gave you a chance in the Spain of those days
On the walls every place they had put up the face of El Lute
And he robbed where he could just like once Robin Hood
They finally caught him and that seemed the end
But they caught him in vain 'cause a change came for Spain and El Lute

He had only seen the dark side of life the man they called El Lute
And he wanted a home just like you and like me
In a country where all would be free
And then freedom really came to his land and also to El Lute
Now he walks in the light of a sunny new day the man they called El Lute
