The Ballad of El Dorado

There is a legend in the West, a story often told
The Aztecs had their Athens in the heart of Mexico
Cortez won nearly every battle in his quest for gold
But Montezuma sent the treasure off to El Dorado

Three riders from Mojave said that they had found the map
One said "I had a family but something in me snapped"
One said "We can't give up the search now that we're on the track"
And said one "I have a feeling that we won't be coming back"

They'd even try to sell their souls
For the secret of El Dorado

Open the door to the wind
And you'll find nobody there
The wind knows the way to El Dorado
Go and find it if you dare

There are places in the desert where the Indians never go
The sand rolls like an ocean, not a living thing can grow
And anyone who knew the way has perished long ago
You only seek your death out there, not El Dorado

But who can say you'll never know
The secret of El Dorado?
