Neil Young

He came dancing across the water, with his galleons and guns
looking for the new world, in that palace in the sun
on the shore lay Montezuma with his cocoa leaves and pearls
in his halls, he often wandered, with the secrets of the worlds
And his subjects gathered round him, like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors, For the angry gods to see
And the women all were beautiful and the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice, so that others could go on
Hate was just a legend, and war was never known
The people worked together, and they lifted many stones
They carried them to the flatlands, and they died along the way
But they built up with their bare hands, what we still cant build today
And I know shes living there, and she loves me to this day
I still cant remember when, or how I lost my way
Cortez, Cortez, He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
