Kingston Trio – Farewell Adelita lyrics

Bob Shane/Jack Splittard

Adelita, 'tis time we remembered that only one hour more and I must go
To the hills of Sierra Del Prado for the glory of our Mexico.

Oh, Adelita, promise you'll remember the happy hours that now have long gone by.
Oh, Adelita, we'll share these tender moments. Adelita, it hurts me when you cry.

Adelita, the time is here to leave you. Once again, now, I'll kiss away your tears.
In my heart I will hold you forever and our love, it will live through the years.

Farewell Adelita meanings

  • t
    Bob Shane/Jack Splittard (both probably one and the same), had little to do with writing this song except perhaps to provide English words for it. The song comes out of the Mexican Revolution in the early 20th century. Soccer fans of the Mexican World Cup team of 2002 most likely remember it as being used as the theme song for the team.
