Music& Lyrics: Schefer

I am a sailor
Heading out to the sea
On the prow
I feel the wind on my face

I head towards
The Caribbean Sea
The Missile Crisis
Will be my baptism of fire

When U2s discovered Soviet missiles

I am John
My ship’s Belgrano Cruiser
We received orders
To make the Cuban blockade

My position
Antiaircraft
battery
Saved my life
A sailor named Ariel

Upon returning we got the tattoo of a cross

October 1962
The world was close to confrontation
USSR ‘gainst U.S.
And the threat of nuclear annihilation

I am proud
Of my father’s story
I’ll remember it
Every day of my life

I have tattooed
The same cross as my old man
In Heaven or Hell
One day we’ll meet again

Caravaca Cross protect me until that day

USSR and USA
CIA vs. KGB
Washington, Moscow and Fidel
My old man and his friend Ariel

I am a sailor…
I wear a cross on my skin…
I am a sailor…
I wear a cross on my skin…
