Vargas, the Knight of Leon


Master Alexander de Seaton            


Rodrigo - Vargas, a knight of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas, a knight of Leon

He was born on the plains of Espan~a
A trainer of horses for war
Or for pleasure or tourney, no matter
He knew he would want something more
His father was Lord of the Manor
His mother a Don~a so pure
They guided and taught him his manners
His destiny shone bright and sure
Rodrigo - Vargas, a squire of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas a squire of Leon

He was trained by his father for battle
He won a fair Celtic maid's heart
He still wasn't sure what he wanted
But he knew that he'd made a good start
His mind and his heart they both drove him
He strove to learn battle's art
For his Lady, with honor and courage
As a man, he played a man's part
Rodrigo - Vargas, serjant of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas, serjant of Leon

He went on Crusade with his Liege Lord
He fought with the Moor man-to-man
Philosophy helped him decide it
He left the cross for the Koran
The faith of his fathers, it tore him
But in the world, wisdom he learned
Every man makes his mark with his actions
Respect and honor are earned
Rodrigo - Vargas, captain of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas, captain of Leon

He has served as his King's Lord of Battle
Lead armies afar and at home
A captain for prowess and daring
A knight for courtesy known
To fight for the right in Espan~a
To fight with for his Lady, not fame
A glorious warrior in battle
Rodrigo Vargas is his name
Rodrigo - Vargas, a knight of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas, a knight of Leon
Rodrigo - Vargas, the knight of Leon
