"Spanish Bombs" is a song by English punk rock band the Clash, with principal vocals by Joe Strummer and additional vocals by Mick Jones. It was written by Strummer and recorded for the band's 1979 album London Calling. The song also appears on the Clash compilation albums The Story of the Clash, Volume 1 (1988) and Clash on Broadway (1991). Allmusic's Donald A. Guarisco said that the song's "combination of thoughtful lyrics and an energetic performance" made it a "highlight of London Calling". Strummer wrote the song during the recording sessions for London Calling. He developed the idea for the song while travelling home from Wessex studios in London and listening to a radio news report of Basque terrorist bombings of tour hotels on the Costa Brava. It reminded him of the contemporary IRA bombing campaign in the United Kingdom

Spanish Bombs - The Clash

Spanish songs in Andalucia
The shooting site in the days of 39
Oh please leave the vendanna open
Fredrico Llorca is dead and gone

Bullet holes in the cemetary walls
The black cars of Guardia Civil
Spanish bombs on the Costa Rica
I´m flying in on a DC10 tonight

Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon
Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon

Spanish weeks in my disco casino
The freedom fighters died up on the hill
They sang the red flag, they wore the black one
After they died it was mockingbird hill

Back home the buses went up in flashes
The Irish tomb drenched in blood
Spanish bombs shatter the hotels
My señoritas rose was nipped in the bud

Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon
Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon

The hillsides ring with "Free the people"
Or can I hear the echoes of the days of 39
Trenches full of poets, a ragged army
Fixing bayonettes to fight the other line

Spanish bombs rock the province
I´m hearing music from another time
Spanish bombs, Costa Brava
I´m flying in on a DC10 tonight

Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon
Spanish bombs, yo te qiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh ma corazon

oh ma corazon
oh ma corazon

Spanish songs in Andalucia... Mandolina
Spanish songs in Granada... oh ma corazon

oh ma corazon
oh ma corazon
