    He came 'round here with his camera and some of his American friends
    Where the money is immortal and the killing never ends
    He set out from Cinecitt?through the ruined streets of Rome
    To shoot in Almeria and bring the bodies home

    He said
    I'll be rich or I'll be dead
    I've got it all here in my head

    He could see the killers' faces and he heard the song they sang
    Where he waited in the darkness with the Viale Glorioso gang
    He could see the blood approaching and he knew what he would be
    Since the days when he was first assisting The Force of Destiny

    He worked for Walsh and Wyler with the chariot and sword
    When he rode out in the desert he was quoting Hawks and Ford
    He came to see the masters and he left with what he saw
    What he stole from Kurosawa he bequeathed to Peckinpah

    From the Via Tuscolana to the view from Miller Drive
    He shot the eyes of bad men and kept their deaths alive
    With the darkness and the anguish of a Goya or Van Cleef
    He rescued truth from beauty and meaning from belief
