Lyrics Edit

Quando sinto o cheiro da caatinga
O serto d
Me d vontade de matar
Sou Lampio
Sou bandido
Eu sei que algum dia
Minha cabea vo degolar
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro

Sou rei do cangao
No se aquieta comigo
Que eu te arregao
A morte comanda o cangao
E o meu nome alm do espao
Virgulino Ferreira
Serto de Canudos
Aqui eu nasci
Virgulino Ferreira
Serto de Canudos
Aqui eu morri
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro

Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro
Cangaceiro
Lampio!
