This song tells the true story of Wenseslao Moguel, a soldier in the Mexican Revolution, who was captured and sentenced to death by a firing squad without a trial. Moguel was shot 9 times including a final bullet through his head at close range by an officer to ensure death. But somehow he survived and managed to escape. After his "execution" he went on to live a full life and spent much of it touring the USA with the "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" traveling museum.
