O Gente Da Minha Terra


O Gente Da Minha Terra


É meu e vosso este fado
destino que nos amarra
por mais que seja negado
às cordas de uma guitarra

Sempre que se ouve um gemido
duma guitarra a cantar
fica-se logo perdido
com vontade de chorar

Ó gente da minha terra
agora é que eu percebi
esta tristeza que trago
foi de vós que a recebi

E pareceria ternura
se eu me deixasse embalar
era maior a amargura
menos triste o meu cantar

Ó gente da minha terra

O Gente Da Minha Terra

Versions: #1#2

Is both mine and yours this fado

destiny that tides us (together)

no matter how much it is denied

by the strings of a guitar

whenever one hears a lament

of a guitar singing

one is instantly lost

With a desire to weep

Oh people of my land

Now I've understand

This sadness which I carry on

Was from you that I received

and it would seem tenderness

If I let myself be soothed

my anguish would be greater

my singing (would be) less sadder

Oh people of my land
