Guantanamera

Gauntanamera

 

Estribillo:

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira, guantanamera

Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Y antes de morir yo quiero cantar mis versos del alma

Estribillo:

Cultivo una rosa blanca, en julio como en enero
Cultivo una rosa blanca, en julio como en enero
Para el amigo sincero, que me da su mano franca
Estribillo (dos veces)

Mi verso es de un verde claro, y de un carm�n encendido
Mi verso es de un verde claro, y de un carm�n encendido
Mi verso es un ciervo herido, que busca en el monte amparo

Estribillo (dos veces)

Chorus:

Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera *
Guantanamera, guajira, guantanamera

I am a truthful man; I come from where the palm tree grows,
I am a truehearted man, who comes from where the palm trees grow,
Before I lay down my life, I long to coin the verses of my soul

Chorus

I plant a snowy rose in January and July,
I grow a snowy rose in January and July,
For the open-hearted friend who puts a helping hand in mine

Chorus

The words that I write are radiant crimson and emerald bright,
The poems that I write are radiant crimson and emerald bright,
My verses are a wounded deer seeking shelter in the mountain height.

Chorus

*NOTE: “Guantanamera” i.e. From Guantánamo, Cuba – a woman (or an aire); and “guajira,” i.e. a peasant girl (or perhaps the name of a dance.) Influenced, in part, by the Sandpipers' 1966 version.
