El Salvadorian Love Song (Revolution) LIVE AT ALTA GOLDMINERS DAUGHTER

*****************************************************************************************
[ Dedicated to an old El Salvadorian 'freedom fighter' (lost his girlfriend in a gun battle with American troops when she was 15 and he was about 17). He was about 50 years old when I met him in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. When I met him, his wife of 30 years was dying of cancer.]

Revolution

Haven't you heard?
I'm looking for a revolution
Havent't you heard?
I'm looking for a revolution
Havent' you heard?
I'm looking for a revolution;

Something good- to secure me from
All this confusion
Something to silence the cries
That pierce the night
Because of fallen lives
Devised by lies
Grieving widows
Staring out windows
Waiting for their husbands
To come home

A kaleidoscope
Of false hope
Scarlet rivers
Drown children's laughter

To where the laughter goes
Nobody knows
But their mothers
Come chasing after

Oh the cries, the sighs
Of stricken woe
Even in the midst of all this
Smoke and death
I still have one good joke left

I can write a love song
Although its kind of blue
blue....

Roses are red; violets are blue
I can still write a love song
Although its kind of blue...

Roses are red; violets are blue
Children lye dead; the cries are not a few

Por los que han sido fiel
The muerte es dulce como miel
Por los que en la tierra; todavia están
Al infierno se van

Por los que han sido fiel
The muerte es dulce como miel
Por los que en la tierra; todavia están
Al infierno se van

Haven't you heard I'm looking for a revolution?.....
