Che (LP版) - Judy Collins (朱蒂·柯林斯)

One morning in Bolivia the leader of the partisans

And two of his companions

 

Were forced to flee the mountains for their lives

 

Through green and dusty villages they sped along the little roads

 

The peasants smiled and shouted as they hurried by

Jesus called out to every one Don't think that we are leaving

They only tried to frighten us with guns

We shall return

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

 

To own your lives

To own your lands

 

The people smiled and shouted

And they ran along a little while

 

Then stood and watched

Their hands were restless and empty

 

The body of Jesus was in the jeep

That they blew up before it reached the plane

 

The priest was proud to bless him

For what there was of him remaining in the afternoon

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

 

To own your lives to own your lands

 

There is no one who can show you

 

The road you should be on

 

They only tell you they can show you

And then tomorrow they are gone

 

The smell of oil and incense fill

The room in this adobe hut

Where on the table lies the body of a man

 

His face is pale and young his beard is dark and curled

 

Pennies hold his eyelids from the evening light

 

People from the village those who knew him those who killed him

 

Stand inside the door

Their hands are restless and empty

 

They watch the priest make silent crosses in the air

 

And pray to God inside their hearts for their own souls

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

 

To own your lives to own your lands

 

There is no one who can show you

 

The road you should be on

 

They only tell you they can show you

And then tomorrow they are gone

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

To own your lives to own your lands

 

There is no one who can show you

The road you should be on

They only tell you they can show you

And then tomorrow they are gone

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

To own your lives to own your lands

There is no one who can show you

 

The road you should be on

They only tell you they can show you

And then tomorrow they are gone

 

Continue with your work

 

Continue with your talk

 

You have it in your hands

To own your lives to own your lands
