La Lucha Continuará

Judy & Danny Rose-Redwood
Language: English



They called her Morning Glory
She was eighteen years and strong
She died in the early Florida morning
Some lives are reel but aren’t long

And is Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
En el corazón de America
La lucha continuará
La lucha continuará
Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
Deep in the heart of America
The struggle goes on and on
The struggle goes on and on

While most of us were sleeping
Her day had already begun
Talking to the truckers
Working with the strikers
Waiting for the rising of the sun
Waiting for the rising of the sun.

Now the man who owns the canefields in Belle Glade
Same man who owns the sugar mill
Thinks he even owns the sugar workers
And he believes he always will.

And is Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
En el corazón de America
La lucha continuará
La lucha continuará
Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
Deep in the heart of America
The struggle goes on and on
The struggle goes on and on

She was my sister
And a sister of the Black Eagle too (*)
And now the fieldworkers who used to be forgotten
Have a union that's for the many, not just the few.

Some lives are measured out in silver
Others are measured out in gold
But the lives that are given out in sharing
These are the richest ones I know.

And is Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
En el corazón de America
La lucha continuará
La lucha continuará
Huelga, Huelga, Huelga
Deep in the heart of America
The struggle goes on and on
The struggle goes on and on
(*) La "black eagle", un'aquila nera, è il simbolo dell'United Farm Workers (UFW)
