La Marcha de Agosto


Merced To Sacramento
SB~1736 Si Se Puede

gente's feet drum la tierra,
gritos fill day's air
con suenos y esperanzas,

UFW is on the march
for justicia y arbitration,
a fair deal at la mesa,

campesinos llenos con corazon,
almas fuertes
son banderas de orgullo,

a black eagle flies above,
wings singing si se puede,
we know it's Cesar,

the miles fall like wounded oppressors,
each step leads to a promise,
in resistencia lives el poder de nosotros,

veteranos y jovencitos
walk side by side,
passing consejos y sue?os nuevos,

la lucha is never ending,
this march is never ending,
each day a move to survival,

somos juntos,
gente del sol.
workers of this earth,

gritamos justicia,
fair mediation,
option of arbitration,

we drum la tierra,
shout to growers and opposers,
our sue?os will be reality.
