Victor Jara Lyrics

Victor Jara
Arlo Guthrie/A. Mitchell
Victor Jara of Chile lived like a shooting star
He fought for the people of Chile with his songs and
his guitar
His hands were gentle and his hands were strong

Victor Jara was a peasant boy barely six years old
He sat upon his father's plough and watched the earth
unfold

When the neighbours had a wedding or one of their
children died
His mother sang all night to them with Victor by her
side

He grew up to be a fighter stood against what was wrong
He learned of peoples grief and joy and turned it into
song

He sang for the copper miners and those who farmed the
land
He sang for the factory workers who knew Victor was
their man

He campaigned for Allende canvassed night and day
Singing take hold of your brother's hand the future
starts today

When Pinochet seized Chile they arrested Victor then -
They caged him in the stadium with 5000 frightened men

Victor picked up his guitar his voice resounded strong
And he sang for his comrades till the guards cut short
his song

They broke the bones in both his hands and beat him on
the head
Tortured him with electric wires then they shot him
dead

Victor Jara of Chile lived like a shooting star
He fought for the people of Chile with his songs and
his guitar
His hands were gentle and his hands were strong
