Cuando Tenga La Tierra – When I Have the Land

By Cntc Tegucigalpa, August 7, 2020

Miles de campesinas y campesinos alrededor de los rincones de Honduras luchan por su pedazo de tierra que fue robado por los terratenientes otros luchan por una cosecha que nunca va dar frutos porque no tienen donde cosechar, como dice la canción cuando tenga la tierra vamos hacer libres,vamos a cantar de alegría por las luchas ganadas y sobre todo por ser defensores de la tierra y territorio. #cuantotengalatierra #CNTCluchacampesina

“Thousands of peasants around the corners of Honduras fight for their piece of land that was stolen by the landowners. Others fight for a harvest that will never bear fruit because they have nowhere to harvest. As the song says – when I have the land we will be set free. Let’s sing for joy for the struggles won and especially for being advocates of the land and territory.”

Song: Cuando Tenga La Tierra ~ When I Have The Land
Sung by Mercedes Sosa

When I have the land
I will sow the words
That my father Martín Fierro cast to the wind,
When I have the land
Those who fight will have it,
The teachers, the axemen, the workers.

When I have the land
I swear seed, that life
will be a sweet bunch of grapes and in the sea of grapes
Our wine, I will sing, I will sing

When I have the land
I will give to the stars
Wheatfield astronauts, new moon,
When I have the land
I will form with the crickets
An orchestra where those who think, sing

When I have the land
I swear to you seed that life
It will be a sweet bunch and in the sea of grapes
Our wine, I’ll sing, I’ll sing

Peasant, when I have the land
The heart of my world will happen in the world
From behind all oblivion I will dry with my tears
All the horror of pity and I’ll finally see you
Peasant, peasant, peasant, peasant,
Owner of looking at the night we go to bed to make children,
Peasant, when I have the land
I will put the moon in my pocket and go for a walk
With the trees and the silence
And the men and women with me

I will sing, I will sing, I will sing, I will sing
