Guantanamera

Words by Jose Marti
New English verse by Daria A. Marmaluk-Hajioannou

I love the beautiful lyrics which were written by poet José Martí. Music by Joseito Fernandez. I’ve added a new English verse here.

 

Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma
Y antes de morirme quiero echar mis versos de alma

Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera

English Verse:
I come from an island of palm trees, it’s the place I call home
My heart will always return there, no matter how far I roam

Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera

Mi verso es de verde claro y de un carmin encendido
Mi verso es un ciervo herido que busca en el monte amparo

Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera
Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera
