Somos el barco by Pete Seeger

A fellow Victorian, Denis Donnelly,  has suggested this song as one to bring to our local Hands Across the Sands gathering at Willows Beach, August 4th.  Denis is Director of Soundings and Co-founder of Gettin Higher Choir.

A Stirring song!

 

Lyrics:

Chorus:

Somos el barco, somos el mar,
Yo navego en ti, tu navegas en mi
We are the boat, we are the sea, I sail in you, you sail in me

The stream sings it to the river, the river sings it to the sea
The sea sings it to the boat that carries you and me

Chorus

The boat we are sailing in was built by many hands
And the sea we are sailing on, it touches every land

Chorus

So with our hopes we set the sails
And face the winds once more
And with our hearts we chart the waters never sailed before

Chorus

The voyage has been long and hard, and yet we’re sailing still
With a song to help us pull togeter, if we only will

Chorus:
Somos el barco, somos el mar,
Yo navego en ti, tu navegas en mi
We are the boat, we are the sea, I sail in you, you sail in me

The stream sings it to the river, the river sings it to the sea
The sea sings it to the boat that carries you and me

Chorus

The boat we are sailing in was built by many hands
And the sea we are sailing on, it touches every land

Chorus

So with our hopes we set the sails
And face the winds once more
And with our hearts we chart the waters never sailed before

Chorus

The voyage has been long and hard, and yet we’re sailing still
With a song to help us pull togeter, if we only will
