Joan Baez – Esquinazo Del Guerrillero lyrics

(Poema de Fernando Alegría, con
Música de Rolando Alarcón. De Chile)

Las cinco ya van a dar
Las cinco de la mañana
Abreme la puerta mi alma
Que he ganado una batalla
Que he ganado una batalla
Y herido ya el sol se asoma
Te busco en la madrugada
Dáme tu pecho, paloma.

Dáme tu pecho, paloma
Sin olvidar bien amada
Flor que no se abre a su dueño
Se apaga en la madrugada
Al filo de un esquinazo
Como el lucero en tu almohada
Paloma y tú entre mis brazos.

Palomita entre mis brazos
Punteando se viene el alba
Oye el rumor de las armas
Que ya suenan los balazos
Que ya suenan los balazos
Escucha lo que yo siento
No vuela la alondra en vano
Si en brazos la lleva el viento.
