Ry Cooder – F.D.R. In Trinidad lyrics

(Fitz Maclean)
(C) - (G) - (Am) Capo on 2

(C) When Roosevelt came to the land of the (G) hummingbird shouts of welcome were (C) heard
Roosevelt came to the land of the (G) hummingbird shouts of welcome were (C) heard
His visit to their (Am) island is bound to be an epoch in (G) local (C) history
Definitely (Am) marking the new e (G) ra, keeping Trinidad in Ameri (C) ca

For this great man jubilation, was evinced by the entire population
Friendship for the you. S. A. Was shown and from his house to stars and the stripes were flown
For the state to open the gate to the president of these United States
In fact everybody was glad to welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad

We are privileged to see the democratic president of the great republic
With his charming and genial personality and his wonderful urbanity
We were struck by his modest style and we were intrigued by the famous Roosevelt smile
No wonder why everybody was glad to welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad

Now we understand that the president has just been on a visit to Brazil and the Argentine
Mr. Cordell Hull in attendance they took part in a peace conference
To stop war and atrocity and make the world safe for democracy
The greatest event in the century in the interest of suffering humanity
