"Guantanamera" as written by Jose Fernandez and Jose Marti, adapted by Pete Seeger. And Julian Orbon and Hector Angulo... And maybe Herminio Garcia Wilson, though he lost in court... It's complicated!...
The words mean, I am a truthful man
From the land of the palm trees
And before dying, I want to share the poems of my soul
My poems are soft green,
My poems are also flaming crimson
My poems are like a wounded fawn
Seeking refuge in the forest
The last verse says "con los pobres de la tierra"
With the poor people of this earth
I want to share my fate
The streams of the mountain
Pleases me more than the sea
