El Aparecido
by Victor Jara
#FiftyYearsAgo #Celebrating1967 No. 50.

Victor Jara had a premonition of Che's death early in the year and this song "The Apparition" was written, recorded and released in September 1967.

Ernesto "Che" Guevara was murdered by a CIA death squad on October 9th.

El Aparecido (The appeared one)
by Victor Jara.

Opening roads through hills,
leaving his steps on the wind,
the eagle makes him fly
and the silence shelters him.

Never he complained of the cold.
Never he complained of tiredness.
The poor feel him pass
and follow him like a blind man.

Run, run, run.
Over here, over here, over there.
Run, run, run.
Run, because they are out to kill you.
Run, run, run.

His head is finished off
by crows with golden claws.
How he has been crucified
by the spite of the mighty.

Son of contempt
he is followed by twenty plus twenty
Since he gives away his life
They want to kill him.

Run, run, run.
Over here, over here, over there.
Run, run, run.
Run, becaause they are out to kill you.
Run, run, run.
