Kris Kristofferson

I Heard it From Here

 

A woman was crying somewhere tonight

For someone she can’t stand out of her sight

She got what she wanted

If she wanted some tears

And she died like a dog, boy

I heard it from here

 

You know there ain’t no justice out there tonight

While you’re running for freedom

Fighting your fight

So you learn how to lose and you live with your fear

And you die like a dog, boy

I heard it from here

 

* Bridge

 

You know we had a hero

You know who I mean

He lifted his people

Up by their dreams

His vision was shining

His conscience was clear

And he died like a dog, boy

I heard it from here

 

Instrumental break

 

Sing a song for Steve Bikko and Augusto Sandino

Oscar Romero ad Allende too

Sing for Victor Jara, sing for Che Guevarra

And sing for Zapata and they sing for you

 

** Repeat first verse
