Versión de Woody Guthrie
I was down 'long the river, just settin' on a rock,
Lookin' at the boats in Bonneville Lock.
And the gate swings open and the boat sails in,
Toots her whistle, she's gone a gin'!

Well, I fills up my hat brim, drunk a sweet taste,
Thought 'bout the river goin' to waste,
Thought 'bout the dust, thought 'bout the sand,
Thought 'bout the people, thought 'bout the land.
Ever'body runnin' round all over creation,
Just lookin' for some kind of a little place.

Pulled out my pencil, scribbled this song,
I figgered all these salmon fishers can't be wrong.
Them salmon fish, they're mighty shrewd,
They got senators, politicians, too!
Just like a President, they run ever' four years.

Yes, them folks back east are doin' a lot o' talkin',
Some of 'em balkin' and some of 'em squawkin'
But with all their figgerin' and all their books,
Well, they just didn't know them raw Chinooks.
Salmon! That's a good river!

Just watch this river and pretty soon
Ever'body's goin' to be changin' their tune.
The big Grand Coulee and Bonneville Dam
Run a thousand factories for Uncle Sam.
An' ever'body else in the world
Makin' ever'thing from sewing machines to fertilizer
Atomic bedrooms!... Plastic!
Everything's gonna be made out of plastic!

Yes, Uncle Sam needs wool, Uncle Sam needs wheat,
Uncle Sam needs houses and stuff to eat,
Uncle Sam needs water and power dams,
Uncle Sam needs people and people needs land.
Don't like dictators not much, myself,
But I think the whole country ought to be run
By electricity!

(1961)

Entrevista

el 22/12/2022

Silvio Rodríguez Domínguez, juglar universal entre los fundadores de la Nueva Trova de Cuba, cumplió el 29 de noviembre 76 años de vida íntegra, honorable y trascendente; como todo o casi todo, que no es lo mismo pero es igual, transcurrió esta conversación en medio de los azares del trabajo y la amistad.

HOY EN PORTADA
Caso Fernando Bécquer

el 30/01/2023

El reciente caso de abuso sexual y maltrato a mujeres protagonizado por el trovador cubano Fernando Bécquer disparó las alarmas en la isla respecto a la difusión de canciones con letras que denigran a la mujer, en temas que hacen de la vulgaridad su carta de presentación.
