Woody Guthrie

"Jarama Valley" (karaoke)

"Jarama Valley" (sheet music)


There's a valley in Spain called Jarama.

It's a place that we all know so well.

It was there that we fought against the fascists.

We saw a peaceful valley turn to hell.

 

From this valley, they say that we're going.

Do not hasten to bid us adieu.

Even though we lost the battle at Jarama,

We'll set this valley free 'fore we're through.

 

We were men of the Lincoln Battalion,

Proud of the fight that we made.

We know that you people of the valley

Will remember our Lincoln Brigade.

 

From this valley, they say that we're going.

Do not hasten to bid us adieu.

Even though we lost the battle at Jarama,

We'll set this valley free 'fore we're through.

 

You will never find peace with these fascists.

You will never find friends such as we.

So, remember that valley of Jarama

And the people that will set that valley free.

 

From this valley, they say that we're going.

Do not hasten to bid us adieu.

Even though we lost the battle at Jarama,

We'll set this valley free 'fore we're through.

 

All this world is like this valley called Jarama:

So green and so bright and so fair.

And no fascists can dwell in our valley

Nor breathe in our new freedom's air.

 

From this valley, they say that we're going.

Do not hasten to bid us adieu.

Even though we lost the battle at Jarama,

We'll set this valley free 'fore we're through.

Hi : I am trying to find actual sheet music for this tune (Jarama Valley) for a memorial service of an old Socialist who recently passed. All I found are links. Does anybody have a copy of the music? If it was copied, I can hand this out to the musicians in the assembly and it would be so meaningful. I can pay (donate) for this service. Thanks in advance.
