Jarama Valley

Jarama Valley

Woody Guthrie

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 we are going
But don't hasten to bid us adue
Even though we lost the battle at Jarama
We'll set this valley free before we're through

We were men of a Laken Battalion
We're proud of the fight that we made
We know that you people love the valley
We're remember a Laken Vrigade

From this valley they say we are going
But don't hasten to bid us adue
Even though we lost the battle at Jarama
We'll set this valley free before we're through

You will never find peace with these fascists
You'll never find friends such as we
So remember that valley of Jarama
And the people that'll set that valley free

From this valley they say we are going
But don't hasten to bid us adue
Even though we lost the battle at Jarama
We'll set this valley free before we're through

All this world is like this valley called Jarama
So green and so bright and so fair
No fascists can dwell in our valley
Nor breathe in our new freedoms air

From this valley they say we are going
But don't hasten to bid us adue
Even though we lost the battle at Jarama
We'll set this valley free before we're through
