Che Guevara (Peggy Seeger) The hunt is over, the hounds are weary The hunter's home and laid him down Wild and free was Che Guevara Till torn and spent, they brought him to the ground. The stars are lost in the fields of darkness Hunters' moon stalks the empty night Like a palmer, walks Che Guevara Bearing songs to sow the world with light The way is dark and beset with danger The road may end in a prison cell A guiding hand is Che Guevara To lead us past the place at which he fell. Brave men show the way and brave men follow The Earth bless heroes when a hero dies A hero's hero is Che Guevara Meeting death with morning in his eyes. In jungle earth, the hunters laid him No stone to mark the lonely grave Then farewell, comrade Che Guevara We will clear the trail that you have blazed "Che Guevara", Words & music by & Peggy Seeger. Recorded on _At the Present Moment_. Tune adapted from "Banks of Sweet Primroses" Ernesto (Che) Guevara was born 6/14/1928 - executed in Bolivia 10/6/67. (copyright Peggy Seeger) AJS oct96
