ASA BRANCA by Luiz Gonzaga and Humberto Teixeira, new words by Joel Sattler


 


New title: “The White Bird”


 


 


When I saw the earth on fire


On the feast day of St. John


I asked of my God up in the heavens


why did you do this thing you've done?


I asked of my God up in the heavens


why did you do this thing you've done?


 


He burned up the old plantation


nothing left standing on the ground


And when the drought came, I lost my cattle


And all my horses they all fell down


And when the drought came, I lost my cattle


And all my horses they all fell down


 


This is time when the white wing


Has to fly back to the start


I said goodbye to my dear Rosinha


I’ll always guard you deep in my heart


I said goodbye to my dear Rosinha


I’ll always guard you deep in my heart


 


Many miles since I have traveled 


I am so alone today


Before I can go back to the heartland


I’ll have to pray all year for rain


Before I can go back to the heartland


I’ll have to pray all year for rain


 


When the green of your sweet eyes shall


Spread out far across the chart


All I can ask you is please don’t cry till 


till I return here back to my heart


All I can ask you is please don’t cry till 


till I return here back to my heart

Original lyrics in Portuguese by Luiz Gonzaga and Humberto Teixeira


 


Quando olhei a terra ardendo


Qual fogueira de São João


Eu perguntei a Deus do céu, ai


Por que tamanha judiação


Eu perguntei a Deus do céu, ai


Por que tamanha judiação


 


Que braseiro, que fornalha


Nem um pé de plantação


Por falta d’água perdi meu gado


Morreu de sede meu alazão


Por falta d’água perdi meu gado


Morreu de sede meu alazão


 


Até mesmo o asa branca


Bateu asas do sertão


Então eu disse adeus Rosinha


Guarda contigo meu coração


Então eu disse adeus Rosinha


Guarda contigo meu coração


 


Hoje longe muitas léguas,


nessa triste solidão,


espero a chuva cair de novo,


pra eu voltar pro meu sertão.


espero a chuva cair de novo,


pra eu voltar pro meu sertão.


 


Quando o verde dos teus olhos,


se espalha na plantação, eu te


asseguro, não chores naõ, viu


eu voltarei meu coração.


asseguro, não chores naõ, viu


eu voltarei meu coração.

When love is slowly roasting your soul over the coals...it is time to get the hell out of that kitchen!
