...SKELETONS OF QUINTO... by The Folksmen

*from 'A Mighty Wind Original Soundtrack' (2003)*



Verse 1:

Am                      Am/G
 I worked the fields my father worked,
F                        E
 From dawn until setting sun.
Am                      Am/G
 My calloused hands and wind-burned face,
F                    E
 Have marked me as a man.

Chorus 1:

C                     G
 Who has no voice, no rights, no hope,
F                     E
 No place to call his own.
        Am        Am/G  F       E       Am
And the skeletons,   of Quinto, call me home.

Bridge 1:

Dm                                                Am
 The silver tentacles of the moon's rays haunt me,
Dm                                    E
 The deathly silence of the mountains, chill me to the bone.
        Am        Am/G  F       E       Am
And the skeletons,   of Quinto, call me home.

Verse 2:

Am                  Am/G             F              E
 If I lived to be a hundred, I won't know me Papa's plight.
Am                  Am/G          F                   E
 The cruelty of the master's whip, the horrors of the night.

Chorus 2:

C                       G
 He braved them all and stood his ground;
F                 E
 The bravest ever known.
        Am        Am/G  F       E       Am
And the skeletons,   of Quinto, call me home.

Bridge 2:

Dm                                                Am
 Un Oceano de verguenza incita nuestros recuerdos,
Las estranguladas, lesadillas de muerte.
 Me estremecen hasta los huesos,
Y los esqueleetos de Quinto, me llaman a mi morada.


Am  Am/G  F  E (x2)
C  G  F  E, Am  Am/G  F  E  Am

Verse 3:

Am                    Am/G          F                    E
 I know that somehow, in this world, the workers must be free.
Am                      Am/G    F                     E
 The toil and sweat and tyranny, the fascist jeu d'es-prit.

Chorus 3:

C                   G            F                     E
 Will only serve to keep us down; and aid the bourgeoi-sie.
        Am        Am/G  F       E       Am
And the skeletons,   of Quinto, call me home.


   Am     Am/G     F       E       C       G       Dm
