lyrics

First the wind and then the rain came
Together they brought down the ceiling
And nothing will be built the same
First the wind then the rain came

And the place was turn asunder
Like no one has seen before
And no man wants to see again
First the wind then the rain came

The rain poured down like honey
As the people started singing
Some were praying some were begging
May our freedom reign
Like Victor Jara! Victor Jara!

First the wind and then the rain came
And man, those bars were bent wide open
And the people escaped across the plains
First the wind then the rain came

And the freedom started flowing
From the vallies to the streets
And the music rang like a train
First the wind then the rain came

The rain poured down like honey
As the people started singing
Some were praying some were begging
May our freedom reign
Like Victor Jara! Victor Jara!
