The Star-Spangled Banner

Não é nostalgia.
É reconhecimento do talento e da beleza,
na performance destes dois expoentes da música.

A bíblia diz que se os teus olhos forem bons,
todo o teu corpo será luz.

E podemos ver a luz brotar da melodia,
e dos movimentos de Jimi Hendrix e Whitney Houston.

Ele que traduziu no rock a alma americana,
e fez da guitarra um instrumento libertário.

Ela, que com sua voz, ecoou pelos céus
que o sonho de liberdade é eterno !!!

The Star-Spangled Banner

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's lasted gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O 'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets` red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen, through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In fully glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has vanished out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand.
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that has made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just.
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust".
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
