Thread Name: Origin: I Come and Stand at Every Door / Hiroshima
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Hiroshima child
Though it is unattributed in the DT as Hiroshima, the song is the translation of the Hikmet poem , which is often titled "I Come and Stand at Every Door" from the first line (See Some poems by Nazim Hikmet). Other titles include "Hiroshima Child," "Girl of Hiroshima," "(Poor Little) Dead Girl of Hiroshima," and "Dead Little Girl of Hiroshima." The tune adopted by Pete Seeger is "Grey Silkie." Chords are at this thread: Tune Req: The Great Silkie.
