Thread Name: ADD: Gracias a la Vida (Violeta Parra)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Gracias ala Vida
I'll refresh this so I can ask the same question. Does anyone have a good translation of these lyrics? I can do about as well as the computer translation above, but I have about as much poetry in my translation as well.

And does anyone know the background on this one? I heard it was the suicide note of the woman who wrote it after the man she adored left her.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
