Two versions of Bella Ciao, words and music, are given in Jan/Feb 1971 SING OUT! (vol. 20, No. 3), if you can get hold of it.

One is almost identical to the version Ezio typed. The other is a woman's work song, sung by the rice workers in the Po Valley in Northern Italy. The article says the movie "Bitter Rice" is a good portrayal of those women's lives. Here is the song. I don't know whether it was earlier or later than the partisans' song, I suspect later. I also wonder whether there was originally a love song to the same tune?

Ezio, (or anyone), please correct any errors in the translation. It's singable, more or less, which meant I took a couple of small liberties.

Alla mattina, appena alzata,
O Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
Alla mattina, appena alzata,
In risaiami tocca andar.

In early morning, we've hardly wakened,
O bella ciao etc.
In early morning, we've hardly wakened,
To the rice fields we all must go.

(Same pattern for the rest of the song:)

E tra gli insetti e le zanzare, ...
Duro lavor ci tocca far.

And mid the insects and the mosquitoes ...
Hard labor is our lot.

IL Capo in piedi col suo bastone, ...
E noi curve a lavorar.

The boss stands upright, holding his truncheon ...
As we stoop and bend to work.

O mamma mia, o che tormento, ...
Io t'invoco ogni doman.

My dearest mother, this life is torture ...
Every day I call your name.

Ma verra' un giorno che tutte quante
lavoreremo in liberta'.

But a day is coming when all together
We shall work in liberty.

Thank you Ferrara for posting this version of the rice-pickers. I didn't know it.

The rice-picker women's song is certainly older that the partisan's one. The partisans re-wrote it with different words on the same tune. It got a wide popularity as partisan's song during the 2nd WW. By the way, after the war period the rice-picker job began to die and by the '60 the picker-women disappeared. Ciao

Ezio

I am interested in the chords too. Also those real audio files.

I have one from an album called "Red Songs" that was bought in Turkey and it is sang by a woman with beautiful voice.

there also a Turkish version sang by Grup Yorum at: http://www.ozgurluk.org/mp3/Berivan/12-Cev_bella.mp3

there they have another partisan song:

http://www.ozgurluk.org/mp3/Marslarimiz/05-Partizan.mp3

which is I think the march of the partisan.

Turgut

PS: can you e-mail me the chords and the files? durduran@mail.sas.upenn.edu

Hallo Ezio,

My name is Richard and I am writing to you from the german city of Berlin.

I have found your message (attached), which is now over one year old, while serching the Internet for the "Bella Ciao" song. This is perhaps the most beautiful tune I have heard in my whole life. I'd like to have it on my PC. Its a great feeling to listen to it.

Would you please be so kind to mail me the audio file with the song? My e-mail: urban49@hotmail.com

I thank you very much in advance. Best greetings Richard Urban

Ezio, if you know where to find a MIDI piano version of CORE 'NGRATO, please tell me. I like to practice singing with midis before taking my teacher's time to play the accompaniment. I do have several midis of Neapolitan songs but not this one. One hour navigating Italian sites and no luck ! Thank you for any help you may give.
Un abrazo - Andrés (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
