2. Ann Arbor no da su apoyo Al daño hecho por nuestro gobierno Sentimos por Ustedes Sentimientos no violentos sino tiernos Como pájaros que viajan entre el norte y el sur Y en ambas tierras tienen su hogar Los corazones nuestros A Juigalpa ya van a volar Hoy Washington y King andan en Juigalpa Cada puerta tocan ellos, y detrás Los americanos que han despertado cantan "No aceptamos las mentiras nunca más." 1 . No one is an island The suffering of one will hurt us all We will stand together For if we dont each one of us will fall. People of Juigalpa, now that we've joined together In our breasts there burns a common fíame And now that we are family The btood that courses in us is the same And today we saw Sandino in Ann Arbor And with him was Fonseca Amador And behind them marched the martyred Nicaraguans Telling us it's in our hands to stop the war 2. Ann Arbor will not share in The damage that our government has done The f riendship of our cities Is not a thing of land mines or of guns And like the birds that travel every year f rom north to south And make their home in both of our sweet lands Our hearts will travel to you And though we're far apart we'll clasp your hands Now Washington and King walk in Juigalpa And together they are knocking on each door And behind them stand the once-deceived Americans Saying "We will not be lied to any more." DE CIUDAD A CIUDADFROM CITY TO CITY was performed for the first time on October 26, 1 986, at the send-off party at St. Thomas Church parish hall for the first delegatíon from Ann Arbor to Juigalpa, our sister city in Nicaragua. Oscar Ballester sang the Spanish lyrics and played guitar; Paul Tinkerhess sang the English lyrics and played banjo; composer David Vayo accompanied on piano. Cassettes and sheet music were sent to Nicaragua along with the delegatíon, and the song was performed again in Nicaragua, this time by choruses from both countries.
