Live at Festival des Vieilles Charrues, Carhaix, Bretagne, FRANCE, 2000.

This is one of Joan Baez's classics, although it's a cover of a song written by a Chilean folk singer and visual artist: Violeta Parra, who committed suicide in 1967. Her song "Gracias a la vida", composed one year before her death, is one of the most covered latin american songs.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto

me dio dos luceros que cuando los abro

perfecto distingo lo negro del blanco

y en el alto cielo su fondo estrellado

y en las multitudes el hombre que yo amo.

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado el oido que en todo su ancho

graba noche y dia grillos y canarios

martillos, turbinas, ladridos, chubascos

y la voz tan tierna de mi bien amado.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado el sonido y el abedecedario

con él las palabras que pienso y declaro

madre amigo hermano y luz alumbrando,

la ruta del alma del que estoy amando.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados

con ellos anduve ciudades y charcos,

playas y desiertos montañas y llanos

y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto

me dio el corazón que agita su marco

cuando miro el fruto del cerebro humano,

cuando miro el bueno tan lejos del malo,

cuando miro el fondo de tus ojos claros.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto

me ha dado la risa y me ha dado el llanto,

así yo distingo dicha de quebranto

los dos materiales que forman mi canto

y el canto de ustedes que es el mismo canto

y el canto de todos que es mi propio canto.

Thank you to life, which has given me so much

It gave me two beams of light, that when opened

Can perfectly distinguish black from white

And in the sky above, her starry backdrop

And from within the multitude

The one that I love

Thank you to life, which has given me so much

It gave me an ear that, in all of its width

Records— night and day—crickets and canaries

Hammers and turbines and bricks and storms

And the tender voice of my beloved

Thank you to life, which has given me so much

It gave me sound and the alphabet

With them the words that I think and declare

Mother, Friend, Brother and the light shining

The route of the soul from which comes love

Thank you to life, which has given me so much

It gave me the ability to walk with my tired feet

With them I have traversed cities and puddles

Valleys and deserts, mountains and plains

And your house, your street and your patio

Thank you to life, which has given me so much

It gave me a heart, that causes my frame to shudder

When I see the fruit of the human brain

When I see good so far from bad

When I see within the clarity of your eyes

Thank you to life, which has given me so muc

It gave me laughter and it gave me longing

With them I distinguish happiness and pain

The two materials from which my songs are formed

And your song, as well, which is the same song

And everyones song, which is my very song
