The last few have gone,
Sleeping amongst the flowers,
No more shall their eyes see the violence,
No more shall they hear the screams of their dying comrades,
The times of revolution have now passed,
Yet there is still a scar in Guernica,
Yet there is still a power, a force for the people in Spain,
Mismo el acto del tiempo no puede matar a su pasión para su causa
La gente de esa tierra herida nunca se olvidará de la brigada internacional
No aun cuando el último ha ido ellos negará la vida de ellos
