There is a song I planned to sing at our Buenos Aires concert that I learned from the wonderful Argentine singer, Mercedes Sosa. I wasn’t quite prepared that evening so I’m glad to send this out now to all of our friends and fans in Argentina.

– Bruce Springsteen


Filmed and recorded in Buenos Aires

Only Ask of God (English translation)
Written by León Gieco

I only ask of God
That I am not indifferent to the pain,
That the dry death won’t find me
Empty and alone without having done the sufficient

I only ask of God
That I won’t be indifferent to the injustice
That they will not slap my other cheek
After a claw has scratched this destiny of mine

I only ask of God
That I am not indifferent to the battle,
It is a big monster stomp and walks hardly on
All the poor innocence of people.

I only ask of God
That I not be indifferent to deception
If a traitor can do more than a few,
That those few do not forget easily.

I only ask of God
That I am not indifferent to the future,
Hopeless is he who has to go
To live a different culture.
