Lyrics
Came from the sea, to Panam,
To work in the jungle and build the canal
He got paid in silver, the white man in gold, and the yellow fever took everyone?s soul.

[Chorus]
Grandaddy was a west Indian man,
Why Vivi why Muri en panam.

West Indian man, i want to recognize
Your iron will, your sacrifice.
You gave your life to build a path,
So oceans could meet inside the heart of panam

[Chorus]

Time has passed but discrimination endure,
We must work together to find its cure.
West Indian man, he came from the Caribbean and found a home and a new start in panama.

[Chorus]

That is where her blades come from.
From St. Lucy, he came down, etc...
