Galopa vento campeiro
Cante nos descampados
O acalanto à essa gente
Que rondam os aramados
Homem de mãos calejadas
Acampam em corredores
Amadrinham esperanças
Nas promessas dos "senhores".
Seguindo pelas estradas
Carregam cheiro de campo
Chegam aos "olhos da noite"
Patrilhando tudo e nada.
Sonham com aroma da palha
junto a terra plantada
Grãos - terna recompensa
Tragam rimas douradas.
Seguem cativos da terra
Alentos, andejam beirais
Guardam a essência sinuela
Lutam por seus ideais
