  • Lyrics: On the trunk of a tree near the corner of Rogers and Honore Hundreds of people believe they have seen the Virgin of Guadalupe The bus stop shelter houses a shrine of votives and floral wreaths Maintained by faithful; sustained by vision, Confirming belief Some say they can’t see it; it’s only a form, shaped vaguely like someone enrobed A trick of the light; a coincidence, fleshed out by our frontal lobes It’s hard to deny there’s something that’s difficult to define Virgin or not, there’s a convergence of everyday with the divine I’ll take the illusion, suffer delusion if it brings a little peace Las Abuelas y sus nietos…. light candles after dark Fewer gangstas and banditos ……….escape from police Es un milagro, amigo…. Now I believe in Our Lady of Rogers Park. We hear fewer sirens on late summer nights, at least it seems that way When the neighbors sit vigil and candles are burning at Rogers and Honore The lighthearted reverence shown by the skeptics adds to the hallowed repose The heart can believe what the eye cannot see but the soul is sure that it knows.
