    Can someone please translate the words below from the song

    " Ponta de Areia" into English for me, I really like the way Esperanza Spalding sings it on her cd.

    Ponta de areia
    Ponto final
    Da Bahia-Minas
    Estrada natural
    Que ligava Minas
    Ao porto do mar
    Caminho de ferro
    Mandaram arrancar

    Velho maquinista
    Com seu boné
    Lembra do povo alegre
    Que vinha cortejar
    Maria Fumaça
    Não canta mais
    Para moças
    Flores janelas
    E quintais

    Na praça vazia
    Um grito, um oi
    Casas esquecidas
    Viúvas nos portais


    Thanks.
