We All Together - It's a Sin to Go Away (1972)

Founded by brothers Saul and Manuel Cornejo in 1971, this rock group lived, recorded, and released all of their music from their hometown of Lima, Peru. With songs in both English and Spanish, their accent in English-sung songs is never a concern, if even noticeable. Their songs never managed to make much of an impact in the US or Europe, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t any good. Some of their music, such as the song heard below, could have easily held their own in the US and UK charts had they received more exposure.

This song is the fourth track on their self-titled album released in 1972. The album is solid all the way through and features four cover songs: two tracks from WingsWild Life (1971) and two tracks from Badfinger’s Magic Christian Music (1970). This song, which is easily the best song put out by the group, is an original work that was later released on the second Nuggets compilation.

Lyrics:

Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Maybe I'll return
I will

When I turn my head, I saw the lights
That disappeared behind the trees
Then I saw the moon
It was the same
I start to cry hiding my face

Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Maybe I'll return
I will

Then I took the bread
She cooked for me
She said, “My son come back to me
Take my picture and remember this”
Those times are gone
Don't cry for me

Oh it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Maybe I'll return
I will

Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Oh, it's a sin to go away
Maybe I'll return
I will
