Original by Alonso del Río

lyrics

Desde el tiempo en que mi abuelo soñó
que un día yo viviría para cantarles esta canción
Desde el tiempo en que mi abuela soñó
que un día yo moriría para entregarles mi corazón

Y vivo cantando por mi camino
me va alegrando un viejo tambor
Y vivo danzando por mi camino
me va guiando un viejo tambor

Por las montañas veo que mi águila va
buscandome el camino, camino rojo del corazón (x2)

Por las quebradas veo mi cóndor volar
y siento que voy abriendo como en sus alas mi corazón (x2)

[English Translation (approx)]:
From the time my grandfather dreamed
That one day I would live to sing this song
From the time my grandmother dreamed
That one day I would die to offer my heart

And I live singing on my way
My old drum brings me joy
And I live dancing my way
My old drum guides me

Over the mountains I see that my eagle is going
Looking for the way, the red path of the heart (x2)

Over the ravines I see my condor fly
And I feel that I open, my heart has opened its wings (x2)
