Me contaron los abuelos que hace tiempo
Navegaba en el Cesar una piragua
Que partнa de El Banco viejo puerto
A las playas de amor en Chimichagua.

Capoteando el vendaval se estremecнa
E impasible desafiaba la tormenta
Y un ejйrcito de estrellas la seguнa
Tachonбndola de luz y de leyenda.

Era la piragua de Guillermo Cubillos.
Era la piragua.
Era la piragua. (bis)

Doce bogas con la piel color majagua
Y con ellas el temible Pedro Albundнa
En las noches a los remos arrancaban
Su melуdico rugir de hermosa cumbia.

Doce sombras ahora viejas ya no reman
Ya no cruje el maderamen en el agua
Solo quedan los recuerdos en la arena
Donde yace dormitando la piragua.

Era la piragua de Guillermo Cubillos.
Era la piragua.
Era la piragua. (bis)

La piragua.
La piragua.
La piragua.
La piragua.
