El Preso Numero Nueve

Joan Baez

Al preso numero nueve, ya lo van a confesar
Está rezando en la celda con el cura del penal
Porque ante este amanecer, la vida le han de quitar
Porque mató a su mujer y un amigo desleal
Dice, así, al confesar "los maté, si señor
Y si yo vuelvo a nacer, yo los vuelvo a matar

Padre no me arrepiento, ni me da miedo la eternidad
Yo sé que allá en el cielo el ser supremo nos juzgará
Voy a seguir sus pasos, voy a buscarlos al mas allá."
Ay. yayayayayyyyy

El preso numero nueve era un hombre muy cabal
Iba el noche del duelo, muy contento a su jacal
Pero al mirar a su amor, en brazos de su rival,
Ardió en su pecho el rencor y no se pudo aguantar.
Al sonar el clarín, se formó el pelotón
Y rumbo al paredón, se oye al preso decir:

Padre no me arrepiento, ni me da miedo la eternidad
Yo sé que allá en el cielo el ser supremo nos juzgará
Voy a seguir sus pasos, voy a buscarllos al mas allá.
Ay. yayayayayyyyy yaay
