Voz de la guitarra mнa,
al despertar la maсana
quiere cantar su alegrнa
a mi tierra mexicana

Yo le canto a sus volcanes
a sus praderas y flores
que son como talismanes
del amor de mis amores

Mйxico Lindo y Querido
si muero lejos de ti
que digan que estoy dormido
y que me traigan aquн

Que digan que estoy dormido
y que me traigan aquн
Mйxico Lindo y Querido
si muero lejos de ti

Que me entierren en la sierra
al pie de los magueyales
y que me cubra esta tierra
que es cuna de hombres cabales

Voz de la guitarra mнa,
al despertar la maсana
quiere cantar su alegrнa
a mi tierra mexicana

Mйxico Lindo y Querido
si muero lejos de ti
que digan que estoy dormido
y que me traigan aquн

Que digan que estoy dormido
y que me traigan aquн
Mйxico Lindo y Querido
si muero lejos de ti

    I was raised in the us since the age of 5. This is a song that makes your hair in the back of your neck stand and that will give you chills if heard for the first time of your life at the age of 45.

    I was raised in Poland, and at the age of 67 this song makes my hair (what is left) in the back of my neck stand and gives me chills and tears in my eyes. Even I don't understand all the lyrics I think of my beloved country that cannot shake off all the intruders from the east and the west. Lucky, lucky Mexico .

    It is for the immigrant that leaves mexico in search of a better life. They still have an attachmnent to the land of their father and to someday return living or dead. As the other land never have as much inpact as the motherland
