El viento lo balanceaba,
Hay que recuerdo mas negro
Era el cuerpo de mi padre
Que tenia una soga al cuello
Lo habian colgado el Domingo
De las ramas de aquel cedro.

Yo apenas tenia 10 aсos
Lance mi llanto de niсo
El perro tenia un balazo
Lo supe por sus aullidos
Pero arrastraba una espuela
Era de los asesinos.

Seсor juez le pertenese
Tal vez ya se le olvido
Yo soy Jesus Maldonado
Hijo de aquel que colgo
Ya supondra los motivos
Por los que lo busco yo

Despues de todas las leyes
No van a poder salvarlo
Si usted no quiere pelea
Lo arrastrare en mi caballo
De las ramas de a quel cedro
Lo voy a dejar colgado.

En El Paso del Coyote
Venga muy bien preparado
Sus hijos no tienen culpa
Pero eso no viene al caso
Si usted no llega a las doce
Talvez no vuelva a mirarlos

La muerte andaba a caballo
Los hechos los presencio
En El Paso del Coyote
Este caso sucedio
Ahi Jesus Maldonado
A un juez de letras colgo.

    Corrido: singing of actual facts. The son of a man whom was hanged after a trial where the judge in fact knew was inoccent, hangs that judge on the same tree branches were he saw his dad's body hung and being swung by the wind at the age of 10 when he was just a kid. He sings of the "dog" been wounded by a bullet.. He could tell by its cries, and sings: but he was draggin a spur he was one of the assasins. Perhaps the judge was the assasin and trialed the kids dad to get a way from it?
