Salieron de San Isidro,
Procedentes de Tijuana,
Traian las llantas del carro
Repletas de hierba mala,
Eran Emilio Varela,
Y Camelia, la Texana
Pasaron por San Clemente
Los paro la emigracion,
Les pidio sus documentos,
Les dijo: De donde son?
Ella era de San Antonio,
Un hembra de corazon.
Una hembra si quiere un hombre,
Por el puede dar la vida,
Pero hay que tener cuidado
Si esa hembra se siente herida,
La traicion y el contrabando...
Son cosas incompartidas.
A Los Angeles llegaron,
A Hollywood se pasaron,
En un callejon oscuro
Las cuatro llantas cambiaron,
Ahi entregaron la hierba...
Y ahi tan bien les pagaron
Emilio dice a Camelia:
Hoy te das por despedida,
Con la parte que te toca
Tu puedes rehacer tu vida,
Yo me voy pa' San Francisco,
Con la duena de mi vida
Sonaron siete balazos,
Camelia a Emilio mataba,
La polica solo hallo
Una pistola tirada,
Del dinero y de Camelia...
Nunca mas se supo nada

    This is thought to be the first narco-corrido, a ballad about narcotics trafficking, to have a woman as the protagonist. Camelia, La Texana, gets romantically involved with Emilio Varela, a married man and a criminal. He seduces her and convinces her to help him smuggle a load of Marijuana, "hierba mala", hidden in the wheels of a car. They are successfully deliver the load and are well paid. Emilio at that point gives Camelia her share of the money and tells her to use it to start a new life because he is going to return to his wife. Camelia is unwilling to accept being scorned and kill him shooting him seven times. The police only find the body and gun, Camelia escapes with the money.
