Mercedes Sosa – La Arenosa lyrics

La arenosa

Arenosa, arenosita
Mi tierra cafayatea
El que bebe de su vino
Gana sueo y pierde pena.

El agua de calchaqui
Padre de todas las siembras
Cuando uno se va y no vuelve
Canta llorando y se aleja.

Arena, arenita
Arena, tapa mi huella
Para que en las vendimias
Mi vida yo vuelva a verla.

Luna de los medanales
Lunita cafayatea
Luna de arena morena
En carnavales de ausencia.

Deja que beba en tu vino
La savia cafayatea
Y que me pierda en la cueca
Cantando antes que me muera.
Arena, arenita
Arena, tapa mi huella
Para que en las vendimias
Mi vida yo vuelva a verla.

Gustavo Leguizamn
M. J. Castilla
