Joan Baez – La Llorona lyrics

La Llorona

Todos me dicen el negro, llorona
Negro pero cariñoso
Yo soy como el chile verde, llorona
Picante pero sabroso.

Ay! De mi, llorona
Llorona de ayer y hoy
Ayer maravilla fui, llorona
Y ahora ni sombra soy

Dicen que no tengo duelo, llorona
Porque no me ven llorar
Hay muertos que no hacen ruido, llorona
Y es mas grande su penar

Ay! De mi, llorona
Llorona de azul celeste
Y aunque la vida me cuesta, llorona
No dejare de quererte

    There is no meaning. I know that probably it is more know this tale as a mexican tale, but is a very hispanic legend. I am from panama. And there is a book call the ahogado written by solarte tristan. In his book la llorona is a beautiful woman that gets seduced by a strange and handsome man. After that she get's in a trance of delusion and believe the devil was impregnated her, eventually she dies. The book it is the story about the boy, is a beautiful story.
