​Rio de Tenampa

This song is by Los Lobos and appears on the album Kiko (1992) and on the compilation album El Cancionero: Mas Y Mas (2000).

I sat at a table and wrote a good song
About eyes as blue as the sea
Drank down the whisky
And let out a sigh
And thought of how things used to be
Children played on the floor near the bar
With toys made of wood and string
Lovers kissed and others laughed
As the band would strum and sing

Habla me Rio de Tenampa
Canta me canciones de valor
En este rincon del cielo
Dejo mi carino y amor

And I passed once a place we'd go
To escape the heat of the day
Tell all the stories of good times and bad
And hear the violins play

Habla me Rio de Tenampa
Canta me canciones de valor
En este rincon del cielo
Dejo mi carino y amor

Remember the story about a lady on the hill
Gave roses to an Indian boy
Ran down to tell eveyone he knew
About his love and his hope and joy

Rain now falls on a plaza in town
At a fountain where mariachis sing
I wonder how long these memories would last
And dream what tomorrow would bring

Habla me Rio de Tenampa
Canta me canciones de valor
En este rincon del cielo
Dejo mi carino y amor

Habla me Rio de Tenampa
Canta me canciones de valor
En este rincon del cielo
Dejo mi carino y amor
