Cielito Lindo

SOURCE'S SOURCE: Jose-Luis Orozco (his workshop, 1988 Old Songs Festival)

A      E7      A        E7     A         E7
Ese lunar que tienes, cielito lindo, junto a la boca
E7                                              A
No se lo des a nadie, cielito lindo, que ami' me toca
    A        D    E7
CH: Ay ay ay ay, canta y no llores
        E                                              A
    Porque cantando se allegran, cielito lindo, los corazones

De la sierra morena, cielito lindo, vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros, cielito lindo, de contrabando

De tu casa a la mia, cielito lindo, no hay mas que un paso
Ahora que estamos solos, cielito lindo, dame un brazo

Una flecha en el aire, cielito lindo, lanzo' cupido
Y como fue' jugando, cielito lindo, yo fui' el herido


That beauty mark that you have near your mouth
Don't [? to anyone that I loved to touch it.

CH: Ay ay ay ay, sing and don't cry
    Because singing gladdens the heart

From the Sierra Morena arrives descending
A pair of black eyes, of contraband

From your house to mine is no more than a step
Now that we are alone give me a hug

An arrow in the air cupid launched
And as it went playing, I was the wounded one
