Default Corrido de Joaquin Murieta

Corrido de Joaquin Murieta from 1800's:

Ahora salgo a los caminos
A matar a americanos
Tu fuistes el promoter
De la muerte de mi hermano
Lo agarrastes indefenso
Desgraciado Americano.

A los ricos y avarientos
Yo les quite su dinero
A los humildes y pobres
Yo me quitaba el sombrero
Ay, que leyes tan injustas
Voy a darme a bandolero

Translation:
Now I go out onto roads
To kill Americans
You were the cause
Of my brothers death
You took him defenseless
You disgraceful American.

From the rich and avaricious
I took their money
To the humble and poor
I tipped my hat
Oh, what unjust laws
Im going to become a bandit.

Default The Ballad of Juaquin Murrieta in Spanish and English

Yo no soy americano
pero comprendo ingles
yo lo aprendi con mi hermano
al derecho y al reves
A cualquier americano
lo hago temblar a mis pies

Cuando apenas era un nino
huerfano a mi me dejaron
Nadie me hizo pi un carino
a mi hermano lo mataron
y a mi esposa Carmelita
cobardes la asesinarion

Yo me vine de Hermosillo
en busca de oro y riqueza
Al indio pobre y sencillo
lo defendi con fiereza
y a buen precio los sherifes
pagaban por mi cabeza

A los ricos avarientos
yo les quite su dinero
con los humildes y pobres
yo me quite mi sombrero
ay que leyes tan injustas
fue llamarme bandolero

A Murrieta no le gusta
lo que hace no es desmintir
Vengo a vengar a mi esposa
y lo vuelvo a repetir
Carmelita tan Hermosa
como la hicieron sufrir

Por cantinas me meti
castigando americanos
Tu seras el capitan
que mataste a mi hermano
Lo agarrastes indefensio
orgulloso americano

Part II
Mi carrera comenzo
por una escena terrible
cuando llegue a setecientos
ya mi nombre era terrible
cuando llegue a mil doscientos
ya mi nombre era terrible

Yo soy aquel que domino
hasta leones africanos
por eso salgo al camino
a matar americanos
ya no es otro mi destino
ipon cuidado, parroquianos!

Las pisotlas y las dagas
son juguetes para mi
Balazos y punaldas
carcajadas para mi


I am not an american
but I understand english
I learned it with my brother
forwards and backwards
and any american
I make tremble at my feet

when I was barely a child
I was left an orphan
No one gave me any love
they killed my brother
and my wife Carmelita
the cowards assassinated her

I came from Hermosillo
in search of gold and riches
the indian poor and simple
I defended with fierceness
and a good price the sheriffs
would pay for my head

from the greedy rich
I took away their money
with the humble and poor
I took off my hat
Oh what laws so unjust
to call me a highwayman

Murrieta does not like to be falsely accused

I came to avenge my wife
and again I repeat it
Carmelita so lovely
how they made her suffer

through bars I went
punishing americans
You must be the captain
who killed my brother
you grabbed him defenseless
You stuck up american

Part II
My career began
because of a terrible scene
when I got to seven hundred (killed)
then my name was feared
when I got to twelve hundred
then my name was (really) feared

I am the one who dominates
even african lions
that's why I go out on the road
to kill americans
Now my destiny is no other
watch out you people!

Pistols and daggers
are playthings for me
Bullets and stabbings
big laughs for me

When you think about it, this really was a tragic story and all the destruction it caused on so many levels. EHP

Yeah they put Joaquin's head in a jar and charged the folk to come see it. Could have been worse, look what they did to Dillinger.

Somewhere I have the music score for this, but here it is ... la corrida
