La nieve de los años
Trio Vegabajeño Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Se esta poniendo blanca toda mi cabellera
la nieve de los años me esta cayendo ya
se arrugara mi frente de tantas primaveras
quiero vivir tranquilo y descansar en paz.

Le pedí a Jesucristo que un ida me permitiera
regresar a mi patria y su tierra besar
para que cuando muera que entierren mi cadáver
junto a mi madrecita y descansar en paz.

Mi guitarra que siempre fue mi fiel compañera
que siempre en mis tristezas, sus cuerdas me inspiró
y ahora que con los años quiero estar junto a ella
esperando que muera para morirme yo.

Mi guitarra que siempre fue mi fiel compañera
que siempre en mis tristezas, sus cuerdas me inspiró




y ahora que con los años quiero estar junto a ella
esperando que muera para morirme yo.
