Córdoba. Lejana y sola. 
Jaca negra, luna grande,
y aceitunas en mi alforja.
Aunque sepa los caminos
yo nunca llegaré a Córdoba. 
Por el llano, por el viento,
jaca negra, luna roja.
La muerte me está mirando
desde las torres de Córdoba. 
¡Ay qué camino tan largo!
¡Ay mi jaca valerosa!
¡Ay, que la muerte me espera,
antes de llegar a Córdoba! 
Córdoba. Lejana y sola.

La elipse de un grito,
va de monte
a monte. 
Desde los olivos,
será un arco iris negro
sobre la noche azul. 
¡Ay! 
Como un arco de viola,
el grito ha hecho vibrar
largas cuerdas del viento. 
¡Ay! 
(Las gentes de las cuevas
asoman sus velones) 
¡Ay!

Cuando sale la luna
se pierden las campanas
y aparecen las sendas
impenetrables.

Cuando sale la luna,
el mar cubre la tierra
y el corazón se siente
isla en el infinito.

Nadie come naranjas
bajo la luna llena.
Es preciso comer
fruta verde y helada.

Cuando sale la luna
de cién rostros iguales,
la moneda de plata
solloza en el bolsillo.

La muerte
entra y sale 
de la taberna. 
Pasan caballos negros
y gente siniestra 
por los hondos caminos
de la guitarra. 
Y hay un olor a sal
y a sangre [de hembra]1,
en los nardos febriles
de la marina.
La muerte 
entra y sale
y sale y entra
la muerte
de la taberna.
