1. Bonita rama de sauce [sung text checked 1 time]

Bonita rama de sauce, 
bonita rama de amor,
nunca floreció, que siempre 
se quedó diciendo adiós.
El río pasa y la peina, 
el río la jura amar. 
La rama le da sus trenzas. 
El río miente y se va.
El viento pasa y la besa,
el tallo le hace cimbrar,
toda la ramita canta, 
el viento miente y se va.
Se va, se va,
y la ramita se inclina, 
no la vean suspirar.

Bonita rama de sauce, 
bonita rama de amor,
florecida de alegría
con el alba amaneció.
Debajo de su caricia
dormido estaba el cantor,
por la guitarra y la boca 
le latia una canción.
Más dulce que viento y río,
la noche entera cantó,
coronado por la rama, 
abrazadito quedó.
Cantar, cantar,
las verdes coplas del sauce,
altas por el cielo van.
