Viniendo de Chilecito
En el camino encontré,
A un riojano guapo
que el me quiso
y me enamoré.

Chilecito, flor de mi hogar,
Por donde quiera que vaya
De este riojano m'hei de acordar.

Chilecito, Chilecito,
Para olvidar las penas
Que ya me matan en Tabacal.

Aus Chilecito kommend
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Aus Chilecito kommend,
auf dem Weg fand ich
einen gut aussehende Man aus Rioja
der mich geliebt hat,
und ich habe mich in Ihm verliebt.
Chilecito, Blume meines Heims
Wohin ich gehen werde,
werde ich mich an dieser Riojaner erinnern.
Chilecito, Chilecito,
um die Leiden zu vergessen,
die mich in Tabacal fertig machen.
