Allá Arriba, En Aquella Montaña
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Allá arriba, en aquella montaña, 
yo corté una caña, yo corté un clavel.
Labrador ha de ser, labrador,
que mi amante lo es.
No le quiero molinero, 
que me da con el maquilandero.
Yo le quiero labrador, 
que coja las mulas y se vaya a arar 
y a la medianoche me venga a rondar.
Entra labrador si vienes a verme. 
Si vienes a verme ven por el corral,
sube por el naranjo, que seguro vas.
Entra labrador si vienes a verme.
