Tienes el alma de provinciana,
hueles a limpio, rosa temprana,
         G7             C
a verde jara fresca del rio,
            G7          C
son mil palomas tu caserio:
Guadalajara, Guadalajara,
Ab                     C
hueles a pura tierra mojada.

Ay! Colomitos lejanos,

Ay! ojitos de agua hermanos,
         D          G
Ay! Colomitos inolvidables,
       D               G
inolvidables como las tardes,
            D               G
en que la lluvia desde la loma,
       D             G    (theme)
irnos hacia hasta Zapopan.

Ay! Tlaquepaque pueblito,
tus olorosos jarritos
hacen mas fresco el dulce tepache
para la birria, junto al mariachi,
que en los parianes y alfarerias
suena con tristes melancolias.

Ay! Laguna de Chapala,   
tienes de un cuento la magia,
cuentos de ocasos y de alboradas,
de enamoradas noches lunadas;
quieta, Chapala, es tu laguna,   
novia romantica como ninguna.

Ay! Zapopitan del alma,
nunca escuche otras campanas
como las graves de tu convento,
donde se alivian mis sufrimientos.
Triste Zapopan, misal abierto,
donde son frailes mis pensamientos.

[Pepe Guizar. "The song "Guadalajara" is in the rhythm of the traditional son. It was written by the late, very well-known Mexican songwriter Jose (Pepe) Guizar, most likely in 1937. It is among the most requested of songs played by the Mariachi ensemble."]
