Lyr/Chords Req: Mexican song sites

From: GUEST,Fred

Does anyone know of any handy sites for lyrics for Mexican songs. I remember just the beginning of one I would like to recall:

Alla in el rancho grande,
Alla donde vivia,...

and then Que allegre me dicia (X3).

I would appreciate any help on this one. (I am always amazed at how quickly such help arrives from the Mudcat.)

Try these too. The other phrase did not return any relevant results......

Mexican Music
Mariachi Music
Mexican Songs
Mexican Midis
Not always Mexican, but all in Spanish

Some good links there, Sorcha. But the Mexican Songs site from the high school in Indiana cracked me up.

I have a large dog and he is called B-I-N-G-O ...

ROTFLMAO

Another verse not on site linked by Sorcha the adroit linker:

Nunca me fies de promesas,
Ni mucho menos de amores;
Que si te dan calabasas,
Veras lo que son ardores.

Free trans: Don't give me promises or talk to me of love, but if you bring me pumpkins, make sure they're good ones.

That may or may not be inuendo and may or may not be the reason why that verse was not included.

There is a group in San Diego called "Los Californios" which has done at least one CD of Mexican trad stuff. Not Rancho Grande but Capotin, Sombrero Blanco and much else. Don't know if that's for sale other than privately. They also collected a Mexican version of "Oh Susana."

Susana paseaba en un buque de vapor
Lloraba por su madre y lloraba por su_amor.
Ay, Susana! no llores para mi,
Porque voy a San Francisco hallar oro para ti.

Poco tiempo San Francisco, poco tiempo Mazatlan, Se hacemos muy rico, con dinero pa' gaspar. Ay, Susana ....

Freely: S. travelled on a steamer. She was crying for her mother and her lover. Oh, Susana, don't you cry for me, 'cause I bound for San Francisco to get gold you.

A little time in Frisco, a little time in Mazatlan, and we'll become rich with money to throw around.

Another good search key on this would be Charles Lummis, whose collection of Edison cylinders, transcriptions, etc. ended up at the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles.

Any MP3 files or streaming media for this stuff. No hablo espaniol but my brother-in-law is from Mexico and I would like to learn a better song than Coplas to sing for him and my 6 year old niece.

Check some of Sorcha's links. Some of them have at least some MIDIs.
