Thread Name: Lyr Req: Spanish lyrics to 'Red River Valley'?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Spanish lyrics to 'Red River Valley'?
There's a catalans song appears the tune was from that.
About (allegedly) one of the many Spanish Civil Wars, and an Irish Brigade soldier. Irish are famous for winning wars for every country except... Ireland.

But I heard the song in the Pretty Horses movie. I had tuned in late and didn't catch the title of the film. Now I know.

I kept looking for it and getting the Catalans version and the incredibly sparse history lesson.

Right now I have a dual mission, find the Valle Rio Rojo lyrics and the Mex version of Dylan's "Blowing in the Wind" which one of my jail friends from Parral Chihuahua Mexico who sang it to me right before lockdown and was transferred early the next morning. Bummers all around. But hey, I love the musical way of speaking that underlies all Spanish language(s). Makes it easier to sing.
