Anybody out there have the Spanish lyrics to "Red River Valley"? A version can be heard briefly in the film, "All the Pretty Horses," during a scene at the Mexican prison. Googling hasn't helped. Only found one version that way and the lyrics don't really seem to work within the constraints of the original tune.

Here's what I found (as mentioned above). By the time you get to the second line you realize this just isn't do-able within the constraints of the traditional tune.

Valle De Rojo Del Rio

Desde este valle que dicen que van
Echaremos de menos tus ojos brillantes y sonrisa dulce
Porque dicen que usted está tomando el sol
Esto ha iluminado nuestro camino por un tiempo

Ven y siéntate a mi lado si me quieres
No se apresuren a mi adiós
Pero recuerde el Valle del Río Rojo
Y el vaquero que te amó de tal verdad

¿No te parece el valle te vas
¡Oh, qué soledad, qué triste será?
Oh pensar en el corazón cariño que está rompiendo
Y el dolor que están causando a mí

A medida que vaya a su casa junto al mar
Que nunca se le olvida las horas dulces
Que pasó en el Valle del Río Rojo
Y el amor que intercambiaron mediados de las flores

por James Kerrigen en 1896

No, just in the film. The version that is used in the film refers to "el lindo valle," instead of "el valle del Rio Rojo." Thanks.

Is this what you're looking for? I've heard Arthur Johnstone do it, but so did Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. The tune is certainly Red River Valley.

The tune all right, but would not have been used in Mexico. Perhaps there were never more than a few words for the flick, not a complete lyric.

The Spanish lyrics on Wiki are a translation, they can't be sung. On Altavoz del frente you can find the very same translation AND a Spanish adaptation by Pi de la Serra and Pere Camps that can be sung to the tune but there's no "lindo valle" in it.

On the other hand the Mexicans were great supporters of the the democratic forces in Spain when Jarama Valley was written by members of the International Brigade .. so it could easily have been sung in Spanish in Mexico

There are two Esperanto versions in Donu Hejmon al mi, my 1996 songbook, but I don't have it in front of me. One starts "Nian valon laÅ­dire vi lasos", the other "Nian valon vi baldaÅ­ forlasos"; both are based on "Red River Valley". Wouldn't surprise me if there's an Esperanto version of "Jarama Valley" out there, tooâ€"Catalonia was a hotbed of Esperantism before, during and after the warâ€"but I've never run across it. If desired I'll be happy to type out one or both of these.

Might as well have the only singable Spanish text yet suggested here in case the site it came from disappears or whatever.


El Valle del Jarama
(Adaptación: Pi de la Serra y Pere Camps)

Fue en España en el valle del Jarama
lugar que nunca podré olvidar
pues allí cayeron camaradas
jóvenes que fueron a luchar.

Nuestro batallón era el Lincoln
luchando por defender Madrid
con el pueblo hermanados peleamos
los de la Quince Brigada allí.

Lejos ya de ese valle de lágrimas
su recuerdo nadie borrará
Y así antes de despedirnos
recordemos quien murió allá.

I believe I've finally got the one verse I needed.

Ven acqui a mi lado si me quieres/No te apures a de sirve tu adios/
Mas e recuerda dia en lindo valle/Y el vaquero que tanto te amor.

I'm still searching for Mr. Prada, however. It's been quite a journey. More to follow.

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.

Why can't someone here watch the movies and write down the lyrics for all to see? I would, but my Dpanish is very weak.
