Interesting song. Recorded by a group called Ampersan.

EL COMPROMISO
(Patricio Hidalgo)

Cuando ya no cante sones ni cabalgue por el viento,
Ni cabalgue por el viento, cuando ya no cante sones,

Cuando ya no cante sones ni cabalgue por el viento,
Ni cabalgue por el viento, cuando ya no cante sones,

Recordarán mis pregones porque dejo el sentimiento
Porque dejo el sentimiento sembrado en sus corazones,

Recordarán mis pregones porque dejo el sentimiento
Porque dejo el sentimiento sembrado en sus corazones.

¡Adiós adiós, madre del río, madre del río, la lluvia negra en el caserío!
¡Adiós adiós, madre del monte madre del monte, la lluvia negra en el horizonte!

Aunque me miren a mí, humilde en mi proceder,
Humilde en mi proceder y aunque me miren a mí,

Aunque me miren a mí, humilde en mi proceder,
Humilde en mi proceder y aunque me miren a mí,

Es mi orgullo defender la tierra donde crecí,
Aunque me miren a mí, humilde mi proceder,

Es mi orgullo defender la tierra donde crecí,
Aunque me miren a mí, humilde mi proceder.

¡Adiós adiós, madre del río madre del río, la lluvia negra en el caserío!
¡Adiós adiós, madre del monte, madre del monte, la lluvia negra en el horizonte!

No me manden a lo oscuro y a morir como un traidor,
Y a morir como un traidor, no me manden a lo oscuro.

Yo soy bueno y como bueno moriré de cara al sol,
No me manden a lo oscuro a morir como un traidor.

¡Adiós adiós, padre maíz, madre jaguar, si muero en guerra me vuelvo monte para florear!

¡Adiós adiós, madre jaguar, padre maíz, si muero en guerra seré alimento de tu raíz!

When I no longer sing sons* or ride in the wind,
Nor ride in the wind, when I no longer sing sons,

When I no longer sing sons or ride in the wind,
Nor ride the wind, when I no longer sing sons,

You will remember my cries/speeches because I leave the feeling,
Because I leave the feeling sown in your hearts,

You will remember my cries/speeches because I leave the feeling,
Because I leave the feeling sown in your hearts.

Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, mother of the river, mother of the river, the black rain on the farmhouse!
Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, mother of the forest mother of the forest, the black rain on the horizon!

Even if they look at me, humble in my actions,
Humble in my actions and even if they look at me,

Even if they look at me, humble in my actions,
Humble in my actions and even if they look at me,

It is my pride to defend the land where I grew up,
Even if they look at me, humble my behavior,

It is my pride to defend the land where I grew up,
Even if they look at me, humble my behavior.

Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, mother of the river, mother of the river, the black rain on the farmhouse!
Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, mother of the forest, mother of the forest, the black rain on the horizon!

Don't send me into the dark to die like a traitor,
And to die like a traitor, don't send me into the dark.

I am a good man and as a good man I will die facing the sun.
Do not send me into the dark to die like a traitor.

Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, father corn, mother jaguar, if I die at war/fighting I'll become a forest to flourish!

Goodbye/farewell, goodbye/farewell, mother jaguar, father corn, if I die at war/fighting I will be food for your root!

*Son.
"madre del río" can be understood as "mother of the river" and "riverbed"
"monte" can be wood/forest or hill
