Hey for years I've been singing Mi caballo blanco a song reportedly found on some Weavers album. I learned it from a friend. I used to work with Puerto Rican teenagers and they would crack up as I sang it at he top of my voice driving around with like 10 of them in my Honda Civic. Any way I really want the rest of the verses. Anybody?

Is this any help at all? Probably not! Translation from a Google search.

My white horse The Huasos Quincheros

It is my white horse like a dawn, juntitos we always go, he is my faithful friend but.

My horse, my horse galopando it goes. My horse, my horse one goes away and one goes away.

In wings of a happiness my horse ran, and in arms of one it suffers also it took to me.

To the taita God I request to him and it knows it very well, if it calls me to its side in my blanquito I will go

Here are the lyrics direct from The Weaver's Songbook:

Mi Caballo Blanco

by Francisco Del Campo, arranged and adapted by Erik Darling, Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays and Fred Hellerman

1. Es mi caballo blanco como un a manacer
Siempre juntitos vamos, es mi amigo mas fiel


Mi caballo mi caballo, galopan do va
Mi caballo, mi caballo, se va y se va, Ah

2. En a las de una dicha, mi caballo corrido
En a las de una pena el tambien me llevo

3. Al Taiti Dios le pido y el lo sabe muy bien
Si a Su lado me llama en mi caballo ire


1. My horse is fair as the dawn, always we go together
He's my most faithful friend, gallopong, he goes and he goes

2. On wings of joy my horse runs - and on wings of Sorrow,too, he carries me

3. I pray to God, and well He knows,
If He calls me to His side On my horse I will go

Bev and Jerry ^^

Try this one. The English verses rhyme and are a good translation for the Spanish, sing them after the Spanish verse. Sing the chorus in Spanish only. Sorry I don't know the middle verse. This is how it was taught to me by my guitar teacher.

Verse 1:
Es mi caballo blanco, como un amanacer
Siempre juntitos vamos, es mi amigo mas fiel

Mi caballo, mi caballo, galopando va
Mi caballo, mi caballo, se va y se va

He is my horse of white, bright as the dawning day
Always we are together, most loyal friends we stay

Alto a Dios le pido, y el lo sabe muy bien
Si a su lado me llamo, en my caballi ire

I pray to God Almighty, so very well he'll know
When to his side He calls me, on my white horse I'll go

At school I learnt

He is my white caballo
No better friend than he
Always we are together
My caballo and me

Mi caballo mi caballo we gallop away (x2)

I wish I could remember the rest.
