Jorge Negrete - La Adelita (English translation)

English translation

Adelita

If Adelita went away with another
I would follow her by land and by sea
by sea in a warship
by land in a military train
 
The bugle sounds, to announce the war
the brave warrior comes out to fight
rivers of blood will flow
a tyrant in power, never
 
And if I died in battle
and if my body will lie in the ground
Adelita for God´s sake I beg you
don´t cry for me
 
Don´t cry anymore my dear Adelita
don´t cry my dear woman
don´t be ungrateful with me
don´t make me suffer
 
I say goodbye now, my dear Adelita
I will go away with great pleasure
I carry your picture in my chest
like a shield, to win every battle
 
I am a soldier and my country summons me
to the fields, to fight
Adelita, dear Adelita
for God´s sake, never forget me
 
By night, walking in the field
I hear the bugle calling for a meeting
and I repeat deeply in my soul
Adelita is my only love
 
I say goodbye now, my dear Adelita
I would like to carry a memory of you
I carry your picture in my chest
like a shield, to win every battle
