"Paloma Negra" is a ranchera song written by Tomás Méndez and released by Lola Beltrán from her album La Grande in 1988. This version draws heavily from Chavela Vargas's cover. It's a truly demented song about wanting to own the person you claim to love. All apologies to the brilliant musicians who have done this song justice over the years, I hope my version doesn't offend anyone too much!


Ya me canso de llorar y no amanece
Ya no sé si maldecirte o por ti rezar
Tengo miedo de buscarte y de encontrarte
Donde me aseguran mis amigos que te vas
Hay momentos en que quisiera mejor rajarme
Y arrancarme ya los clavos de mi penar
Pero mis ojos se mueren sin mirar tus ojos
Y mi cariño con la aurora te vuelve a esperar
Ya agarraste por tu cuenta las parrandas
Paloma negra, paloma negra, dónde, dónde andarás
Ya no juegues con mi honra parrandera
Si tus caricias deben ser mías, de nadie más
