"Laredo"

I leave now to go to Laredo my love, I come here to say farewell.
While I'm there I will sorely miss you, my love, how much I can never tell.
And this golden key, now take it, my love, and open my secret
heart:
How much I shall always want you, my love, and how great my pain to part.
And take now the chest of treasures, my love, and all that it may contain.
It hold all my great devotion, my love, my passion and sometimes pain.
I leave now to go to Laredo, my love, I come here to say farewell.
While I'm there, I will sorely miss you, my love, how much I can never tell.
Spanish
Ya me voy para el Laredo, mi bien, Te vengo a decir adios.
Da alla te mando decir, mi bien, como se mancuernan dos.
Toma esa llavita de oro, mi bien, abre mi pecho y veras:
Lo mucho que yo te quiero, mi bien, y el mal pago que me das.
Toma esa caji ta de oro, mi bien, mira lo que lleva dentro.
Lleva amores, lleva celos, mi bien, Y un poco de sentimiento.
Ya me voy para el Laredo, mi bien, Te vengo a decir adios.
Da alla te mando decir, mi bien, como se mancuernan dos.
