Al preso número 9 Ya lo van a confesar Está rezando en la celda Con el cura del penal

Porque antes de amanecer La vida le han de quitar Porque mató a su mujer Y a un amigo desleal

Dice asi al confesor: Los maté, sí señor, Y si vuelvo a nacer Yo los vuelvo a matar

Padre no me arrepiento Ni me da miedo la eternidad Yo sé que allá en el cielo El ser supremo me juzgará Voy a seguir sus pasos Voy a buscarlos al mas allá, Ay, ay, ay!

El preso número 9 Era un hombre muy cabal Iba la noche del duelo Muy contento a su jacal

Pero al mirar a su amor En brazos de su rival Sintió en su pecho el rencor Y no se pudo aguantar

Al sonar el clarín Se formó el pelotón Y rumbo al paredón Se oyó al preso decir

Padre no me arrepiento Ni me da miedo la eternidad Yo sé que allá en el cielo El ser supremo me ha de juzgar Voy a seguir sus pasos Voy a buscarlos al mas allá, Ay! Category:

The jailed man number nine (a man in jail with the no. 9) Is going to have his confession (with the "Padre", the catholic confession) He is praying in his cell With the jail's priest.

Because, before the sun comes up they take his life (kill him) because he murdered his wife and an unloyal friend

Says this when he confesses: "I killed 'em, yes Sir. and if I'm reborn, I'll kill 'em again"

"Padre (the priest), I have no regrets and have no afraid of eternity. I know, up in Heaven, the Supreme Lord will judge me. I'll follow their steps, I'll follow them to the beyond (next life). Ay, ay, ay!

The no. 9 jailed man, was a very brave man. That night he was going so happy to his "jacal" (house made of wood and sticks)

But when he saw his love in the arms of his rival, he felt the anger in his heart and he couldn't stand it.

At the sound of the trumpet, the army gathered 'round and standing at the wall the jailed man said:

"Padre (the priest), I have no regrets and have no afraid of eternity. I know, up in Heaven, the Supreme Lord will judge me. I'll follow their steps, I'll follow them to the beyond (next life). Ay!
