Hola, I was hoping someone could translate these lyrics. ¡Muchas gracias!

Por una mujer casada me dicen que he de morir
mentiras no me hacen nada
si ella me quiere seguir

A mi no me espanta el sueño
si me quieren asustar
no la consolo su dueño
yo la vengo a consolar

Por que la quize y la quiero
y no la podre olvidar
su marido anda diciendo
que a traicion me ha de matar

La suerte a los dos nos toca
pues tan solo en mi querer
tu marido ya no sopla
tu vas a ser mi mujer

El cuervo con tantas plumas
no se pudo mantener
y yo que ni plumas tengo
tengo querida y mujer

Por una mujer casada me dicen que he de morir
mentiras no me hacen nada
si ella me quiere seguir

Caveat on the translation to follow. There are a handful of places where a change in tone, emphasis, or punctuation could affect the direction of the translation. Not having heard the song, there are likely points that may be off-base. Take it with a grain of salt.

They tell me I am to die by a married woman
lies, they do nothing to me
if she wants to follow me

I have not fear of dreaming
if they want to frighten me
I do not console her owner
It is her I have come to console

Because I came to love her and love her still
and cannot forget her
her husband goes around saying
That he has to kill me for treason

Lady luck has smiled on us both
since just because I wanted it so
your husband has ceased to breathe
you are going to be my wife

the crow with all its feathers
wasn't able to keep them all
and I who don't have any
have a beloved and a wife

They tell me I am to die by a married woman
lies, they do nothing to me
if she wants to follow me
