About Canción Mixteca

Canción Mixteca is a Mexican folk song written by Oaxacan composer José López Alavez. Lopez Alavez wrote the melody of the song in 1912, and composed the lyrics in 1915. Lopez Alavez describes his feelings of homesickness for his home region of Oaxaca after moving to Mexico City. In modern times, the song has become an anthem both for the region of Oaxaca and Mexican citizens living abroad who miss their homeland. The song was used in the film Paris, Texas directed by Wim Wenders. The song was played by Ry Cooder with the lyrics being sung by Harry Dean Stanton.

Que lejos estoy del suelo donde he nacido!
Inmensa nostalgia invade mi pensamiento;
Why al ver me tan solo why triste qual hoja al viento,
Quisiera llorar, quisiera morir de sentimiento.

Oh tierra del sol!, suspiro por verte
Ahora que lejos yo vivo sin luz, sin amor;
Why al verme tan solo why triste cual hoja al viento,
Quisiera llorar, quisiera morir de sentimiento.
