"El Son de la Negra" ("The Song of the Black Woman") is a Mexican folk song, originally from the South of Jalisco,[1] best known from an adaptation by Jaliscian musical composer Blas Galindo in 1940 for his suite Sones de mariachi.[2][3][4] It is commonly referred to as the "second national anthem of Mexico." The master piece was presented for the first time in the city of New York, but Jesús Jáuregui, a Mexican ethnologist, claims that along its history the song has undergone modifications and arrangements that can hardly be attributed to a single author or epoque.[5] The song has become representative of Mexican folk or relative to Mexico worldwide.[5] Jáureguis's more than two decades of research were presented on 15 July 2010 at a conference held in the state of Nayarit under the patronage of the state's Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes.[6] Among the specific topics discussed were the origin and authorship of the tune, its first recordings, excerpts from Galindo's memoirs, and photographs of older scores and lyrics.[6]

Negrita de mis pesares,
hojas de papel volando.
Negrita de mis pesares,
hojas de papel volando.
A todos diles que sí
pero no les digas cuándo.
Así me dijiste a mí;
por eso vivo penando.

¿Cuándo me traes a mi negra?
Que la quiero ver aquí
con su rebozo de seda
que le traje de Tepic.

¿Cuándo me traes a mi negra?
Que la quiero ver aquí
con su rebozo de seda
que le traje de Tepic.
