Tú no tienes la culpa
y yo a ti te culpo
tú no tienes la culpa
y yo a ti te culpo
me lo alevanten
me lo murmuran ay esas malas lenguas
que andan por el mundo
tú no tienes la culpa
y yo a ti te culpo

A la sierra de Armenia
yo me quiero ir
y a la sierra de Armenia
yo me quiero ir
donde no hubiera
donde no hubiere moros ni cristianos
que hablen de mí
y a la sierra de Armenia
yo me quiero ir

Y de noche no duermo
de día tampoco
pensando en mi compañero
yo me vuelvo loca

First two recorded by Pastora Pavón "Niña de los Peines." Notice that the last one is sung one line after another, typical for ending cantes.

Norman you are a star! I should have known you would help me out!

Are we going to see you in Sanlucar this year? It's going to be my first visit to Gerardo's curso.

Hope so! You're going to have a good time, except for the sore hands, as others have said.

Be sure to listen to Pastora's versions, especially the first letra. They used to sing that one differently and, in this case, the voices are very different.

¡Ole Estrella! Así se canta....

¡Ole Pepe!

I first heard the second verse in a recording by La Niña de Los Peines. Estrella does it more than justice. She is such a great singer, like her father before her.
