  • De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llego a Cueto, voy para Mayarí

    De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llego a Cueto, voy para Mayarí

    De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llego a Cueto, voy para Mayarí

    El cariño que te tengo
    No te lo puedo negar
    Se me sale la babita
    Yo no lo puedo evitar

    Cuando Juanica y Chan Chan
    En el mar cernían arena
    Como sacudía el jibe
    A Chan Chan le daba pena

    Limpia el camino de pajas
    Que yo me quiero sentar
    En aquél tronco que veo
    Y así no puedo llegar

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para Mayarí

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para Mayarí

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para Mayarí

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para Mayarí

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para Mayarí

    De alto Cedro voy para Marcané
    Llegó a Cueto voy para MayaríWriter/s: MAXIMO FRANCISCO REPILADO MUNOZ

  • Jorge from Bronx, NyGreat compilations of Great from that era,This album is so great every song is a gem,In fact got to see the movie on PBS stations while doing the public support,lol,Ry Cooder is whom made this possible,in which he was a great bluesman in his heyday.
  • Patequi from Pasadena, CaThe four towns mentioned in ChanChan are located on the Sierra Nipe corridor in the northern sector of the former Oriente province, now Holguín. Mayarí is on the Bay of Nipe-the largest of the 4 townships in sugar cane country. From there the route begins towards the southern side of the province to the province capital of Santiago de Cuba, going through Cueto, Marcané and Alto Cedro.

    Compay is from Siboney-a suburb of Santiago in the southern region of Oriente but used to travel to the morthern side because his auntie was a resident of Marcané, from there he would go to the beaches of Mayarí Bay, hence having sex on the beach metaphors.
  • Keely from Bronx, NyThe lyrics are a metaphor for having sex on the beach.
