LA GOLONDRINA. Mexican, USA/Southwest. Waltz. D major. Standard tuning (fiddle). "La Golondrina" (English: "The Swallow") is a song written in 1862 by Mexican physician Narciso_Serradell_Sevilla"(1843-1910), who at the time was exiled to France due to the French intervention in Mexico. The Spanish lyrics use the image of a swallow to evoke sentiments of longing for the homeland. It became the signature song of the exiled Mexicans. Versions of the song have been recorded by many artists including Chet Atkins and Nat King Cole.
