Ballad of Davy Crockett (Pancho López) – Bill Hayes / Hnos. Reyes con Teresita / Trini Lopez

Pancho López, chiquito pero matón, eso dice la versión en español de "La balada de Davy Crockett", sólo que le cambiaron el nombre para hacerlo más familiar a nosotros.
Hasta donde mi memoria tiene alcance tengo presente tanto la versión en inglés de Bill Hayes como las versiones en español con Los Hermanos Reyes con Teresita y la versión de Trini Lopez.
Me inclino más por la versión de Trini Lopez.

La letra es bastante graciosa y me gusta mucho, siempre que la escucho se me viene a la memoria la canción "Pecos Bill".


Ballad of Davy Crockett
Bill Hayes
(George Bruns and Tom Blackburn )

1955
.
Davy, Davy Crocket
The king of the wild frontier

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
The greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree
And kilt him a bear when he was only three

Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier

He fought single-handed through the Injun War
Till the Creeks was whipped and peace was in store
And while he was handling this risky chore
He made hisself a legend forever more

Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier

Oh, when he lost his love, his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
And lose hisself in the forests tall
But he answered instead his country's call

Davy, Davy Crocket
The choice of the whole frontier

He went off to Congress and served a spell
Fixing up the government and laws as well
Took over Washington, so we hear tell
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell

Davy, Davy Crocket
Serving his country well

When he come home, his politicking done
Why the big western march had just begun
He packed up his gear and his trusty gun
And lit out a grinning to follow the sun

Davy, Davy Crocket
Leading a pioneer

His land is biggest and his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crests
He's ahead of us all, a meeting the test
And following his legend right into the west

Davy, Davy Crocket
The king of the wild frontier
King of the wild frontier

Hnos Reyes Con Teresita - Pancho Lopez
