about

Ven Guajira Ven
The song is inspired by the Cuban ‘guajira’ – a woman from the countryside. The ‘guajiro’ (man) is in love with his woman and dedicates the song to her, expressing his feelings of love.
Guajira is also the name given to the music of the Cuban countryside, this tune has a kind of Son feel as well, so it could be described as a Guajira - Son. A "bohio" is shack or hut in the countryside.

lyrics

Hoy canto esta melodía - Today singing this melody
Se inspira mi corazón - My heart is inspired
Es para ti mi guajira - It's for you my guajira
Que yo escribo esta canción - I write this song
Que yo escribo esta canción - I write this song
 
Eres linda, eres hermosa - You're beautiful, you're beautiful
Se te puede comparar - You can be compared to
Con el sol y las palmeras guajira - the Sun and palm trees, guajira
Mi amor te voy a entregar - I will give you my love
Mi amor te voy a entregar - I will give you my love
Coro
Ven guajira ven, a mi bohío - Come guajira come - to my bohio
Ven guajira ven - Come guajira come
