Thread Name: Lyr Add: La Llorona
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: La Llorona
As I understand this song, it is known throughout Mexico and that the weeping woman is a kind of symbol. It chronicles a legendary love affair that ends in tragedy. I understand that there is a connection with La Llorona as an old woman (crone) who is part of the symbolism. Am I far off here? Anyone with the information can enlighten me?
