The English Translation is more or less as follows

Artist: Lyrics
Song: Paloma Negra Lyrics

> Ya me canso de llorar y no amanece

I'm tired of crying for nothing

Ya no sé si maldecirte o por ti
> rezar

I don't know if I should curse you or pray for you

Tengo miedo de buscarte y de encontrarte

I'm afraid to look for you and to find you

Donde me aseguran
> mis amigos que te vas

Where my friends asure me that you go

Hay momentos en que quisiera mejor rajarme

There are moments when I would prefer to split

> arrancarme ya los clavos de mi penar

and finally pull out the nails of my torment

Pero mis ojos se mueren si mirar
> tus ojos

but my eyes die without the sight of your eyes

Y mi cariño con la aurora te vuelve a esperar
and my glowing love continues to await you

> Y[a] aggaraste por tu cuenta la parranda

You have taken for yourself the party (goodtimes)

Paloma negra paloma negra dónde,
> dónde andarás?

Black dove, Black dove, where, where do you go?

Ya no jueges con mi honra parrandera

Don't play with my honor

Si tus
> caricias han de ser mías, de nadie mas
if your caresses must be mine, and no one elses

> Y aunque te amo con locura ya no vuelves

and although I love you like crazy don't return

Paloma negra eres la reja de
> un penar

Black dove you are the bars of a punishment(jail????)

Quiero ser libre vivir mi vida con quien yo quiera

I want to be free to live my life with whom I want

> dame fuerza que me estoy muriendo por irla a buscar
God give me strength, I'm dying from searching for (him/her {in this translation her})
> Y agarraste por tu cuenta las parrandas
and you have taken for yourself the parties (goodtimes)

Does anyone have the cord change? I know it's basically a I, IV, V in D Maj. but there seems to be more to it.
