Caminito (“little walkway” or “little path” in Spanish) is a street museum and a traditional alley, located in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The place acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music for the famous tango “Caminito” (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto.

Caminito Lyrics in Spanish
by Gabino Coria Penaloza
Caminito Lyrics in English
Caminito que el tiempo ha borrado,
que juntos un día nos viste pasar,
he venido por última vez
he venido a contarte mi mal.Caminito que entonces estabas
bordado de trébol y juncos en flor,
una sombra ya pronto serás
una sombra lo mismo que yo.Desde que se fué triste vivo yo,
caminito amigo yo tambien me voy.
Desde que se fué nunca más volvió,
seguiré sus pasos, caminito, adiós.Caminito que todas las tardes
feliz recorría cantando mi amor,
No le digas si vuelve a pasar
Que mi llanto tu huella regó.Caminito cubierto de cardos,
la mano del tiempo tu huella borró.
Yo a tu lado quisiera caer
y que el tiempo nos mate a los dos.
Little path that time has erased,
That one day saw us pass by together,
I have come for the last time,
I have come to tell you my woes.Little path, you were then,
embroidered in clover and flowering reeds,
a shadow you will soon be,
a shadow the same as myself.Since she left I live in sadness,
little road my friend, I’m leaving also.
Since she left she never returned,
I’ll follow her steps, little path, goodbye.Little path which every afternoon
I happily travelled singing of my love
don’t tell her if she passes through again
that my tears watered your tracks.Little path covered with thistle,
the hand of time erased your tracks.
I would like to fall beside you
and let time kill us both.
