Keywords: "La Paloma" became quickly popular in Mexico. It was a favorite of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, and at the same time the Mexican revolutionaries played and popularized it well. In the 1939 film Juarez, Emperor Maximilian (portrayed by Brian Aherne) requests that it be played during his execution.
New lyrics (not translations) are available in many languages. They typically involve generic images of white doves and true loves. They lack the specificity of the original Spanish, in which a Cuban sailor laments parting from his "Guachinanga chinita" (his adorable Mexican sweetheart), and asks her to cherish his spirit when it returns to her.
This is the real thing but it a new style.
