There is a tradition of a cappella choral singing in New England and the rural South , which dates back to the beginning of the 19th century, and continues to this day. This is an instance  of the early American ideals of innovating to make an activity possible for everyone, and independent of European tradition.

In this arrangement, I have tried to maintain the feeling of stark simplicity, which the original vocal version has.

An arrangement for guitar of this song.

Lyric:

Al alba venid, buen amigo,
al alba venid.

Amigo el que yo más quería,
venid al alba del día.

Amigo el que yo más amaba,
venid a la luz del alba.

Venid a la luz del día,
non trayáis compañía.

Venid a la luz del alba,
non traigáis gran compañía.
