This song was re-issued on Arhoolies “Tejano Roots” series CD376. This corrido is about a contrabandista named Francisco Martinez. Martinez tells about a shoot out he and his comrades had with some “Rinches” on their way to Minas de Dolores. One of the contrabandistas died while four rangers ended up getting killed.
