Lyrics to "Compae Chipuco" song by "Carlos Vives"

Viajando para Fonseca
Yo me detuve en Valledupar (bis)
Y allá en la plaza me encontré
Con un viejito conversón
Y al pasar le pregunté
Oiga compae cómo se llama usted (bis).Me llaman compae Chipuco
Y vivo a orillas del río Cesar (bis)
Soy vallenato de verdad
Tengo las patas bien pintá
Con mi sombrero bien alón
Y pa'remate me gusta el ron (bis).Me llaman Compae Chipuco
Y vivo a orillas del Rio Cesar (bis)
Soy vallenato de verdad
No creo en cuento no creo en ná
Solamente en Pedro Castro
Alfonso Lopez y nada más
Soy Vallenato de verdad
No creo en cuento no creo en ná
Solamente en Pedro Castro
En Santo Ecce Homo y nada más.
Pedazo de acordeón
Este pedazo de acordeón
Ahí donde tengo el alma mía.(bis)Aquí tengo mi corazón
Y parte de mi alegría (bis).Ay por si acaso yo me muero
Les quiero pedí un favor.Ay por si acaso yo me muero
Les voy a pedí un favor.Ay me llevan al cementerio
Este pedazo de acordeón.(bis)

Before he graduated from Jorge Tadeo Lozano's University with a publicist degree, singer/songwriter Carlos Vives joined different bands and participated in several plays. In 1982, the artist got a role in the Colombian TV series Tiempo Sin Huella, starting his successful acting career, later extending his professional skills to the Puerto Rican television.

After participating in some teen programs as a singer/actor, he got the main role in the telenovela (soap opera) "Gallito Ramírez," which made him a famous actor. Later, another telenovela, "Escalona" made him return to his "costeño" roots (he was born in Santa Marta, the same town of the famous soccer player "El Pibe" Valderrama, located in the north coast of Colombia) and mainly to sing classic vallenato songs of one of the most prestigious vallenato composers, Rafael Escalona. The soundtrack of "Escalona" quickly became a major hit in radio and CD sales and allowed vallenato to conquest other colombian cities outside the "costa" (north coast) that hadn´t previously accepted it.

After forming a band called La Provincia, the singer and guitarist began performing a local style known as Vallenato, successfully touring his native country, Colombia, and South America. In 1994, Carlos Vives' "La Gota Fria," became his first smash, climbing on the most important music charts around Latin America. In 1996, under the slogan of Unete A Los Locales (Join the Local Ones), the talented musician created his own label, called Gaira, to promote and give an incentive to local artists like "Bloque de Búsqueda" and "Distrito".

Carlos Vives also hosted an important show of the Colombian TV, "La Tele". With irreverent and sometimes escatologic humour this program promoted the figures of Martin De Francisco and Germán Moure, in a country where criticism has always been divorced of popular jokes. This program was then reborn as an animated version which turned to be the first weekly 25 minute animated series of Colombia and Latinamerica, called "El Siguiente Programa" ("The Next Show")

His style, which mixes vallenato, rock and champeta (an African-influenced music) was then used by several Colombian artists, giving birth to the "Tropipop" movement. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
