Ano de noventa y cuatro en la ciudad de Mazatlan por primera vez se canta la tragedia de Bernal.
Heraclio Bernal decfa cuando iba para Saucillos que en la bolsa trafa platas y en la cintura casquillos.
Translation
In the year of ninety-four, in the city of Mazatlan, this, the song of Bernal, is sung for the first time.
Heraclio Bernal, when he vis­ited Saucillos, was wont to declare that he carried silver in his pocket and cartridges at his waist.

Vuela, vuela, palomita, encaramate a aquel nopal: di que diez mil pesos ofrecen por la vida de Bernal.
Una familia en la sierra ^staba muy arruinadaj y les dio quinientos pesos para que se remediaran.
Fly, little dove, and perch upon yonder cactus 5 and proclaim that ttn thousand pesos are offered for the head of Bernal.
A family in the mountains was in dire poverty j and he gave them five hundred pesos to mend their fortunes-
