Yo piso el nuevo camino,
Yo sigo un Maestro de Luz;
Yo piso el nuevo camino,
Y cargo contento mi cruz.

​El nuevo camino es largo,
Y cuando regreso no sé;
Pero no es lo largo que cuenta,
Sino con quién que lo compartiré.

David Carreño & Vetza Trussell read a scene from "Pedro Infante y La Suegra Triunfante." at the Malabar Library in East L.A. sponsored by the Mark Taper outreach program.​
