In the lyrics of the song

De Esta Sierra A La Otra Sierra  what so they mean when they say the verse

cuando Sali De Mi Casa
de Nadie Me Despedi
solo De Unos Tinamaistes
y Un Gato Que Estaba Ahi.

 

The word I'm asking is Tinamaistes

 

I looked at the spanish dic. and there is not such word, could YOU PEASE assit me as to what the word means, is it a phase or what is he saying. I understand all the others except this one

thanks

Thanks for the Spanish vocabulary challenge! A google search for tinamaistes led to this link having to do with New Mexico which describes tinamaistes  as "large iron rings with three legs" to hold kettles over an outdoor fire.  The closest definition in Spanish that I could find is tenamaste (Del nahua tenamaxtli), a word from Central America and Mexico for each of three stones around a fire on which the olla (earthen pot) is placed for cooking.  I hope that helps.

Parrandero: Thanks for the meanings, Yes they are both right due to they mean almost the same thing. Like Tex-Mex here in Texas the words get change so I'm sure in New Mexico is the same. Thanks for the Help, I know now what is meant in the song when this word is used

Glad to help, hmfletch.  Especially when I can learn some new vocabulary in the process.

Here's another song with "tinamaistes" in it.  It's called "El Indio Manuel" by New Mexican musician Juan de la O, a performer from the 1930s-40s, according to the book "La Música de los Viejitos" found at the link. In fact, the verse containing the word is nearly exactly the same as the corresponding verse in the K-Paz De La Sierra song.  Only instead of "cuando salí de mi casa" it says ""cuando salí de mi tierra."  Surely no coincidence.  Perhaps a tribute by the author of the K-Paz song?

Shows that when an artist needs a verse he can rob or use a verse into his own song and maybe get away with it. 30 and 40's was before the one I ask you about with K-Paz. Wonder if they even asked to use it for the reason it came from Juan de la O. Now with these two songs I have a even better conversation piece
Thanks Parrandero, great research on your part.
