I am a gaucho, and take this from me as my tongue explains it to you: for me the earth is a small place and could be bigger yet --the snake does not bite me nor the sun burn my brow. I was born as a fish is born at the bottom of the sea; no one can take from me what I was given by God --what I brought into the world I shall take from the world with me. It is my glory to live as free as a bird in the sky: I make no nest on this ground where there's so much to be suffered, and no one follows me when I take to flight again.
To city people gaucho was often a synonym for barbarism, but with time the less violent aspects of gauchos prevailed in popular imagination, and by extension, gaucho comes to be a description of anything strong and simple, well-done or well-made. A gauchada in modern Argentine slang means the action of a friend, doing a favor.
