VILAJUÏGA

En un redós de muntanyes
d'un racó de l'Empordà,
com nascut de ses entranyes
hi ha un poble que mira al pla.
Vilajuïga encisera
que amb tendresa i resplendor,
a l'hivern i primavera,
a l'estiu i a la tardor,
és la donzella galana
que enamora el sol i el vent;
la besa la tramuntana
i el ventijol de ponent.
Per tot arreu es respira
alegria i aire sa,
i la gent, sense cap mira,
a tothom dóna la mà.
S'hi recull bona mistela,
bon ranci i bon moscatell,
perquè la vinya s'arrela
i sempre n'hi ha de novell.
És la sang d'aquesta terra
el vi blanc, negre i rosat
que en els ceps del pla i la serra
el sol ha purificat.
