I was born in Northern Mexico a little more than half a century ago, and my grandmother (born in 1899) sang this song to me when I was little and her grandmother also sang it to her. At that time the city was a barely known village, its inhabitants were mostly of Spanish and Italian origin, in addition to the natives.

My question is: Is it really a Chilean? Could it be Spanish? I was surprised to know that this tune is known in another country."
