I used not to like this tango, because I thought he had cheated/abandoned his wife and when he returned she was happy to see him again anyways (so machist)... but then, after reading the lyrics, I found that he had been in prison, and for killing someone!

So, sometimes it's difficult to understand the meaning even if you are native spanish speaker just like me, and in the case of this lyric, I found that the writer did a good job on transmitting the shame of telling someone else you have been in prison, he didn't include it on the chorus, and when he mentions it he tries to excuse himself.
