Spanish Is The Loving Tongue

Spanish is the loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spring
T’was a girl I learned it from
Living down Sonora way
Well, I don’t look much like a lover
Still I say her love words over
Mostly when I’m all alone
“Mi amor, mi corazon”.

On the nights that I would ride,
She would listen for my spurs.
Throw those big doors open wide,
Raise them laughing eyes of hers.
How those hours would get to flyin’,
All too soon I’d hear her sighing,
In her little sorry tone:
“Mi amor mi corazon.”

Haven’t seen her, haven’t seen her since that night
I can’t cross the line no more
They want me for a gamblin’ fight
Like as not it’s better so
Still I always kind of missed her
Since that last sad night I kissed her
Broke her heart, lost my own
Adios, mi corazon
Broke her heart, lost my own
Adios, mi corazon
Adios, mi corazon
Adios, mi corazon.
