Spanish Is a Loving Tongue

Spanish is a lovin' tongue
Soft as music, light as spray
There was a girl that I learned it from
Livin' down Sonora way

I don't look much like a lover
But I say her love words over
Mostly when I'm all alone
"Mi amor, me corazon"

Well on the nights that I would ride
She would listen for my spurs
Throw the big door open wide
Raise those laughin' eyes of hers

How those hours get to flyin'
All too soon I'd hear her sighin'
In her little sorry tone
"Mi amor, me corazon"

Well I ain't seen her since that night
I can't cross the line you know
They want me for a gamblin' fight
Like as not it's better so

Still I've always sort of missed her
Since that last sad night I kissed her
I lost my heart and left her own
"Adios me corazon"
