Emmylou Harris - Spanish Is A Loving Tongue lyrics

(C.B. Clark - M. Williams - B. Simon)

Spanish is a loving tongue
Soft as music light as spray
Was a girl he learned it from
Living down Sonora way?

He don't look much like a lover
But he says her love words over
Mostly when he's all alone
Mi amor mi corazon.

On the nights that he would ride
She would listen for his spurs
Throw those big doors open wide
Raise them laughing eyes of hers.

How those hours would get to flying
All too soon he'd hear her sighing
In her little sorry tone
Mi amor mi corazon.

--- Instrumental ---

He ain't seen her since that night
He can't cross the line you know
They want him for a gambling fight
Like as not it's better so.

Yet he's always sort of missed her
Since that last sad night he kissed her
Lost his heart, left her own
Adios mi corazon.

Lost his heart, left her own
Adios mi corazon...
