Spanish Is The Lovin' Tongue
Traditional Cowboy Song
Recorded by Michael Martin Murphey

Spanish Is The Lovin' Tongue

Bb Eb
Spanish is the lovin' tongue
Bb F7
Soft as springtime, light as spray
Bb Eb
There was a girl I learned it from
Bb F7 Bb
Living down Sonora way
Bb Bb7 Eb Bb
Now I don't look much like a lover
Yet I say her love words over
Bb Eb
Late at night when I'm all alone
Bb F7 Bb
"Mi amor, mi corazon"

There were nights when I would ride
She would listen for my spurs
Fling that big door open wide
Raise those laughing eyes of hers
And how those hours would get to flyin'
Pretty soon, I'd hear her cryin'
"Please don't leave me all alone
Mi amor, mi corazon"

Then one night I had to fly
I got into a foolish gamblin' fight
I had a swift goodbye
In that black unlucky night
And traveling north, her words kept ringing
And every word I could hear her singing
"Please don't leave me all alone
Mi amor, mi corazon"

Well, I ain't never seen her since that night
I can't cross the line now
She was Mexican, and I was White
Like as not, it's better so
And yet I've always sort of missed her
Since that last wild night I kissed her
I left my heart, but I lost my own
"Mi amor, mi corazon"
