"Spanish Is The Loving Tongue" lyrics - STRAWBS

"Spanish Is The Loving Tongue"

Spanish is a loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spring
It was a girl that I learned it from
Living 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, mi corazon.

On the nights that I would ride
She would listen for my spurs
Throw those big doors open wide
And raise them laughing eyes of hers.

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

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

And yet I'm always sort of missed her
Since that last sad night that I kissed her
Lost his heart and left her own
Mi amor, mi corazon.
