Spanish is the loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spray
'T was a girl it 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 coraz—n.

Moonlight on the patio
Oh se–ora now too ill
Me and Juana talkin' low
So the madre couldn't hear.

Oh how these hours would go a-flyin'
All too soon i hear her sighin'
In her sweet an' sorry tone
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

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

Still i've always kind of missed her
Since that last sad day i kissed her
Broke her heart, lost my own
Ad“os mi coraz—n.  up

'T was a girl i learned it from

  New Morning recording session 3, Columbia Studios, NYC - 2.jun.1970  
 
Spanish is the loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spray
'Twas a girl i learned it from
Living down Sonora way.

I don't look much like a lover
Still i hear her love words over
Mostly when i'm all alone
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

On the night that i would ride
She would listen for my spurs
Throw that big door open wide
Raise those laughing eyes of hers.

Oh how the night would go a-flyin'
All too soon i'd hear her sighin'
In her sweet an' quiet tone
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

Haven'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 always kind of missed her
Since that last sad night i kissed her
Left her heart, i broke my own
Adi—s mi coraz—n.  up

  Friend of Chile concert, Felt Forum - 9.may.1974  

Spanish is the loving tongue,
Soft as music, light as spring.
It was a girl i learned it from,
Living down Sonora way.

I don't look much like a lover,
Still I hear her love words over.
Mostly when I'm all alone,
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

On the nights that I would ride,
She would listen to my spurs.
Throw that big door open wide.
Raise those laughing eyes of hers.

Oh I couldn't stop my heart from beating,
All too soon I'd hear her cheating
In her soft and quiet tone,
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.  up

Spanish is the loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spray
'Twas a girl i learned it from
Living down Sonora way.

I don't look much like a lover
Still i hear her love words over
Mostly when i'm all alone
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

On the night that i would ride
She would listen for my spurs
Throw that big door open wide
Raise those laughing eyes of hers.

Oh how the night would go a-flyin'
All too soon i'd hear her sighin'
In her sweet an' quiet tone
Mi amor, mi coraz—n.

But i have to fly one time
Oh for a stupid gamblin' fight
[....mumble....]
On that dark unlucky night

Still i always kind of missed her
Since that last sad night i kissed her
Left her heart, i broke my own
Adi—s mi coraz—n.  up
