"Adios Mi Corazon" lyrics - THE CHAD MITCHELL TRIO

"Adios Mi Corazon"

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,
Yet I say her love-words over
Often when I'm all alone:
Mi amor, mi corazon!

Moonlight on the patio,
Old senora nodding near,
Me and Juana talking low
So her madre could not hear.

How those hours would go a-flyin',
And all too soon I'd hear her sighin'
In her little sorry tone,
Mi amor, mi corazon!

Never seen her since that night;
I can't cross the line, you know.
I'm wanted for a gamblin' fight-
Like as not, it's better so.

Yet I've always kind of missed her,
And that last sad night I kissed her.
I left her heart and lost my own...
Adios, mi corazon!
