About Spanish Is the Loving Tongue

"Spanish is the Loving Tongue" is a song based on the poem "A Border Affair" written by Charles Badger Clark in 1907. Clark was a cowboy poet who lived throughout the American West, and was named the Poet Laureate of South Dakota in 1937. The poem was set to music in 1925 by Billy Simon. Over the years, the song was recorded by many top recording artists, including Bob Dylan, Ian and Sylvia, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Marianne Faithfull, Emmylou Harris, Michael Martin Murphey and The Chad Mitchell Trio (under the name "Adios, mi Corazon"). Spanish is the lovin' tongue Soft as springtime, light as spray There was a girl I learned it from Living down Sonora way Now I don't look much like a lover Yet I say her love words over Late at night when I'm all alone "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

Broke her heart, lost my own
Adios mi corazón

Spanish is the loving tongue
Soft as music, light as spray
'twas a girl I learned it from
Living down sonora way
Well I don't look much like a lover
Still I say her loved words over
Mostly when I'm all alone
Mi amor, mi corazón

Haven't seen her since that night
I can't cross the line, you know
They want me for the gamblin' fight
Like as not it's better so
Still I've always kind of missed her
Since that last sad night I kissed her
Broke her heart, lost my own
Adios, mi corazón
Broke her heart, lost my own
Adios, mi corazón
Adios, mi corazón
