Thread Name: Origins: Spanish Is the Loving Tongue
Any of you heard the female version of this song? Here is what I can remember and before you post it, it is different than what is here already.

Spanish is the loving tongue,
Soft as laughter light as spray.
Knew a boy who once taught me some.
Said he came down Sonora way.

He didn’t look much like a lover.
Still he’d say these love words over:
“Tu eres mi luna. Tu eres mi sol,
Mi amor, mi corazon.”

His eyes were shy. His smile was bold,
My young vaquero 20 years old.
But every night the stories were told:
Towns of silver, streets paved with gold

I had dreams of far off places,
Dresses made of silk and laces.
I heard him say as the stage started on:
“Aidos, mi amor, mi corazon.”

I’ve dealt cards in so many places....

I’ve forgotten the ending !!
