Chad Mitchell Trio — Adios Mi Corazon lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Adios Mi Corazon" by Chad Mitchell Trio.


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!
