Nights when she knew where I 'd ride She would listen for my spurs, Fling the big door open wide, Raise them laughin' eyes of hers, And my heart would nigh stop beatin' When I heard her tender greetin', Whispered soft for me alone —H "Mi amor, mi corazon!"
Moonlight in the patio, Old Sefiora noddin' near, , Me and Juana talkin' low So the Madre could n't hear — How those hours would go a-flyin'! And too soon I 'd hear her sighin' In her little sorry tone — "Adios, mi corazon!"
But one time I had to fly For a foolish gamblin' fight,
