Boots Of Spanish Leather
Oh, I'm sailin' away, my own true love
I'm sailin' away in the morning
Is there something I can send you from across the sea
From the place that I'll be landing?

No, there's nothin' you can send me, my own true love
There's nothin' I'm wishin' to be ownin'
Just a-carry yourself back to me unspoiled
From across that lonesome ocean

Ah, but I just thought you might want something fine
Made of silver or of golden
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona

If I had the stars of the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss
For that's all I'm wishin' to be ownin'

That I might be gone a long long time
And it's only that I'm askin'
Is there something I can send you to remember me by
To make your time more easy passin'?

Oh, how can, how can you ask me again?
You know it only brings me sorrow
The same thing that I would want today
I will want again tomorrow

I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin'
She said "I don't know when I'll be comin' back again
It depends on how I'm a-feelin'"

Well if you, my love, must think that way
I'm sure your mind is roamin'
I'm sure that your thoughts they are not with me
But with the country to where you're goin'

So take heed, take heed of the western wind
Take heed of the stormy weather
And yeah, there's something you can send back to me
Spanish boots of Spanish leather
