    Lyrics »

His hand holds the letter
That says meet me in the garden
When the shadows of the moonlight
Fall on the mission wall
He reads her words over
His heart races faster
Across the borderline
To the Spanish rose

Now he rides 'cross the desert
On the back of a horse named Desire
Half crazy with passion and the urge of a gun for hire
And nothin' can keep him from the only good thing he
The Spanish rose, the Spanish rose

She waits by the window
And listens for the jingle
Of the spurs of silver
Worn by her love
Though her father forbade her
Nolo contesta
Only one rules the heart
Of the Spanish rose


Tonight when the moonlight
Hits the walls of the mission
It'll happen all over
For the ten thousandth time
She'll wait by the window
He'll ride 'cross the border
Forever and ever
Cause their love won't die
