Hank Snow — Senorita Rosalita lyrics

Rosalita, my Rosalita
Are you waiting for me just as you promised me you would
Rosalita, senorita Rosalita
I'd climb back tonight to you like a seagull if I could.

The ship that I was stationed on
Docked on the shores of Spain
The night I met Rosalita
I knew my heart could never be the same.

Before the night was over
She promised she would wait for me
We danced until the break of dawn
I held her close and kissed her tenderly.

Rosalita, my Rosalita
Are you waiting for me just as you promised me you would
Rosalita, senorita Rosalita
I'd climb back tonight to you like a seagull if I could.

--- Instrumental ---

And then too soon the time had come
For us to say goodbye
I left her on the shores of Spain
She waved until my ship went out of sight.

The sweet caresses that we shared
Within my lonely heart still burn
Longing for the time to come when
I can say my love I have returned.

Rosalita, my Rosalita
Are you waiting for me just as you promised me you would
Rosalita, senorita Rosalita
I'd climb back tonight to you like a seagull if I could...
