She took me in the garden just for a little walk, I didn't know much Spanish and we had no time to talk, And she told me that she loved me not with words but with a kiss, But I found myself thinkin' of that train I could not miss.

Well, it's been a year or so, and I wanna’ go back again, And if I get the money, then I'll ride that same old train, I know That chances come but once and though I sure missed mine, I can’t help wondering when I hear that whistle crying.
