Marty Robbins – Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair lyrics

One starry night
In a little town in Old Mexico
I found my love
Down by the sea, where soft trade winds blow
She came in the night
With perfume that sweetened the air
And I lost my heart
To the girl with gardenias in her hair

I glanced her way
She smiled and my heart started to sing
She came into my arms
And the night became a sweet, magic thing
When I held her close
I knew I'd follow her anywhere
And I lost my heart
To the girl with gardenias in her hair

We shared thru the night
Our love until the first light of dawn
Then one last kiss
And like a whisper on the wind, she was gone

I go each night
To the places where she once spoke my name
Some call me fool
They say I'm chasing only a dream
But I know, one day
I'll turn and suddenly, she'll be there
And I'll spend my life
With the girl with gardenias in her hair
