      About "Boots Of Spanish Leather"

      Lyrics for Nanci Griffith - "Boots Of Spanish Leather"

      Oh, I'm sailing away, my own true love
      I'm sailing away in the morning
      Is there something I can send you from across the sea?
      From the place where I'll be landing?

      There's nothing you can send me, my own true love
      There's nothing I'm wishing to be owning
      Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
      From across that lonesome ocean

      Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine
      Maybe 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
      That's all I wish to be owning

      Oh, I might be gone a long ol' time
      And it's only that I'm asking
      Is there something I can send you to remember me by?
      To make your time more easy passing?

      How can, how can you ask me again?
      Well it only brings me sorrow
      Oh, the same thing I would want today
      I would want again tomorrow

      Oh, I got a letter on a lonesome day
      It was from his ship a-sailing
      Saying, I don't know when I'll be coming back again
      It depends on how I'm feeling

      If you, my love, must think that away
      I'm sure your mind is a-roaming
      I'm sure your thoughts are not with me
      But with the country where you're going

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