Tales From the Homestead

Belinda Bonita is the 11th track on Tallsome Tales.

T'was at my best friend's wedding dance I first laid eyes on her

I walked right up asked her to dance such was her allure

We moved across the floor with a ballroom dancer's grace

I knew that she would be mine when I felt our first embrace

Belinda Bonita o come dance with me tonight

Belinda Bonita o until the morning light

There is no one else who can take your place

You're my only heart's desire

Belinda Bonita o come dance with me tonight

We pledged our love eternal exchanged our wedding rings

We felt like we were floating high as if we both had wings

We glided down the aisle o'r the threshold we did pass

Our new life lay before us I love my darling lass

I came home after work one day not all that long ago

Belinda's bags and clothes were gone I looked both high and low

Not a farewell message could be found have I gone completely mad

Or was Belinda just a dream of a love I never had

Was Belinda just a dream of a love I never had

Belinda Bonita o come stay with me tonight

Bonita Belinda o until the morning light

There is no one else who can take your place

You're my only heart's desire

Belinda Bonita o come stay with me tonight

O come dance with me tonight

O come stay with me tonight
