The Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair
Marty Robbins 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 through 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

The gardenias are blooming outside my house and I'm always reminded of this song > it's been one of my favorite Marty songs all my life...

nape jack

One of his most beautiful song!


Excellent, your description of Marty's talent is certainly right on, I class him and Jim Reeves as dual # 1's as to voice and style, I have to put Faron Young next With a few others very close together. Marty wrote such heartfelt songs.


Music taste is subjective, to each, his or her own. I feel bad for you though if you think Jim Reeves is boring....


Marty and Ray Price.  Jim Reeves a little boring for me.
