Yellow Rose of Texas

Yellow Rose of Texas

Share This
There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am going to see
No other soldier knows her, no soldier, only me
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart
And if I ever find her, we never more will part

Chorus
She's the sweetest rose of color, this soldier ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your dearest May, and sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

Where the Rio Grande is flowin' and the starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
She thinks, if I remember, when we parted long ago
I promised to come back again and not leave her so

Chorus

Oh, now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe
And we'll sing the song together, that we sang so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore
And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine forever more

Chorus
