Yellow rose of texas1 Misc. Cowboy
There's a yellow rose of Texas I'm goin' for to see,
No other soldier knows her, [D7]nobody only me.
She [G]cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And [D7]if I ever find her, we [G]never-[D7]more will pa[G]rt.
Where the Rio Grande is flowing and starry skies are bright,
She walks along the river in the [D7]quiet summer night.
She [G]thinks if I remember we parted long ago;
I [D7]promised to come back again and [G]never [D7]let her [G]go.
Oh, now I'm goin' to find her, my heart is full of woe;
We'll sing the song together we s[D7]ang so long ago.
We'll [G]play the banjo gaily and sing the songs of yore,
And the [D7]yellow rose of Texas will be m[G]ine for-[D7]ever-m[G]ore.
She's the s[G]weetest rose of color this soldier ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they s[D7]parkle like the dew.
You may [G]talk about your winsome maids and sing of Rosalie,
But the [D7]yellow rose of Texas beats the be[G]lles of [D7]Tennes[G]see.
