My Filipino Rose-crd

Hank Snow

 CG7C
  The postman dropped a  letter in my  door
 FC
The  address wasn't plain, but I could  see
 FC
It had  traveled far across the great Pa- cif-ic
 G7C
>From My Filipino  Rose across the  sea.

 CG7C
  The writing from her  tremblin' hand was  blurred
 FC
The  paper, it was badly stained with  tears
 FC
It  read, "They tell me you have wed a- nother
 G7C
After I have longed and  waited all these  years."

CHORUS
 CF
  "But I'm still prayin', that the  tradewinds
 G7C
Send you  sailin' across the  blue
 F
In my harbor, I've dreamed you'll  anchor
 G7C
Where your  lonely Filipino waits for  you."

I promised her that I'd return some day
I told her she'd won my heart and hand
I told her a lie, 'cause I was lonely
Far from home, a stranger in that foreign land.

She wrote, "I've watched the driftwood float on by
I've watched the sea roll on its weary way
I've watched the silver sails out on the ocean
Hopin' you might return to me someday."

"The chains of love may never set you free
But thru the years, as mem'ries fonder grow
This broken heart will always wait for you, dear."
It was signed, "Your lonely Filipino Rose."
