Yellow rose in Texas

There’s a Ayellow rose in Texas, that I am gonna see.
Nobody else could E7miss her, Not half as much as me.
She Acried so when I left her, t’was like it broke her heart.
And E7if I ever Afind her, we E7never more will Apart.
She’s the Asweetest little rose bud, that Texas ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as E7diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may Atalk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the E7yellow rose of ATexas, Is the E7only girl for Ame.

 

1. There’s a yellow rose in Texas, that I am gonna see.
Nobody else could miss her, Not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her, t’was like it broke her heart.
And if I ever find her, we never more will part.
She’s the sweetest little rose bud, that Texas ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the yellow rose of Texas, Is the only girl for me.

2. Where the Rio Grande is flowing, 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 to leave her so.
She’s the sweetest little rose bud, that Texas ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the yellow rose of Texas, Is the only girl for me.

3. Oh, now I’m goin’ to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we’ll sing the song together, that we sang so long ago.
We play the banjo gaily, and we’ll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas, shall be mine for evermore.
She’s the sweetest little rose bud, that Texas ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the yellow rose of Texas, Is the only girl for me.
