Ernest Tubb – The Yellow Rose Of Texas lyrics

There's a yellow rose in Texas that I'm gonna see
Nobody else could miss her not half as much as me
She cried so when I left her it'd like to broke my heart
And if I'd ever find her we never more will part
She's the sweetest little resebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds they sparkle like the dew
Gimme talk about you Clementine and sing of Resalee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me
[ guitar ]
Where the Rio Grande is flowing and the skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
I promised that I'll return and not to leave her so
She's the sweetest little resebud...
[ fiddle ]
Now I'm going back to find her for my heart is full of vow
We'll do the things together we did so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily she'll love me like before
And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine for ever more
She's the sweetest little resebud...
