Faron Young – The Yellow Bandana lyrics

(Steve Karliski - Larry Kolber - Al Gordoni)
This is the story of the Yellow Bandana
A handsome young soldier and the girl named Rosana.
Oh, way down west in the winds on New Mexico
There lived a girl and the soldier who loved her so
And every night neath the full crimson moon above
This brave young soldier would pledge her his love.
And he gave Rosana his yellow bandana
To wear in her hair till he's with her once more
He gave Rosana his yellow bandana
Mounted his pony and rode off to war.
His orders came and he had to ride west again
Seems that Apaches were causing unrest again
He kissed Rosana goodbye as he rode away
Promising this time he'd come back to stay.
And he gave Rosana his yellow bandana
To wear in her hair till he's with her once more
He gave Rosana his yellow bandana
Mounted his pony and rode off to war.
That war was over and he came back home and found
That the Apaches had burned the whole village down
And neath the tree where he'd last kissed Rosana
Gripped on the cross was his yellow bandana.
And he gave Rosana his yellow bandana
To wear in her hair till he's with her once more
He gave Rosana his yellow bandana
Mounted his pony and rode off to war.
He gave Rosana his yellow bandana
To wear in her hair till he's with her once more
He gave Rosana his yellow bandana
Mounted his pony and rode off to war....
