Roy Rogers – The Yellow Rose Of Texas lyrics
There's a yellow rose of Texas
I'm goin' there to see
No other feller knows her
Nobody, only me.
She cried so when I left her
It like to broke my heart
And if we ever meet again
We never more will part

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds
They sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your dearest May
And sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
Beats the belles of Tennessee.

Where the Rio Grande is flowin'
And the stars are shinin' bright
We walked along the river
On a bright summer night
She said, if you remember
We parted long ago,
You promised to come back again
And never let me go

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds
They sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your dearest May
And sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
Beats the belles of Tennessee.

I'm goin' back to find her,
My heart is full of woe,
We'll sing the songs together
We sang so long ago,
I'll fix the banjo gayly
And sing of long ago,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas,
Is to be mine forevermore.

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds
They sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your dearest May
And sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
Beats the belles of Tennessee
