The Yellow Rose Of Texas

	  INTRO:PLAY VERSE INSTRUMENTALLY 
 
           G 
There's a yellow rose of Texas I'm goin' for to see, 
                            D7       
No other soldier knows her, nobody only me. 
    G 
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart, 
    D7                     G     D7          G 
And if I ever find her, we never-more will part.

There's a yellow rose of Texas I'm goin' for to see,

No other soldier knows her, nobody only me.

And if I ever find her, we never-more will part. 
tabchorus
G She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew. D7 Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew. G You may talk about your winsome maids and sing of Rosalie, D7 G D7 G But the yellow rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

VERSE G Where the Rio Grande is flowing and starry skies are bright, D7 She walks along the river in the quiet summer night. G She thinks if I remember we parted long ago; D7 G D7 G I promised to come back again and never let her go. VERSE G Oh, now I'm goin' to find her, my heart is full of woe; D7 We'll sing the song together we sang so long ago. G We'll play the banjo gaily and sing the songs of yore, D7 G D7 G And the yellow rose of Texas will be mine for-ever-more. CHORUS G She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew. D7 Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew. G You may talk about your winsome maids and sing of Rosalie, D7 G D7 G But the yellow rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee. NOTE; The Yellow Rose of Texas is not a flower, but a person. History records her as being aservant named Emily D. West, who was indentured to a man named Colonel James Morgan, who fought in the war for the independence of Texas from Mexico.To date,no credit can be given to the writer of this song,written in the early 1800's
