D Then come sit by my side if you love me, A do not hasten to bid me adieu. D D7 G Just remember that Red River Valley, A A7 D and the cowboy that loved you so true. D Well, they tell me, my dear, that you’re going, A I will miss your bright eyes and your smile, D D7 G for with you, you are taking the sunshine, A A7 D that has brightened my life for a while. D When you go to your home by the ocean, A may you never forget those sweet hourss, D D7 G that we spent in that Red River Valley, A A7 D and the love we exchanged 'neath the flowers. D I have waited a long time, my darling, A for those words that you never would say. D D7 G And at last, oh, my poor heart is breaking, A A7 D for they tell me you're going away.
