1: 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. CHORUS 2: 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. CHORUS 3: 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 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.
