Yellow Rose of Texas







The Yellow Rose of Texas

There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am going to see,
No other soldier knows her, no soldier only me;
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart
And if I ever find her, we never more will part.

Cho: She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew,
Her eyes are bright like diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your dearest May and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

When the Rio Grande is flowing, and the starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
She thinks if I remember, when we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again and not to leave her so

Oh, now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe
And we'll sing the song together, that we sang so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore.

Note: Tinsley, in He Was Singing This Song, states that the original Yellow Rose
was an indentured servant, the "high yellow" Emily Morgan, who kept Santa Ana
dallying in lascivious torment so long that his leaderless men lost the Battle
of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. The song was published only in the late
1850s by Firth, Pond and Co., and credited vaguely to "J.K.", according to
Spaeth. EC
