Yellow Rose Of Texas

Ernest Tubb & The Texas Troubadors

There's a yellow rose in Texas that I'm gonna see

Nobody else could miss her not half as much as me

She cried so when I left her it'd like to broke my heart

And if I'd ever find her we never more will part

She's the sweetest little resebud that Texas ever knew

Her eyes are bright as diamonds they sparkle like the dew

Gimme talk about you Clementine and sing of Resalee

But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

[ guitar ]

Where the Rio Grande is flowing and the skies are bright

She walks along the river in the quiet summer night

I know that she remembers when we parted long ago

I promised that I'll return and not to leave her so

She's the sweetest little resebud...

[ fiddle ]

Now I'm going back to find her for my heart is full of vow

We'll do the things together we did so long ago

We'll play the banjo gaily she'll love me like before

And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine for ever more

She's the sweetest little resebud...
