Song : 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.

She's the sweetest rose of color,
            this soldier ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds,
            they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your dearest May,
            and sing of Rosa Lee.
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
            beats the belles of Tennessee.

Where 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 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 forever more.


Oh, now I'm headed southward,
            for my heart is full of woe.
I'm going back to Georgia
            to find my Uncle Joe.
You may talk about your Beauregard
            and sing of Bobby Lee,
But the gallant Hood of Texas,
            he played hell in Tennessee!
