Yellow Rose Of Texas Lyrics

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 rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
Gimme talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalie
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Where the Rio Grandee 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 rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
Gimme talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalie
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

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 rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
Gimme talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalie
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me
