The Yellow Rose Of Texas

Traditional

4:4 Key:C

There’s a [C]yellow rose in Texas that I am going to see
[G7]Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me.
She [C]cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And [G7] if I ever find her, we [C]never [G7] more will [C]part.

She’s the [C]sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her [G7] eyes are bright as diamonds; they sparkle in the dew;
You may [C]talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee,
But the [G7] Yellow Rose of Texas is the [C]only [G7] girl for [C]me.

When the [C] Rio Grande’s flowing, the starry skies are bright,
She [G7] walks along the river in the quiet of the night;
I [C]know that she remembers, when we parted long ago,
I [G7] promised to return again, and [C]not to [G7] leave her [C]so.

She’s the [C]sweetest li􀆩le rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her [G7] eyes are bright as diamonds; they sparkle in the dew;
You may [C]talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee,
But the [G7] Yellow Rose of Texas is the [C]only [G7] girl for [C]me.

Oh [C]now I’m going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we’ll [G7] sing the songs together, that we sung so long ago;
We’ll [C]play the ukuleles and we’ll sing the songs of yore,
And the [G7] Yellow Rose of Texas shall be [C]mine for [G7] ever [C]more.

She’s the [C]sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her [G7] eyes are bright as diamonds; they sparkle in the dew;
You may [C]talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosalee,
But the [G7] Yellow Rose of Texas is the [C]only [G7] girl for [C]me.
