There'e a yellow rose in Texas that I am going to see.
No other fella knows her, no other only me.
She cried s when I left her, it almost broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we never more will part.
She's the sweetest rose of colour this fella ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosie Lee,
But the Yelo Rose Of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee.
Where the Rio Grand 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 go.
Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the song together, that we sung so long ago;
We'll play the banjo gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Ros of Texas shall be mine forevermore.
