Yellow Rose of Texas


(American folk song)

There’s a yellow rose in Texas, that I am gonna see,
Nobody got to know her, nobody, only me
She cried so when I left her it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

2. She’s the sweetest little flower I ever, ever knew.
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about your Daisy May and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the girl I’m gonna see.
