There's a yellow rose in Texas
That I am going to see
Nobody else could miss her
Not half as much as 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

[Chorus:]
She's the sweetest little
Rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds
They sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your
Clementine and sing of Rosalie
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
Is the only girl for me

Oh, the Rio Grande is flowing
And the starry 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 to return
And not to leave this home

[Chorus:]

Know I know I'm gonna find her
For my heart is all alone
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 forevermore

[Chorus:]
