Deep within my heart lies a melody, a song of old San Antone,
Where in dreams I lived with a memory, beneath the stars all alone,
It was there I found, beside the Alamo, enchantment strange as the blue up above,
A moonlit path that only she would know, still hears my broken song of love,
Moon in all your splendor know only my heart, call back my Rose, Rose of San Antone,
Lips so sweet and tender, like petals falling apart, speak once again of my love my own
Oh broken song empty words I know, still live in my heart all alone
For that moonlit path by the Alamo, and Rose my Rose of San Antone

Merle Haggard is one of the very few that sings the correct lyrics to San Antonio Rose!

Most of them put their words on the internet writing about a "moonlit PASS" by the Alamo.

The Alamo is about 200 yards from the San Antonio River and there is not a PASS any where around. As Merle knows, Tommy Duncan never sang PASS.
