Yellow Rose Of Texas Lyrics - Johnny Horton

Review The Song (1)



There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see
No other soldier knows her, no soldier only 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

She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about dearest May and sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

Where the Rio Grande is flowin', and 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 so

She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about dearest May and sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

Oh my feet are torn and bloody, and my heart if full of woe,
I'm going back to Georgia, to find my Uncle Joe,
You may talk about your Beauregard, and sing of Bobbie Lee,
But the gallant Hood of Texas, he played hell in Tennessee.

She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about dearest May and sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

This song says a lot if you listen to the words carefully enough. Not only is it a song of pride and proudness and loyalty, it is a song that reaches far down to the soul and is full of love and respect not only for the girls of texas, but the state it's self.
