Johnny Lee – The Yellow Rose Of Texas
            G
There's a yellow rose of Texas I'm goin' for to see,
                             D7
No other soldier knows her, nobody only me.
     G
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
     D7                       G       D7       G
And if I ever find her, we never-more will part.

VERSE:
           G
There's a yellow rose of Texas I'm goin' for to see,
                             D7
No other soldier knows her, nobody only me.
     G
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
     D7                       G       D7         G
And if I ever find her, we never-more will part.

CHORUS:
            G
She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew.
                                        D7
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
         G
You may talk about your winsome maids and sing of Rosalie,
         D7                                 G         D7   G
But the yellow rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee

VERSE:
           G
Where the Rio Grande is flowing and starry skies are bright,
                                  D7
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night.
     G
She thinks if I remember we parted long ago;
   D7                                G       D7    G
I promised to come back again and never let her go.

VERSE:
      G
Oh, now I'm goin' to find her, my heart is full of woe;
                                  D7
We'll sing the song together we sang so long ago.
       G
We'll play the banjo gaily and sing the songs of yore,
         D7                              G         D7   G
And the yellow rose of Texas will be mine for-ever-more.

CHORUS:
            G
She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knew.
                                        D7
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
         G
You may talk about your winsome maids and sing of Rosalie,
         D7                                 G         D7   G
But the yellow rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee.
