The Yellow Rose of Texas:

There's a yellow rose in Texas,
that I am going to see,
No other soldier knows her,
no soldier only me
She cryed so when I left her
it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her,
we nevermore 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 your Dearest May,
and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
beats the belles of Tennessee.

Where the Rio Grande is flowing,
and the 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.


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