There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna 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

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 Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

 Where the *Rio* Grande is flowin', and 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 her so


Oh, now I'm gonna find her, for my heart is full of woe
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
