Roy Rogers

Roy Rogers, born Leonard Franklin Slye (November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998), was an American singer and cowboy actor, one of the most heavily marketed and merchandised stars of his era, as well as being the namesake of the Roy Rogers Restaurants franchised chain. He and his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino, Trigger, and his German Shepherd dog, Bullet, were featured in more than 100 movies and The Roy Rogers Show. The show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often either Pat Brady (who drove a Jeep called "Nellybelle"), Andy Devine, or the crotchety George "Gabby" Hayes. Rogers's nickname was "King of the Cowboys". Evans's nickname was Queen of the West. more »

There's a yellow rose of Texas
I'm goin' there to see
No other feller knows her
Nobody, only me.
She cried so when I left her
It like to broke my heart
And if we ever meet again
We never more will part

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy 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 flowin'
And the stars are shinin' bright
We walked along the river
On a bright summer night
She said, if you remember
We parted long ago,
You promised to come back again
And never let me go

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy 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.

I'm goin' back to find her,
My heart is full of woe,
We'll sing the songs together
We sang so long ago,
I'll fix the banjo gayly
And sing of long ago,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas,
Is to be mine forevermore.

She's the sweetest rose of color
A cowboy 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
