There's a yellow rose in Texas, I'm goin' there to see.
No other fellow 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 shall part.
She's the sweetest little resebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds; They sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about you Clementine and sing of Rosalee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

Where the Rio Grande is flowing and the 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 that I'll return and not to leave her so.
She's the sweetest little resebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds; They sparkle like the dew.
You may talk about you Clementine and sing of Rosalee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.
