Bobby Horton - The Yellow Rose of Texas

영어

The Yellow Rose of Texas

There's a Yellow Rose in Texas
That I am gonna see
No other soldier knows her,
No soldier only 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 rose of colour
This soldier ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds,
They sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your dearest May
And sang 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.
 
She's the sweetest rose of colour
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.
 
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 of Beauregard,
And sang of Bobby Lee,
But the Gallant Hood of Texas,
He played hell in Tennessee.
