This version is shorter with 5 stanzas

There’s a yellow rose in Texas,
I’m going there to see.
No other soldier knows her,
Nobody, 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 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.
I know that she remembers
When we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again
And ne’er to leave her so.

Now I’m going back to find her,
For my heart is full of woe.
We’ll sing the song together
We sang so long ago;
I’ll play the banjo gaily,
We’ll sing the songs of yore;
And the Yellow Rose of Texas
Will be mine forevermore!

And now I’m going southward,
For my heart is full of woe.
I’m going back to Georgia,
To see my Uncle Joe.
You may talk about your Beauregard
And sing of Bobby Lee,
But the Gallant Hood of Texas
He raised Hell in Tennessee.

Alternate Lyrics: Chorus: The Yellow Rose of Texas Is sweepin' cross the land It's heard on every jukebox And played by every band So come along and join us It's where you ought to be Out here on the dance floor With friends and family Slide along and turn around Can't you feel the beat The magic's in the music The rhythm's in your feet When we dance together We're havin' so much fun So let's just keep on movin' Until the music's done Repeat Chorus It only takes the two of us To lead the rest along Come and join the party Started by this song The line goes on forever Don't have to wait your turn The Yellow Rose of Texas Is the dance you've gotta learn Repeat Chorus Out here on the dance floor With friends and family Out here on the dance floor With friends and family

Yellow Roses are the only flowers I give my loved ones on special occasions. I very partial to yellow, blondes, sparkling eyes; that, this is one of my most favorite songs of all times. I want beauty in my life so bad I cry everytime I hear this song sung. I here it on Country Legends 194.9 BR, LA
