Yellow Rose Of Texas   (MacGregor 2417)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*There's a yellow Rose in Texas that I'm gonna see
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
She cried so when I left her, it like a-broke my heart
And if I ever find her,
four ladies chain
Well chain the lady over, you turn and chain 'em back
Turn a little girl around and then you promenade that track
**You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalie
But the yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Where the Rio Grand is flowing and starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
I know she remembered when we parted long ago
I promised to return,
four ladies chain you know

*Oh I know I'm gonna find her for my heart is full of woe
We'll do things together we did so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily, she'll lover me like before
And the yellow Rose of Texas,
four ladies chain


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples pass thru, separate and you go round one
Make a line of four, go up to the middle and back you run
Pass thru and now the ends cross fold
Dosado the corner, then do an eight chain four
She's the cutest little Rose bud that Texas ever knew
Swing the corner lady, promenade go two by two
*You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalie
But the yellow Rose of Texas beats the Bells of Tennessee**


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Promenade your lady, she's the toast of the Calvary

**(Substitute for the last 8 beats of 2nd & 4th figure)

When you get back home sides face grand square
