Cue Sheet

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

Yellow Rose Of Texas
 
 

There's a yellow rose of Texas
That I am going to see
No other fellow knows her
No other, 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

(Chorus)
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
Is the only girl for me

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 never leave her so

(Chorus)
Oh now I'm going to find her
For my heart is full of woe
And we'll sing the song together
That we sang so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily
And we'll sing the song of yore
And the Yellow Rose of Texas
Shall be mine forevermore

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

Recorded by Mitch Miller (1955).
