THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS LYRICS AND CHORDS 4/4 Banjo / Mandolin tab included / tuning GDAE (U.S. Confederate  Song)
The chords below have been kept simple in the key of G major. The YouTube video version is more advanced  and uses changing keys within the  various verses starting to with G# major in the 1st verse to A major in the 2nd and finally A# major in the last verse. To do so change the chords correspondingly, for example by moving a capo from the 1st to 2nd and 3rd fret.

Intro: G-G-G-G   D-G-(G-D)-G   G

There's a (G)yellow rose in Texas, that I am gonna see,
No(D)body else could miss her, not half as much as me.
She (G)cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And (D)if I ever (G)find her, we never(D)more will (G)part.

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

Repeat Intro (option: change key to one semi-tone-higher)

When the (G)Rio Grande is flowing, the starry skies are bright,
She (D)walks along the river in the quiet summer night:
I (G)know that she remembers, when we parted long ago,
I (D)promise to re(G)turn, and (D)not to leave her (G)so.

Chorus
Repeat Intro (option: change key to one semi-tone-higher)

Oh (G)now I'm gonna find her, for my heart is full of woe,
We will (D)do the things together, that we did so long ago
We'll (G)play the banjo gaily, she'll love me like before,
And the (D)yellow rose of (G)Texas shall be (D)mine for(G)evermore.

Chorus
Repeat Intro  fading (without another change of key)
