" The Yellow Rose Of Texas Sheet Music Print PVG Piano, Accordion
Originally conceived as a folksong in early Colonial Texas history, the first recorded copy of the "Yellow Rose of Texas" was handwritten on a piece of plain paper around 1836.

The folksong's lyrics tell of an Afrikan-American soldier who left his sweetheart (a "yellow rose") and yearns to return to her side. "Yellow" was a term given to Americans of mixed race in those days - most commonly mulattos. "Rose" was a popular feminine nineteenth century name, frequently used in songs and poems as a symbolic glorification of young womanhood. Below you can find our sheet music for The Yellow Rose of Texas.

There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

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.

(The Yellow Rose of Texas)
