Galveston Rose Written and recorded by Hank Snow
C F C Down in old southern Texas I wandered one day D7 G7 Where the tropical sea breezes blow C F C I there fell in love with a flower so rare G7 C And they called her the Galveston rose
F C Her heart was as true as her blue smiling eyes D7 G7 And as pure as the lily that grows C F C And the finest of gold in no way could compare G7 C With the curls of my Galveston rose
G7 C I grew jealous and falsely accused her one day D7 G7 Said her love I no longer should know C F C I’ve been true please believe me her little heart cried G7 C But I left her my Galveston rose
F C Little then did I think that sometimes I’d repay D7 G7 And would reap every sorrow and care C F C But as years passed along I grew lonely each day G7 C For the one I had left waiting there
G7 C So I wrote to my darling and said I was wrong D7 G7 I’ll return dear if you’ll only wed C F C But soon came a letter my flower had died G7 C And these are the words that I read
F C Your sweetheart is peacefully sleeping tonight D7 G7 In a grave where the white violets grow C F C And enclosed there’s a curl a last token of love G7 C And a note from your Galveston Rose
G7 C I was innocent dear though you left me alone D7 G7 But remember I loved only you C F C And the lock that’s enclosed is a curl from your rose G7 C Who’ll be waiting in heaven for you
