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
