Rose Of El Paso
Recorded by Mel Tillis
Written by Sam Weedman

G
Dear Clementine the weather’s fine
D7
I thought I’d drop a line to my sweet rose

To see how things are in El Paso

We must have laid ten miles of pipe today
G
And I’m so doggone tired and feeling blue

C
The radio it don’t play no Texas music for us cowboys
G
I miss the Rio Grande I miss the promise land
D7 G
I miss my Rose of El Paso


Well you’re a child of the clear blue sky I love your Spanish eyes
D7
I miss my sweet little Rose of El Paso

You’re the dessert flower who’s got the power
G
To draw this wondering cowboy right into your heart


You can weave a spell
C
Like the star that fell on the heart of Texas
G
South of Rio Grande queen of the promise land
D7 G
I miss my Rose of El Paso

C
Cowboy lay you down to sleep
F C
The eyes of Texas are upon you
F
When the work is done hurry home
C G
Your El Paso Rose is waiting for you


You’re Clementine and you’re still mine

Remember my heart yearns to hold you
D7
Yearns to join you join you in El Paso

Well the work goes on we must have gone through half the rocks
G
And stubborn stone in Montana


It’s turning cold I guess you know
C
That western wind can cut right though you
G
I miss the Rio Grande I miss the promise land
D7 G
I miss my Rose of El Paso

C
Cowboy lay you down to sleep
F C
The eyes of Texas are upon you
F
When the work is done hurry home
C G
Your El Paso Rose is waiting for you

C
Cowboy lay you down to sleep
F C
The eyes of Texas are upon you
F
When the work is done hurry home
C G
Your El Paso Rose is waiting for you
