The Red River Rose Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Ken Alford, Danny Steagall, Red Steagall
C On a fence line north of Estelline the strangest sight I'd ever seen F C Was a note tied with a ribbon to a rollin' tumbleweed
Brazos tossed his head and shied the weed got caught upon the wire F G7 C I stepped down from my saddle horse and gave that note a read
G7 F C Lines that were written in a fair woman's hand G7 F G7 Told of her life and the loss of her man Am Em F C It's her heart and her hopes she has cast in the wind F Em F G7 C And it's me that old tumbleweed chose to find Red River Rose
By the time I built a fire that night I'd memorized every line F C Felt the silent teardrops that had fallen on that note
I heard a lonesome coyote cry and it was then I realized F G7 C Rose and this old cowboy had been too long alone
On the north side of the prairie dog in a dugout built of cedar logs F C Stood a woman in a cotton dress the color of the sod
She said the man she loved had died and so to keep her occupied F G7 C He tied notes to the tumbleweeds and trusted them to God
A# C In a cedar cabin 'neath a canyon wall A# C G7 We light a fire and watch the snowflakes fall C F Em F G7 Am I'm glad it's me that old tumbleweed chose to find Red River Rose G7 C I love my Red River Rose
