My Filipino Rose
written and recorded by Hank Snow

C                     G7           C
The postman dropped a letter in my door
    F                                C
The address wasn't plain but I could see
       F                               C
It had traveled far across the great Pacific
                 G7              C
From My Filipino Rose across the sea
                     G7                 C
The writing from her trembling hand was blurred
    F                               C
The paper it was badly stained with tears
   F                               C
It read they tell me you have wed another
                        G7               C
After I have longed and waited all these years
But I'm still praying that the trade winds
         G7                 C
Send you sailing across the blue
In my harbor  I've dreamed you'll anchor
           G7                        C
Where your lonely Filipino waits for you
                        G7          C
I promised her that I'd return some day
  F                               C
I told her she'd won my heart and hand
  F                          C
I told her a lie cause I was lonely
                            G7           C
Far from home a stranger in that foreign land
                           G7                 C
She wrote I've watched the driftwood float on by
     F                                 C
I've watched the sea roll on its weary way
     F                                   C
I've watched the silver sails out on the ocean
                 G7           C
Hoping you might return to me someday
                       G7            C
The chains of love may never set you free
    F                                    C
But through the years as memories fondly grow
     F                                  C
This broken heart will always wait for you dear
                          G7       C
It was signed your lonely Filipino Rose
repeat #3
