San Antonio Rose

Words & Music:

Bob Wills


         C     C7           F   D7

Deep within my heart lies a melody,

  G7              G+ C

A song of old San Antone.

C                 C7          F   D7

Where in dreams I live with a memory,

  G7                   C

Beneath the stars all alone.


It was there I found beside the Alamo,

Enchantment strange as the blue up above.

A moonlit pass only she would know,

Still hears my broken song of love.



G           Gdim D7   G         D7   Bbm  D9

Moon in all your splendor, know only my-- heart.

D         Bbm  D9            G

Call back my-- Rose, Rose of San Antone.

        Gdim  G   D7 G        D                D9

Lips so sweet and tender like petals falling apart.

D          Bb D9         G        G7

Speak once a--gain of my love, my own.


Broken song, empty words I know,

Still live in my heart all alone,

For that moonlit pass by the Alamo,

And Rose, my Rose of San Antone.
