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
