RED RIVER ROSE
Red Steagall


[Verse 1]
           C 
On a fence line north of Estelline, strangest sight I ever seen
            F                              C
Was a note tied with a ribbon to a rollin’ tumbleweed
   C
Brazos tossed his head and shied, the weed got caught up on the wire 
      F                                 G                C
I stepped down from my saddle horse and gave that note a read


[Chorus]
 G                           F            C
Lines that were written in a fair woman’s hand
 G                       F           G
Told of her life and the loss of her man
          Am           G             F            C
It’s her heart and her hopes she has cast in the wind
         F           C          F
And it’s me that old tumbleweed chose
    G             C
To find Red River Rose


[Verse 2]
        C
By the time I’d built a fire that night I’d memorized every line
     F                                                 C
And felt the silent tear drops that had fallen on that note
      C
And I heard a lonesome coyote cry and it was then I realized
  F                          G             C
Rose and this ol’ cowboy had been too long alone


[Chorus]
G                            F            C
Lines that were written in a fair woman’s hand
 G                       F           G
Told of her life and the loss of her man
         Am            G             F           C
It’s her heart and her hopes she has cast in the wind
         F           C          F
And it’s me that old tumbleweed chose
    G             C
To find Red River Rose


[Verse 3]
       C
On the north side of the prairie dog in a dug-out faced with cedar logs
      F                                        C
Was a woman in a cotton dress the color of the sun
     C       
She said the man she loved had died so to keep her occupied
    F                                 G               C
She tied notes to the tumbleweeds and trusted them to God


[Chorus]
G                            F            C
Lines that were written in a fair woman’s hand
G                        F           G
Told of her life and the loss of her man
         Am            G             F           C
It’s her heart and her hopes she has cast in the wind
         F           C          F
And it’s me that old tumbleweed chose
   G              C
To find Red River Rose


[Final Chorus]
     Gm          F                 C
In a cedar cabin ‘neath the canyon wall
     Gm              F                     G       C    G   F
We’d light a fire and watch the snowflakes fall
 C            F           C          F
I’m glad it’s me that old tumbleweed chose
   G              C     F         G         C
To find Red River Rose, I love my Red River Rose
