San Antonio Rose

By Bob Wills 

Deep within my heart lies a melody,
A song of old San Antone,
Where in dreams I live with a memory,
Beneath the stars all alone. 

It was there I found beside the Alamo,
Enchantment strange as the blue up above.
A moonlit pass that only she would know,
Still hears my broken song of love. 

Moon in all your splendor, know only my heart
Call back my Rose, Rose of San Antone.
Lips so sweet and tender, like petals falling apart
Speak once again 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.
