This is a country classic that's become a stnadard.
Every country guitarist should get to know Bob Wills.
New San Antonio Rose by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys
G C A7
Deep within my heart, lies a melo-dy
a song of old San Antone.
Where in dreams I live with a memo-ry
beneath the stars all alone.
It was there I found, beside the Alamo
enchantment strange as the blue up above
G7 C A7
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 fallin' apart
Speak once again of my love, my own
G C A7
A broken song, empty words I know
That live in my heart all alone
For that moonlit path beside the Alamo
And Rose, my Rose of San Antone.
