San Antonio Rose

San Antonio Rose
(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 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.

Deep with- [C]in my [C7]heart lies a [F]melo-[D7]dy,
A [G7]song of old San [G+]An-[C]tone.
Where in dreams I [C7]live with a [F]memo-[D7]ry,
Be-[G7]neath the stars all a-[C]lone.

[G]Moon in all [Gdim]your [D7]splen-[G]dor, know [D7]only [Bbm]my [D9]heart.
[D]Call back [Bbm]my [D9]Rose, Rose of [G]San Antone.
Lips so [Gdim]sweet [G]and [D7]ten-[G]der, Like [D]petals falling apart.[D9]
[D]Speak once [BbM]ag-[D9]ain of my [G]love, my [G7]own.
