Red River Valley


From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright
eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our path for a while

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Just remember the Red
And the cowboy who loved you so true

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be?
Wonít you think of the kind heart you're breaking
And the grief you are causing to me

They will bury me where you wandered
Near the hills where the daffodils grow

When your gone from the red river valley

For I canít live without you I know
