Red River Valley

G     D7     G

From this valley they say you are leaving


We shall miss your bright eyes and sweet smile

G     G7     C

For you take with you all of the sunshine

D7     G

That has brighten our pathway a while

Come and sit by my side if you love me

Do not hasten to bid me adieu

Just remember the Red River Valley

And the cowboy that loved you so true

For a long time my darling I’ve waited

For the sweet words you never would say

Now at last all my fond hopes have vanished

For they say that you’re going away


Do you think of the valley you’re leaving

O how lonely and how dreary it will be

And do you think of the kind hearts you’re breaking

And the pain you are causing to me


They will bury me where you have wandered

Near the hills where the daffodils grow

When you’re gone from the Red River Valley

For I can’t live without you I know
