Leyendas Miticas: The Yellow Rose of Texas

Esta es una marcha popular de los Confederados durante la guerra Civil.
De acuerdo a la leyenda dicen que "la rosa amarilla de Texas" era de verdad una atractiva mujer, Emily Morgan West, hija de esclavos que fue capturada por el General Santa Ana durante la revolucion Texana de 1836.
Santa Ana sucumbio a sus encantos...pero ella tenia otros planes.
Mientras duro el romance ella logro sacarle a Santa Ana los planos de batalla, y se los entrego a Sam Houston, que ayudo a Houston a vencerlo en la batalla de San Jacinto.Tal vez Texas seria siendo de Mexico, sino hubiera sido por la importante ayuda de Emily..."La Rosa Amarilla de Texas".

Informacion: Pepe Crow

There's a yellow rose in Texas
That I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her,
Just half as much as me.

She cried so when I left her,
It like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her
We never more will part.

She's the sweetest rose of color That Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds,
They sparkle like the dew.
You can talk about your Clementine And sing of Rosa Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas
Is the only gal for me.
When the Rio Grande is flowing,
And the starry skies are bright
She walks along the river
In the quiet summer night
She thinks if I remember,
When we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again
And not to leave her so.

Oh, now I'm going to find her,
For my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the songs together,
That we sung long ago;
We'll play the banjo gaily,
And we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas
Will be mine forevermore.

Anna being brought before a wounded Sam Houston, to surrender.
