Red River Valley
Dick Curless

From this valley they say you are going
I shall miss your sweet face and your smile
Just because you are weary and tired
You are changing your range for awhile

I've been thinking a long time my darling
Of the sweet words you never would say
Now at last my fond hopes have all vanished
For they say that you're goin' away

Then come sit here awhile fore you leave us
Do not hasten to bid us adieu
Just remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loves you so true

I have promised you darlin' that never
Will the words from my lips cause you pain
And my life it will be yours forever
If you only would love me again

There never could be such a longing
In the heart of a poor cowboy's breast
As dwells in the heart you are breaking
As I wait in my home in the west

Then come sit here awhile...
