Ray Price - San Antonio Rose Lyrics


Deep within my heart lies a melody

A song of old San Antone

Where in dreams I lived 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 that only she would know

Still hears my broken song of love


Moon and all your splendor knows only my heart

Call back my Rose Rose of San Antone

Lips so sweet and tender like petals fallin' apart

Speak once again of my love my own

Oh broken song empty words I know

Still live in my heart all alone

For that moonlit pass beside the Alamo

And calls my Rose of San Antone


Moon and all your splendor...
