Adios, little girl, I must go Wait for me by the old Alamo I met her by the river of the roses The sweetest girl this side of the Alamo I left her by the river of the roses With tear-dimmed eyes she whispered, "I'll miss you so" All the roses have faded Since we've been apart But the one rose she gave me Will always bloom within my heart And someday by the river of the roses I don't know when, but we'll meet again I know She's waiting by the river of the roses The sweetest girl this side of the Alamo Adios, little gal, adios Till we meet by the old Alamo (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2017)
