MY FILIPINO ROSE (Hank Snow) Recorded by: Hank Snow; Ernest Tubb. The postman dropped a letter at my door The address wasn’t plain but I could see It had traveled far across the great Pacific From My Filipino Rose across the sea CHORUS But I’m still praying that the trade wind sends you sailing across the blue In my harbor of dreams you’ll anchor, where your lonely Filipino waits for you The writing from her trembling hands was blurred The paper it was sadly stained with tears It read, they tell me you have wed another After I have longed and waited all these years CHORUS But I’m still praying that the trade wind sends you sailing across the blue In my harbor of dreams you’ll anchor, where your lonely Filipino waits for you I promised her that I’d return someday I told her she had won my heart and hand I told her a line ‘cause I was lonely Far from home a stranger in a foreign land CHORUS But I’m still praying that the trade wind sends you sailing across the blue In my harbor of dreams you’ll anchor, where your lonely Filipino waits for you She wrote, I’ve watched the driftwood float on by I’ve watched the sea roll on its weary way I have watched the silver sails out on the ocean Hoping you might return to me someday CHORUS But I’m still praying that the trade wind sends you sailing across the blues In my harbor of dreams you’ll anchor, where your lonely Filipino waits for you The chains of my love may never set you free But thru’ the years as memories fonder grow This broken heart will always wait for you, dear It was signed your lonely Filipino Rose CHORUS But I’m still praying that the trade wind sends you sailing across the blue In my harbor of dreams you’ll anchor, where you Filipino waits for you (Contributed by lylemalone - January 2005)
