Rosa Rio

Jim Reeves

My heart is in Rosa Rio 
Under the Argentine skies
There with a beautiful lady 
With her dark and sparkling eyes
My heart is in Rosa Rio 
Your sentimentae aye-aye
There with a beautiful lady 
That I'll love the day that I die

Her parents were rich Estenaciaros 
And I was just one of the hands
Who hearded their ten thousand cattle
On their ten thousand acres of land
But I was a very poor cowboy 
And we lived in worlds far apart
So how could I tell her I loved her 
Or speak of the love in my heart

The lady I loved never loved me 
The lady I loved never knew
The day that she married another 
A poor cowboy's heart broke in two
And I know that she'll never miss me 
Or notice that I'm even gone
The cowboy who saddled her pony 
Now rides through the dark night alone

My heart is in Rosa Rio 
Under the Argentine skies
There with a beautiful lady 
With her dark and sparkling eyes
My heart is in Rosa Rio 
Your sentimentae aye-aye
There with a beautiful lady 
That I'll love the day that I die
