1. From this valley they say you are going
I shall miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
for they say you take with you the sunshine
G D G
that has brightened my pathway a while.
R: Come and sit by my side if you love me
do not hasten to bid me adieu
out remember the Red River Valley
G D G
and the cowboy who loved you so true.
2. It's a long time now I've been waiting
for those words that you never will say
and it's now that my fond heart is breaking
for they say you are going away.
3. When you go to your home o'er the ocean
may you never forget the sweet hours
that we spent in the Red River Valley
and the love we exchanged midst its bowers.
