Red River Valley      


          C   
From this valley they say you are going
        C                                                       G7
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
                C                                 F   
For they say you are taking the sunshine
               C                      G7            C   
That has brightened our path for a while

Refrain:
         C   
Come and sit by my side if you love me
             C                         G7
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
         C                                   F   
But remember the Red River Valley
               C                  G7                C   

And the cowboy who loved you so true
