Texas Bucket List – Y: Yellow Rose ~ Blogging Through The Alphabet


Y is a hard letter for Texas. I found a couple of places but they were strange or didn’t really seem to fit the sort of thing I was going for. So, I went for a good old Texas folk song.

I am just going to share a couple of recordings of the song with you. I’ll let you sort our the folk tale from the truth because honestly, I don’t think anyone can sort it out. So, I just teach and enjoy the song as folk music.

Here’s the Yellow Rose of Texas –

The one that made the song famous:


Who doesn’t enjoy an Elvis Presley version of a song?


And a Civil War version (from what I can determine). . .


At Home.
