​Red River Valley

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Great Old Songs (1968).

From this valley they say you are leavin'
Oh, I'll miss your blue eyes and sweet smile
And I know you'll be takin' the sunshine
That has lightened my path for a while

Come and sit by my side till you're leavin'
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
And remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy that loved you so true

When you think of the loved ones that you're leavin'
And the words that I never could say
Just remember that I also love you
Although you may have learned it too late

So come sit by my side little darlin'
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Just remember the Red River Valley
And this cowboy that loved you so true
