A Single Yellow Rose

A Single Yellow Rose

By Chuck RitenouR

If the day should come and you must close your eyes

and your spirit should run free on the Earth and in the sky

every day from then, with a single yellow rose

I'll walk down in the valley where the Shenandoah flows.

I promise, I will pray as that rose drifts out of sight

that we shall meet again, another time, another life.

Another time, another life through all eternity

my heart will seek you out and bring you back to me.

Forever in this valley where the Shenandoah flows

I pledge my love to you with a single yellow rose.
