Verse 1:
-------

          G                       '
From this valley they say you are goin'
       G                                D7
I will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
         G                      C
For they say you are takin' the sunshine
       [ G               D7   ]     G
That has brightened our pathway the while


Chorus:
------

         G                      '
Come and sit by my side if you love me
       G                D7
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
      G                    C
But remember the Red River Valley
       [ G              D7  ]        G
And the cowboy that has loved you so true


Verse 2:
-------

Do you think of the valley you're leavin'
Oh how lonely and dreary it will be
Do you think of the fond heart you're breakin'
And the sadness you've cast over me

Chorus:
------

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy that has loved you so true

Verse 3:
-------

For a long time my dear, I've been waiting
For the words that you never would say
And alas my poor heart you are breakin'
For they tell me you're goin' away

Chorus:
------

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy that has loved you so true

Verse 4:
-------

As you go to your home by the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River Valley
And the love we exchanged mid the flowers

Chorus:
------

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy that has loved you so true
