This vintage performance of Bob Wills rocking out to"San Antonio Rose" is sure to give you chills - prepare!
In 1938 Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys released the song that Bob had written himself called "San Antonio Rose". The original version of the song was only instrumental, but the band members eventually added lyrics and renamed the song "New San Antonio Rose".
The song became the signature song of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, and the Western Writers of America have listed the song as one of the Top 100 Western Songs of All Time. What an honor!
This live sing-a-long performance is sure to blow you away, as Bob and his Texas Playboys sing the classic tune while a slideshow of lyrics cross the screen. If you remember this song like we do, you may not even need the lyrics to sing along, but either way y'all are bound to love it!
Check out this awesome vintage performance and prepare to be amazed!
Deep within my heart, lies a melody
a song of old San Antone.
Where in dreams I live with a memory
beneath the stars all alone.
It was there I found, beside the Alamo
enchantment strange as the blue up above
a moonlit pass that only she would know.
Still hears my broken song of love
Moon in all your splendor
Know only my heart
Call back my rose, Rose of San Antone
Lips so sweet and tender
Like petals fallin' apart
Speak once again of my love, my own
Broken song, empty words I know
That live in my heart all alone
For that moonlit path beside the Alamo
And Rose, my Rose of San Antone.
