Red River Valley

by James Kerrigen in 1896

Same chord progression as many other songs, but with a different rhythmic feel. Play it sad or sappy or sprightly; however you feel like playing it.

To make the chord chart shorter, each mark stands for two beats.

| I / IV / | I / V / |

| I / IV / | V / I / |

  1. From this valley they say you are going
    We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
    For they say you are taking the sunshine
    That has brightened our path for a while
  2. 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 who loved you so true
  3. Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
    Oh how lonely, how sad it will be?
    Oh think of the fond heart you're breaking
    And the grief you are causing to me
  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
