Hank Snow - Lyrics


I've Been Everywhere - Album




My Filipino Rose


 
The postman dropped a letter in my door

The address wasn't plain, but I could see

It had traveled far across the great Pacific

From My Filipino Rose across the sea.



The writing from her tremblin' hand was blurred

The paper, it was badly stained with tears

It read, "They tell me you have wed another

After I have longed and waited all these years."



Chorus:

"But I'm still prayin', that the tradewinds

Send you sailin' across the blue

In my harbor, I've dreamed you'll anchor

Where your lonely Filipino waits for you."



I promised her that I'd return some day

I told her she'd won my heart and hand

I told her a lie, 'cause I was lonely

Far from home, a stranger in that foreign land.



She wrote, "I've watched the driftwood float on by

I've watched the sea roll on its weary way

I've watched the silver sails out on the ocean

Hopin' you might return to me someday."



"The chains of love may never set you free

But thru the years, as mem'ries fonder grow

This broken heart will always wait for you, dear."

It was signed, "Your lonely Filipino Rose."



Chorus
