Red River Valley 

A classic song from the American West, conjuring up images of lonesome cowboys on the prairies and love lost.

3    4    5  5   4    3   4   3   1 3
From this valley they say you are going.

0  3    5    3    5      8    6   5     4
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile,

8   6    5   5   4   3  4   5   8  6
For they say you are taking the sunshine

1    1   0    3     5   4   5   4 3
That has brightened our pathway a while.
