Hi- (and thanx)

Bob Wills called this the NEW San Antonio Rose--Anybody know if there was an old one?

Dick, it looks like my response is about two years late, but yes, there was a San Antonio Rose before the New San Antonio Rose. Wills originally wrote it as an instrumental. When it became widely popular, he added the words and called it the NEW San Antonio Rose. Hardly anyone makes the distinction anymore.

SAN ANTONIO ROSE (parody)
(Homer & Jethro)

Deep within my heart, there's a sss-melody
Of Rose of old San Antone,
And it caused a stir when they deported her,
For she forgot the Alamo.

Oh, her hair reminds me of the deep blue sea:
Not wild, not wavy, it just makes me sick.
It was plain so see that her anatomy
Was beaten with an ugly stick.

She was pickin' cotton in old Mexico
And pluckin' chickens to make some dough.
Headed for the border, ridin' on a hoss,
Then that cotton-pickin' chicken plucker came across.

Out behind the hockshop, there we met and kissed.
I tried to get her alone.
Then I took her out in the moonlight and mist [or "missed"?]
My Rose, my Rose of San Antone.

Now old Rose is gone, and I've lost my love
And for her kisses I yearn.
Now I know she's with the angels up above
'Cause she was just too tough to burn.

San Antonio Rose, filename[ SANANTON - our text twice mentions a "moonlit pass" - that's a "moonlit path" - the Alamo is on flatland, no passes nearby - verified with Bob Wills recording.
