Subject: Lyr&Tune Req: 1940's The One Rose
From: katlaughing
Date: 07 Feb 02 - 12:14 PM

This one is for my dad. He wants to put this back in his repertoire, but can't remember all of the words. Tune would be a bonus for me. I think I may have found it on a "Grandpa Schubert(?)'s site, but it locked up my computer, so I don't want to go there, again.

Ida, at the site little john cameron just posted in Musical Memories, is checking her library for it, too.

Dad says he thinks it came out sometime before the WAR, i.e. WWII. Thanks for any help!

Kat, This is probably a stupid question, but are you by any chance thinking of Roses of Piccardy? It was a WWI song and the last line has the phrase "the one rose" in it. If not, I'm afraid I can't help, because I can't think of any other "one rose" songs from WWI or WWII.

Good luck.

Thanks, Genie. I went back to that site and, while it doesn't have lyrics, I think the tune is probably the right one. You can hear it by going to his page and scrolling down about halfway; it's in the righthand column as "The One Rose:" Grandpa "Frank" Schober's Midis

Thanks!

Hey Kat,

Johnny Cash did a nice version of this song on "Unchained". Here are the words: (if this is indeed the song you seek)

The One Rose

Also, scroll down this poge for some kind of audio file-I don't have sound on the computer..

The One Rose

Kat,

Find a copy of Mike Nesmith's (The Monkees) first album. Its a great album called Magnetic South and the song Joanne if you remember that one is on the disk along with The One Rose (Thats Left in Your Heart.) If you can't find it I'll send you a copy on tape.

Did your Dad finally get the last tape?

Yes, he did, Don, and was most grateful. I am sorry, I thought I had passed that on.

Ya know, he feels as though he knows some of you and also I know feels some link, as a sort of adjunct Mudcatter, through such kindnesses as yours and through my tales of you all. I am so grateful to you all for including him and being so kind and helpful, always, as I know he is thankful, too.

Thanks so much for the links, Bardford. Thanks to you, too, Louie, I think we've got it covered now. Also, thanks, Malcolm, but I think this is the One Rose that everyone else is talking about, not the Roses of Picardy, though I appreciate the link and info.

You all are just great!!

Jimmie Rodgers also recorded "The One Rose" as did Hank Snow. The Michael Nesmith version is sometimes available on the Morpheus site. It is a beautiful song. Good luck.

Ah, I'll bet Jimmie Rodgers did a beautiful job, too. Thanks, again, everyone. I've just recorded the link above and printed out the words, as well as called Dad to let him know about the Mudcat Quick Response, again!

Well, this one was bugging the heck out of me, because NONE of the versions mentioned is the one that is floating around in my head. I finally pegged it to hearing it on an old 78 as a kid at home, and the rest was easy ~~ GENE AUTRY. Can't remember if it was a purple label Okeh, or one of the red label Columbias. It is more than likely available on CD by him, I expect.

According to CDNow

Gene Autry, Ray Campi, Larry Clinton, Tony Ellis, Howard Fishman Quartet, Moms & Dads, Michael Nesmith, Jerry O'Sullivan, Jimmie Rodgers, Midge Williams, Milton Brown (this could be the one he remembers, too), Johnny Cash, Pee Wee King, Dorothy Lamour, George Morgan, Leon Redbone, Hank Snow, Red Clay Ramblers, Jerry Lee Lewis. I expect a couple might not be the right song, but most are.

Dale, NOT a Guest, but thinks we need a new category for people who don't bother to sign in. (Just kidding!)

True to her word, Ida at that incredible 78's site, the Beat Goes On, put this up for me, this week. She allows one request per week, per person. Anyway, to hear Bing Crosby's rendition, please click here and scroll down. It's about in the middle and says, under the title, "Kat's Dad."

THE ONE ROSE (THAT'S LEFT IN MY HEART)
Words and Music by Del Lyon and Lani McIntire.
Sheet music published by Shapiro, Bernstein & Co., ©1936.
As recorded by various artists (see list below).

You're as sweet as the red rose in June, dear.
I love you, adore you, I do.
Each night through Love Land we'd wander [or "we wandered"], sweetheart,
Telling love's stories anew.
Out of a blue sky a dark cloud came rolling,
Breaking my heart in two.
Don't leave me alone, for I love only you.
You're the one rose that's left in my heart.

Gene Autry in the film "Boots and Saddles" (1937).

Bing Crosby, 1937.

Larry Clinton & His Orchestra, with vocalist Bea Wain, 1937.

Lani McIntire's Hawaiians - this seems to be a "Soundie" from 1940.

[According to some library catalogs, this is only the chorus; the sheet music contains a verse that begins: "One rose lives in my heart, You alone Darling, tho' we're apart. You are still my own...." I was not able to find a recording with this verse included.]

This is my transcription from the recording found on Spotify. I have boldfaced the words that are different from the above version. Several discographies report that this was recorded in 1930, which is odd, because the sheet music wasn't published until 1936, according to several universities that have it.

THE ONE ROSE (THAT'S LEFT IN MY HEART)
As recorded by Jimmie Rodgers with Lani McIntire's Hawaiians, 1930. (Released 1937.)

So blue, so lonesome, too,
But still true.
Rosie, haunt me,
Make me think of you.

You're the one rose that's left in my heart,
dear.
I love you, adore you, I do.
Each night through Love Land we wander,
Telling love's story anew.
Then from the blue sky a black cloud came rolling,
Breaking my heart in two.
But we ought not to part; I've said from the start,
You're the one rose that's left in my heart.

[Yodel]

Johnny Cash's version sticks fairly closely to Jimmie Rodgers' version (above).

THE ONE ROSE (THAT'S LEFT IN MY HEART)
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "American II: Unchained" (1996), and "Unearthed" (2003).

So blue, lonesome, too,
But still true.
Rosie haunts me,
Makes me think of you.

You're the one rose that's left in my heart, dear.
I love you, adore you, I do.
Each night in Dreamland we wander alone,
Telling love's story anew.
When from a blue sky a black cloud came rolling,
Breaking my heart in two.
Oh, we ought not to part; I have said from the start,
You're the one rose that's left in my heart.
