A shirt of red
Or a shirt of blue
Tanned dimpled cheeks
Your heart beating oh so true.
Your hair black as midnight
With eyes effervescence blue
Twinkle in the firelight
Make me tremble, askew.
A single red rose and a promise too
Of a gunfighter’s legend brave and so bold
A secret love, known by only a few
Now revealed to young and old.
With you by my side
We know that everything is true
Sweet harmony acts as our guide
And for this I will forever love you.
