(More alternate lyrics to “The Yellow Rose of Texas”)

Once just like many ladies,

I thought it only fair….

I find my knight of wonder

In shining red hair…

Oedipus had not on me,

My mother had me square…

Just find one not as controlling

And I could walk on air!

The way my love happened

Her hair was not red,

But she wanted a savior

Just as I had said…

It took a load of learning

To “fine-ly”  realize

We both had to make it work

In Holy Spirit-wise.

In years it’s been a number,

We learn most every day

Submitting to each other

In new practical ways…

As Spirit-led servants

To each other we belong.

Someday we’ll raise together

To Him a Heavenly song!

—Jonathan Caswell
