Lesley N. Lyr Req: Rosalie the Prairie Flower (G F Root) (12) RE: Lyr Req: Rosalie, The Prairie Flower 22 Jan 00


It goes back to the 1850s and was popularized by the Christy Minstrels. The author on the original music was G.F. Wurzel - a pseudonym for George F. Root. Therefore it might be on Benjamin Tubb's site The Music of the American Civil War (http://pdmusic.org/civilwar.html). Try there, and I'll work on getting the lyrics here as well.
