GUEST,999 Lyr Req: lost on a train line? (9) Lyr Add: GIVE MY LOVE TO ROSE (Johnny Cash) 16 Mar 13

Words and music by Johnny Cash.
As recorded by Johnny Cash, 1957. (Sun 279)

I found him by the railroad track this morning
I could see that he was nearly dead
I knelt down beside him and I listened
Just to hear the words the dying fellow said

He said they let me out of prison out in Frisco
For ten long years, I paid for what I'd done
I was trying to get back to Louisiana
To see my Rose and get to know my son

CHORUS: Give my love to Rose, please won't you, mister?
Take her all my money; tell her buy some pretty clothes.
Tell my boy that daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose.

Won't you tell them I said thanks for waiting for me.
Tell my boy to help his mom at home.
Tell my Rose to try to find another
'Cause it ain't right that she should live alone.

Mister, here's a bag with all my money
It won't last them long the way it goes
God bless you for finding me this morning
Now don't forget to give my love to Rose. CHORUS


Just in case anyone else is lookin'.
