Give My Love To Rose

Song Author Johnny Cash Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I found him by the [D7]railroad track this [G]morning
I could see that [D7]he was nearly [G]dead
[C]I knelt down beside him and I [G]listened
Just to [A7]hear the words the dying fellow [D7]said   

He [G]said they let me out of [D7]prison down in [G]Frisco
For ten long years I've [D7]paid for what I've [G]done
[C]I was trying to get back to Louisi[G]ana  
To [D7]see my Rose and get to know my [G]son  

[C]Give my love to Rose please won't you [G]mister
[D7]Take her all my money tell her to [G]buy some pretty clothes
[C]Tell my boy that daddy's so proud of [G]him  
And [D7]don't forget to give my love to [G]Rose

Won't you tell them I said [D7]thanks for waiting for [G]me  
Tell my boy to [D7]help his mom at [G]home
[C]Tell my Rose to try to find [G]another
Cause [A7]it ain't right that she should live [D7]alone

[G]Mister here's a [D7]bag with all my [G]money
It won't last them [D7]long the way it [G]goes
[C]God bless you for finding me this [G]morning
Now [D7]don't forget to give my love to [G]Rose

[C]Give my love to Rose please won't you [G]mister
[D7]Take her all my money tell her to [G]buy some pretty clothes
[C]Tell my boy that daddy's so proud of [G]him  
And [D7]don't forget to give my love to [G]Rose


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 down in Frisco
For ten long years I've paid for what I've done
I was trying to get back to Louisiana
To see my Rose and get to know my son

Give my love to Rose please won't you mister
Take her all my money tell her to 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

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