Give My Love to 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
To the words 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 home in Louisiana
Just to see my Rose and get to know my son

Give my love to Rose, won't you mister
Hey give her this money and tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's proud of him
Don't forget to give my love to Rose

Just tell 'em I said thanks for waiting for me
Tell my boy to help his mom now he's got be a man*
You tell my Rose to go and find another
You tell her I'll understand*

Mister see this bag's got all my money
I ain't much nor lasting long I know*
God bless you for finding me this morning
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

Give my love to Rose, won't you mister
You give her that money and tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my son that his father loved him*
And don't forget to give my love to Rose
