Give My Love to Rose (Cash Johnny)

by Johnny Cash Recorded 7/1/57 Number 13 - Country Chart 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'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 Chorus: 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 him 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: 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
