Give My Love To Rose Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American IV: The Man Comes Around

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

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 his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

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
For 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
And 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 to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

I just love Johnny Cash, and this song is just awesome, it's so touchy. God Bless his soul. Rest in peace Johnny.

One of Johnny's best! Such a sad story. It ranks right up there with "Flesh and Blood" in my personal list of favorites, and I was married to a musician for 28 years besides being a published poet myself!

yes johnny you are missed by millions. i first saw johnny cash in st louis mo. at jonnie rion hillbillie theme park in 1957 i think johnny cash was probally thebest country entertainer that has ever graced the stage at the ryman auditorium although he's gone we still have his music and i thank god for that.

i wish you were still a live

Great, indeed ! Johnny sung the most heart-rending jailhouse songs I ever heard. For me, this song, like Folsom Prison and Doin' my time are pure blues, even if the music and the way of singing are country. That's the proof that many country songs are like white blues...
I saw him in Paris in 1990... Nobody who listen one time yours songs can forget you, Johnny....

6 typos /wrong words used in the above lyrics. its "out" in Frisco. not "down".
"that" daddys so proud. not "his".
Wont cha tell 'em.not tell them. its waitin. not waiting.

"cause" not "for" it right..
its "now" not "and" dont forget to give my love to Rose.
last chorus is their is no "to" in tell her "to" buy some pretty cloths.

just sayin. gotta get it right.
