A                         E                           A
I found him by the railroad track this mornin’,
E                    A
I could see that he was nearly dead.
D                                             A
I knelt down beside him and I listened,

Just to hear the words the dyin’ fella said.
A                  E                  A
He said, “They let me out of prison out in Frisco.
E                           A
For ten long years I paid for what I’ve done.

I was tryin’ to get back to Luisi-ana,
E                                                    A
To see my Rose and get to know my son.


D                                                             A
Give my love to Rose, please, won’t you, mister?
E                                                A
Take her all my money; tell her,      buy some pretty clothes.

Tell my boy that daddy’s so proud of him,
E                                              A
and don’t forget to give my love to Rose.

Won’t you tell him I said thanks for waitin’ for me?

Tell my boy to help his mom at home.
D                                             A
Tell my Rose to try to find an-other,

‘Cause it ain’t right that she should live a-lone.

Mister, here’s a bag with all my money;
E                      A
It won’t last them long the way it goes.

God bless you for findin’ me this mornin’.

Now, don’t forget to give my love to Rose.
