Cody Canada & The Departed - Ballad of Rosalie Lyrics

She was hanging in a pawn shop
In Memphis Tennessee
She was young and high strung
And her name was Rosalie

Her neck was long and slender
She set off the pearl so fine
I gave up my wedding ring
So i could make her mine

Then she rode with me to Nashville
Where we joined a country band
Played the smoky honkytonks
And a thousand one night stands

The good times and the bad times
She kept me company
She made the nights less lonely
My sweet rosalie


Rosalie, Rosalie, Rosalie
No woman ever got so close to me
Although there have been others
There will never be
Another one
Quite like my Rosalie

No, there'll never be another one
Like my Rosalie

Well the money wasn't good
The gigs were few and far between
The drummer he stopped drinkin
And the fiddler split the scene

But Rosie stayed beside me
Through the highs and through the lows
When i was playing in the band
And payin through the nose

I left her where i found her
And i walked off with a gun
I was half cocked and loaded
I went lookin for someone

But i came back in the springtime
I promised her i would
But Rosalie was long gone
This time gone for good


Then late last friday evening
I saw her on tv
Another guitar man was holding
My pretty Rosalie

Her neck was long and slender
Her body curved so fine
I weep when i remember
That sweet Rosalie was mine
