SECOND HAND ROSE
(Recorded by Roy Drusky) (Died 2004)
Second hand shoes, Second hand clothes
They all call her Second Hand Rose
They all think they're pretty smart
But Rose don't have a Second Hand heart.
I love a little girl who lives across the way
I go to see her nearly ev'ry day
And when I get the money, I'll take her far away
So the town can't gather 'round her and say.
They tease her about her clothes and things
It's hard to believe some folks can be so mean
But when I get the money, I'll buy her the best
I'll take Rose, you can have all the rest.
