I was headed up North on an Amtrack train,
When I got there, all it did was rain.
Rosie, help me forget my pain
When Iâ€™m so far from home.
There ainâ€™t nothinâ€™ that Iâ€™ve ever seen,
Like my Rosie ridinâ€™ round in a red limousine.
Everybody say she look the queen of the now
So come on Rosie and smile x2
Come on Rosie and smile,
Weâ€™ll bring it back in style.
Come on Rosie and smile.
Well the winter came and winter went,
When I woke up all my moneyâ€™d been spent.
Rosie gave up eatinâ€™ pork for Lent,
Now she donâ€™t bring home the bacon no more.
If the ocean was whiskey,
And I was a gup,
Iâ€™d swim to the bottom
And Iâ€™d drink my way up.
Rosie, sip on your Dixie cup,
Iâ€™m in no shape to drive tonight.
Now those Concord boys
They sing so well
A little off key
But you canâ€™t really tell.
This old guitar has been through hell
But my Rosie, she donâ€™t seem to mind.
