I found him by the railroad track this mornin'
I could see that he was nearly dead
I knelt down beside him and I listened
Just to hear the words the dyin' fellow said

He said they let me out of prison down in Frisco
For 10 long years I've paid for what I've done
I was tryin' to get back to Louisiana
To see my Rose and get to know my son

Give my love to Rose, please won't you mister?
Take her all my money, tell her buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy that daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

Won't you tell 'em? Thanks for waitin' for me
Tell my boy to help his mom at home
Tell my Rose to try to and find another
For it ain't right that she should live alone

Mister here's the bag with all my money
It won't last them long the way it goes
God bless you for findin' me this mornin'
Don't forget to give my love to Rose

Give my love to Rose, please won't you mister?
Take her all my money, tell her buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy that daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose
