Webb Pierce & Red Sovine Little Rosa Lyrics


I have gone to visit the grave of a friend of mine and as I walked thru the grave yard

I noticed this man kneeling down by the grave of a child

And in his hand he held a big red rose and tears were streaming down his cheeks

I walked over and laid a hand on his shoulder and started to talk to him

And during the course of our conversation and in his broken English

This is the story just as he told it to me

He said to me Mister I've walked down the street today

And I passed about the big flower shop

I walked in and I asked the man in the shop I said boss how much is for one red rose

Then he looked at me with one big frown and he says it's one dollar please

But in a buyin' buyer was well dressed blonde lady walked in

And she says how much is for one red rose

And he looked at her with one big smile and he says ten cents

Now I said boss how come to you to charge me a dollar for the rose

And you charged the young lady only ten cents

Then he said look Mister you tell me why you want the rose

And maybe I give it to you for not

I said boss I'm a hard working man working a railroad and gonna make too much money

And I got a little girl and her name was Rosa o Rosa's just about this high boss

Every day when I'd come home from the work

A little Rosa come running to meet her papa

And she'd throw her little arms around my neck and say papa and I'd say Rosa

But one day boss I've come home from the work I don't see Rosa

I looked down by the railroad track and I see one big crowd

I'd go down and I pushed the crowd this a way and pushed the crowd that a way

There was at my feet lay my little Rosa and that's why I want the rose boss

I wanna put it on little Rosa's grave

Then man he didn't say not but he picked the biggest and the reddest rose

And he gave it to me

And I said thank you boss thank you very much

And though she's gone you see she's still the world to me

To me she'll always be that little girl of mine
