Lyrics and Chords

No one knows where old Rosie goes
No one knows where she gone
No one knows where old Rosie goes
But she gone, she gone, she gone

/ D - G - / / / D A D - /

She got her name off a priest from Spain
And that name is Rosie Garcia
She could pray in Spanish, she could pray in Latin
In English she could say, "Pleased to meet ya"

/ D - G - / D - A - / D - G - / D A D - /

She had her first boy when she was fifteen
And she called him Miguel Garcia
And he falls asleep flat on the floor
After drinking a pint of tequila


She had her next boy when she was nineteen
And she called him Robert José
And he had a job for a while in town
Before he went away

He married that girl who said she was Spanish
But looked just like Rosie's sister
And he said he dated her seventeen times
Before he finally kissed her


Rosie, she's seen her share of dyin' 
And stirred her share of beans
The people believe in observable justice
But that ain't what Rosie's seen

The young girls, they lay their plastic wreath down
Where somebody once rolled a truck
But Rosie's too old to fall on her knees
To the patron saints of luck
