She was hanging in a pawn shop in Memphis, TN. 
  C                   G                      D
She was young & high strung her name was Rosalie,
   D                                 C            D
Her neck was long & slender, they said all the pearls are fine,
   C                     G                      D
I gave up my wedding ring so I could make her mine,
Then she rode with me to Nashville, where we joined a 
C                                D                                     
Country band, played a thousand different honky tonks
   G                      D             D                        
And a thousand one night stands, Thru good times & ss
            C                D                 C||
the bad times she gives me company, she made a nice -i
     G                      D
sweet home with me my little Rosalie,

Chorus  D      C      G     D        C     G         D     
Rosalie, Rosalie, Rosalie, no one else got so close to me
   C                     G                     D
Although there has been others, there will never be, 
    C          G                 D             C
Another one quite like my little Rosalie, No there will
  G                          D
Never be another one like my Rosalie,

2nd verse D                      C              D
Well the money wasn't good, it was few & far between,
C                           G                         D
But then he'd start drinkin' & the fiddle split the scene
   D                       C                     D
Old Rosie stood besides me, thru the highs & the lows
    C                     G                   D
And I was playing in a band, paying thru the nose

 D                                   C                  D
Well I left her where I found her, and I walked out with a gun
      C                    G                      D
I was half cocked & loaded I went looking for someone
    D                            C                    D
Then I came back in the springtime, I promised her I would
   C                    G                   D
But Rosalie long gone, this time it was for good,

Chorus         3rd verse
     D                           C                D
Then late last night in the evening, I saw her on T V
      C                  G                     D
Another guitar man was a holding my pretty Rosalie,
    D                     C                         D
Her neck was long & slender, and her body curves so fine,
        C                    G                  D          
I weep & now remember when sweet Rosalie was mine,
