(Ackles)
Good to see you again, Rosie
I know I've changed a lot since then
You're lookin' fine, babe

Three years that ain't long, Rosie
I still remember our song
When you were mine, babe

Times change, times change I know
But it sure moves slow
Down river when you're locked away

Hey why didn't you write, Rosie
I stayed awake most every night
Countin' my time babe

Oh no I ain't mad Rosie
I know you had to mind your dad
But just a line babe

Oh sure I remember then
We went off to school
Ain't that right
Well he ain't no fool

He's a good man Rosie
Hold him tight as you can
Don't ask me why babe

Yeah nice seein' you again Rosie
Me I got things to do
Well good-bye babe

Chorus

Chorus

Rosie down river
Down river when you're locked away
Rosie I'm losing
Down river
