Rosa Lee McFall
    #2858345 - 07/05/04 11:03 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Does anyone agree that this is the saddest song ever written? I've heard acoustic Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band do it. I just learned it on guitar and I thought I would share these simple yet heart-wrenching lyrics:

Rosa Lee McFall

Out on the lonely hillside in a cabin low and small
Lived the sweetest rose of color my Rosa Lee McFall

Her eyes were bright and shining and her voice was sweet to me
Knew that I would always love her and I hoped that she loved me

My eyes turned to me, my darlin' and this is what she said:
You know that I would always love you when you and I are wed.

Then God way up in heaven one day for her did call
I lost my bride, oh how I loved her, my Rosa Lee McFall

I searched this wide world over through cities great and small
But I never found another like my Rosa Lee McFall
