Got your picture, Rosaline
The hardest part of leavin'
Maybe somewhere on some city street
She's waitin', she's waitin'
And prayin' lord
Bring him back to me
But I ain't comin'
I ain't comin', no

Carved our names in
The willow tree
To prove that we been livin'
'Cause this ain't no life that's permanent
Now is it? Now is it?
'Cause roots rip up and turn to walkin' feet
Believe it, believe it

'Cause every day's gettin' harder still
I can't forget it and probably never will
'Cause I left my heart across that river wide
On the Brooklyn side

Give me sunlight, give me sympathy
No soul goes unforgiven
Oh sweet sorrow hangin' over me
I need you, I need you
You help me write all these songs I sing
I love you, I love you

Rosaline, oh Rosaline
You're still in that willow right there next to me
So if you see that girl, tell her I'm standin' by
On the Brooklyn side

Rosaline, oh Rosaline
I did what I done so I could set you free
And you can find my heart in that river tide
On the Brooklyn side
