Rose Marie, please come home we still miss you.
More than you could poss-ib-ly know
Things have change Since you been gone, my darling
No shoulder to cry on now that your gone
I hope that one day with Gods help we’ll find you
Alive and strong and pretty as you are.
No stone unturned until we see you walking
home to all who love you, every day.
Rose Marie, please come home we still love you.
Wish I could tell you, how much you mean to me.
Just one last time, you see I need my sis–ter.
Justice will be served– in your name.
I hope that one day with Gods help we’ll find you
Alive and strong and pretty as you are.
No stone unturned until we see you walking
home to all who love you, every day.
home to all who love you, every day.
