Can someone post the full original lyrics to Rosie's House of Sin? This is the only reference to the song on the entire internet and I'd be grateful. It's an old family favorite that nobody seems to remember all the verses to.

This was requested in a thread about a different song. I found it in, of all places, a discussion forum at Shirley Maclaine's web site (and I tidied it up a bit). The person who posted these lyrics said "I believe it was written by Damen (sic) Black." I assume that's Damon Black, but I regard that information as unreliable. This song has been mentioned elsewhere at Mudcat and attributed to Randy Sparks; however, I can't find any mention of it at any of the sites I normally use for reference.


ROSIE'S HOUSE OF SIN
(Randy Sparks)

If ya'll would be kind enough to help me out with the chorus, when I say "House of Sin," just yell back, "House of Sin!"

1. Just outside the county line
There's a big red neon sign
Sayin' "Everybody's welcome. Come on in."
You can take your troubles there
And come out without a care.
It's a little place called Rosie's House of Sin.

CHORUS: House of Sin, House of Sin,
Know that everybody's welcome; come on in.
You can take your troubles there,
And come out without a care,
It's a little place called Rosie's House of Sin.

2. Though the shades are pulled and drawn,
Looks like everybody's gone,
But there's always plenty goin' on within.
Duncan Hines recommends
Bring your family and your friends
Use your Visa card at Rosie's House of Sin. CHORUS

3. One day the sheriff came to town.
He thought he'd close old Rosie down.
With bold determination he walked in,
But three days later he came out,
And he proclaimed it with a shout.
It was bargain day at Rosie's House of Sin. CHORUS

4. Now, if you're down and out
Don't let finance keep you out.
Even though your pocket's growin' mighty thin,
Come on in; you won't regret it.
Don't be afraid to ask for credit.
Use our layaway plan at Rosie's House of Sin. CHORUS

I have just sent an e-mail asking him [RS] who wrote the song, Rosie's House of Sin. I will post the reply if or when.

Part of my e-mail to RS:

"I need to know, please, who wrote the song "Rosie's House of Sin"?

Thank you"


The necessary part of the response from Randy Sparks:

"I did. ...   It was a mainstay of my solo act.   ...

I wrote it aboard my ship, the USS Princeton, when I was in the Navy.

Cheers! RS"

Jimmy Carter just last week, finally got a chance to speak
He said my oh what an awful mess were in
I'm sending peanuts to the moon
And I promise very soon
We'll have a smoother spread at Rosie's House of Sin

House of Sin
House of Sin
If you're ever in the neighborhood drop in
Dew drop in (This line is done with much melodrama, of course.LOL)
If you're ever down and out don't let finances keep you out
'Cuz they give green stamps at Rosie's house of sin.

The verse used to change with the presiding president.    You can reach me at CJSingsBlues@AOL.com if I can be of further help.   I am trying to find the words to a song called "35 Years Ago."
