Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Rosie”

Tom Waits – Jackson Browne

Yet another heartbreaking ode to a woman from Tom Waits. This one comes from Closing Time.

Well I’m sitting on a windowsill, blowing my horn
Nobody’s up except the moon and me,
And a lazy old tomcat on a midnight spree
All that you left me was a melody.
Rosie, why do you evade? Rosie, how can I persuade? Rosie…

A great album track from Running on Empty.
