Searching for the sunlight 
On this winter's day. 
Here in old Missoula, 
They locked the sun away. 
Come tomorrow morning 
I'll head for the Bozeman round 
And it's goodbye to old Missoula, sleepy town. 
I met a girl named Rosie, 
Sweet as she could be. 
But I guess that Rosie 
Didn't have eyes for me. 
Time it waits for no-one 
Lord, why did I hesitate? 
And it's goodbye to old Missoula, a day too late. 
Clouds that hang on the mountain 
They make me lonesome inside. 
And these four walls that surround me 
They leave me no place to hide. 
The show in this town is over 
Or maybe it never began 
And it's goodbye to old Missoula, I've done all I can.

Goodbye, Rosie - you'll never know 
And time says my love will pass 
But if I can remember your smiling face 
That's all of time that I ask 
The show in this town is over 
Or maybe it never began 
And it's goodbye to old Missoula, I've done all I can. 
Goodbye to old Missoula, 
Goodbye to old Missoula, 
Goodbye to old Missoula, sleepy town.
