  • According to the 2001 publication The Essential Ewan MacColl Songbook: Sixty Years Of Songmaking, MacColl wrote this song for Fitzroy Coleman, "a West Indian musician of wonderful ability and old-world charm"; the Rosalie alluded to was probably Rosalie Williams an early girlfriend from the composer's days in theatre workshop, and is not to be confused with the Cole Porter or Bob Seger songs of the same name.
    "Rosalie" is copyrighted Belwin Mills Music, 1959. >>
