The Guess Who is een Canadese rockband. Het festival Le Guess Who? is naar hen vernoemd. De geschiedenis van The Guess Who gaat terug tot 1958, toen Chad Allan (zang) in Winnipeg zijn band Al and the Silvertones oprichtte. Deze band veranderde haar naam later in Chad Allan and the Reflections en daarna in The Expressions. Nadat in december 1965 Burton Cummings (zang, piano) zich bij de groep voegde en in mei 1966 Allan en Ashley de band verlieten, werd The Guess Who als vaste bandnaam gekozen. In de jaren 70 scoorden ze met onder meer "American Woman", "Dancing Fool" en "Clap For The Wolfman". Bachman vertrok na ruzies met Burton Cummings en zou tegen die tijd zelf succesvol worden met Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

Songtekst

Rosanne, I gotta take it on the lam,
What do you think you been doin'
Rosanne, you need another kind of man,
What do you think you been doin'
I left my evil ways back in my burnin' days
Nights were spent just to hold you,
You left your lovin' charms in someone else's arms
What do you think you been doin', you're my ruin,
Rosanne.

The way a lovebird flies a foolish heart just dies,
Trapped in your situation,
There's nothin' I can say, I guess it's been that way
Since the dawn of creation,
Rosanne, I gotta take it on the lam,
What do you think you been doing'
Rosanne, you need another kind of man,
What do you think you been doing', you're my ruin, Rosanne.

Could have prevented all this, if we had taken the time,
Could have prevented all this, if we had made up our minds,
Rosanne.
