Waylon Jennings Black Rose Lyrics

Last updated: 05/04/2010 12:00:00 PM

Way down in Virginia
Amongst the tall grown sugar canes
Lived a simple man and a dominecker hen
And a rose of a different name

The first time I felt lightening
I was standing in drizzling rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin
And a rose of a different name

Well, The devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on a simple headed man
And help me leave that black rose alone
(whoop, whoop)

When the devil made that woman
Lord, He threw the pattern away
She were built for speed with the tools you need
To make a new fool every day

Way down deep and dirty
On the darkest side of shame
I caught a cane cuttin' man and a bottle of gin
and a rose of a different name
