Willie Nelson Black Rose Lyrics

Last updated: 03/27/2013 04:22:25 AM

Way down in Louisiana amongst the tall tall sugar cane
Lived a simple man and a domineerin' hen and a rose of a different name
The first time I fell lightly I was standing in the drizzlin' rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin and a rose of a different name
The devil made me do it the first time the second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on this simple headed man and help me leave that black rose alone
[ harmonica ]
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
You'll find this cane raisin' man doing it again with a rose of a different name
The devil made me do it the first time the second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on this simple headed man and help me leave that black rose alone
The devil made me do it the first time the second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on this simple headed man and help me leave that black rose alone
[ guitar - harmonica ]
