Ray Charles Days Of Wine And Roses Lyrics

Last updated: 06/29/2012 12:00:00 PM

[with a jauntier melody than Andy Williams' version]

The days of wine and roses laugh and run away like a child at play
Through the meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked "nevermore" that wasn't there before
The lone-ly night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

[brief instrumental break]

The days of wine and roses

[more instrumental-rest of the first verse]

The lonely-----the night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you
