Tom Petty The Golden Rose Lyrics

Last updated: 08/11/2006 12:00:00 PM

Well, The Golden Rose sailed with a broken man
Going south
Got on board with a woman to lead him around
By the mouth

[Chorus:]
And it's goodbye, Golden Rose
Yeah, it's goodbye, Golden Rose

Well, the captain who swears if he speaks at all
Wears a gun
Got a first maid who's never quite on the ball
For his son

[Chorus]

Wish I was back in her arms again
Wish I was holding her tight
Wish I was back in her arms again
Safe from the night

She stood on the shore and she waved to me:
"Come back home"
Many a-night I would think of her
All alone

[Chorus]
