Tom Petty The Golden Rose Lyrics

Well the golden rose sailed with a broken man goin' south
Got on board with a woman to lead him 'round by the mouth

And it's goodbye golden rose
Yeah it's goodbye golden rose

Well the captain who swears if he speaks it all, wears a gun
Got a first mate who's never quite on the ball for a son

And it's goodbye golden rose
Yeah it's goodbye golden rose

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

And it's goodbye golden rose
Yeah it's goodbye golden rose
