trampled rose lyrics – alison krauss

long way going to
get my medicine
sky’s the autumn grey of a lonely wren

piano from a window played
gone tomorrow, gone yesterday

i found it in the street
at first i did not see
lying at my feet
a trampled rose

p*ssing the hat in church
it never stops going around

you never pay just once
to get the job done

what i done to me,
i done to you
what happened to the trampled rose?

in the muddy street
with the fireworks and leaves

a blind man with a cup i asked
would he sing ‘kisses sweeter than wine’

i know that rose,
like i know my name
the one i gave my love,
it was the same
now i find it in the street,
a trampled rose
