Jackie Greene – The Red And The Rose lyrics

Well I'm a sinner, and you're a saint
Baby I love your new coat of paint
So i'll keep on singing till these blues turn to gold
I'll test the poison, i'll break the law
Write your name on a highway wall
They say the higher you go, the better you are
But the harder you'll hit when you fall

Baby I can't go running on empty
You take the red from the rose
All I've got is what you've left me

Now a dollar saved is a dollar lost
Look at what all these feelings cost
I'm down on a dime, wasting my time
And I can't seem to find words I've lost

So ring around the rosey babe
You might think that you've got it made
But everyone knows, you keep changing your clothes
There's a bill that will never be paid

And baby I can't go running on empty
You take the red from the rose
Hide that picture, man it always tempts me
