Waylon Jennings – Black Rose lyrics

Verse 1:
Way down in Virginia
Amongst the tall grown sugar canes
Lived a simple man and a domineering hen
And a rose of a different name

Verse 2:
The first time I fell lightning
I was standing in the drizzling rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin
And a rose of a different name

Chorus:
The devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone

Verse 3:
When the devil made that woman
Lord He threw the pattern away
She was built for speed with the tools you need
To make a new fool every day

Verse 4:
Way down deep and dirty
On the darker side of shame
I caught a cane cuttin' man with a bottle of gin
And a rose of a different name

Chorus:
The devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone

Chorus:
The devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone
