Israel Nash – Pink Long-Stem Rose lyrics
Honky-tonking on Fridays, you stood all alone
In a dress made for the summer
With a picture of a pink long-stem rose

My bonnie lie over the bar room as I ran to her side
I inquire her name and purpose
Took a drink and swam in her eyes

Said I call you on Monday no matter what you say
Darling we'll marry
Though your farther won't like me

And you, you quoted me scripture, yes you, you cleansed me from sin
Sorry I was late to our wedding
I was down at the bar again

Well we, we moved to Kentucky where I worked the land
We were only to stay for a short while
But the days turned years 'neath these hands

And lover I'm sorry
But I did this unto me
Can't you forgive me
For being so lonely

And love I'm sure to leave you, yes babe, I'm sure to die
Bury me with a bottle of bourbon
And a picture of your sweet blue eyes

But I, I saved up some money, so you could go
See your mother down in Memphis
Buy another pink long-stem rose

And lover did you see
What the bottle done to me
Won't you forgive me
Guess I'll take in the lonely
I'll take in the lonely
I'll take in the lonely
I'll take in the lonely
