Los Lobos – The Lady And The Rose lyrics
On the barren slopes of a thousand hopes
Where a warm wind blows
To a place where I could rest my bones

All my life I've worked the earth
For what it's worth
Sun and dirt is all I've ever known

Gone this way so many times
To make the climb
In the way I always do and will

But this day I heard a sound
As I looked around
And there she was standing on the hill

Blue, the color of her flowing dress
She touched my head with a hand to bless
I stood as if my legs had turned to stone
Brown, the color of her skin like mine
Said in a voice all too divine
"From this day, son, you'll never be alone"

The sweetest music filled the air
Gone were all my cares
Felt like I was walking in a dream

Said pick the roses from around her feet
Like I had never seen
"Take them down to all who don't believe"

Blue, the color of her flowing dress
She touched my head with a hand to bless
I stood as if I my legs had turned to stone
Brown, the color of her skin like mine
Said in a voice all too divine
"From this day, son, you'll never be alone"
