Alison Krauss - Trampled Rose Lyrics



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

Passing 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

    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

    Passing 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

    I like very few covers of Tom Waits songs...and it's incredibly rare that I think someone goes as far as to improve one...but Alison Krauss does here. Phenomenal performance!

    Tom Waits song..... beautifully done.  One a gin soaked voice, the other, an angel.  Love them both.  Nobody can re-do Waits!!!!!!!!!! She, however, nailed it.
