Waits, Tom - 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

  7. David Bauer

    I kinda feel like a trampled rose

    David Bauer

    I am that trampled rose

  8. David Bauer

    What's the medicine for a love stricken heart that would give her roses to be trampled with her disgust

    David Bauer

    The medicine appears to be the belief that GOD hears my every prayer & loves me too much to leave me stuck like this forever

  9. Dora Maria Vassiliou

    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

  13. rav3n83

    That made as much "sense" as Obama's "change".

    punkpoetry

    Conservatives trying to grasp any cultural artifact that's remotely original and interesting is the gift that keeps on giving

    emiliano palleres

    Don´t compare this piece of art to Obama, you virgin fuck

    John Doe

    This guy...

  14. Alexander McCormick

    Only a world leader even in its biggest slumps. Lol. Haters gonna hate I supposed. Clever little devil, you.

  15. rhodiuz

    misery is the river of the world † everything goes to hell anyway

  16. TheSargassumBaccifer

    The whole world's pretty shitty.
    Tom Waits is the not shitty part........

  17. Osmar Z. G. Portugal FH

    With Tom Waits, the author.

  18. Justin Kincer

    I think you may have forgotten a word here, because clearly you meant to say that America's government is pretty shitty. People are people all over the world.

    Hippijade

    I'd love to have the American Government of 6 years ago instead of the shitty American Government we have in 2018.

  19. NaukyMC

    I would say he is more the voice of people's suffering. All people of the Earth that have endured hardships, alcoholism, heartbreak, gambling have their feelings expressed by this man. He is a voice like no other.

  20. xesredum1

    thats why he sings his songs in this heartbroken tortured style

  21. China man

    But America's pretty shitty.

  22. xesredum1

    Tom Waits is the voice of America
