The Black Crowes – Wilted Rose Lyrics

The Black Crowes Wilted Rose Lyrics (feat. Lainey Wilson)

It is time to say farewell
Now the black horse has come
It is time to lay your guns down
And raise your hands to the sun
With all your arrows broken
Your fate sealed with a kiss
They’ve gathered all the suspects
But there’s one that they missed

She held a wilted rose
Under a darkening sky
She held a wilted rose
Crying when I looked behind

Nothing but dust
And the narrowing way
Now there’s no one to trust
And you like it that way
Like a snake in the water, yeah
That stays underneath
Ready to poison
From between her teeth

She held a wilted rose
Under a darkening sky
She held a wilted rose
Crying when I looked behind
Hear her cry, I can hear her cry

Oh, yeah, yeah
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh
Oh
Oh

She held a wilted rose
Under a darkening sky
She held a wilted rose
Crying when I looked behind
