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
