I Threw Away The Rose Lyrics

Artist: Conway Twitty
Album: Country

Once I lived a life of wine and roses
And I drank a lot back then for one concern
Success for me lay just around the corner
I thought my social friends would help me make the turn

But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
a victim of the drunken life I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose
[ steel ]
I stood by and watched the bottle take a man of me
The turn I made was not the one I'd planned
And I watched my social friends slip away from me
While I watched the bottle slowly take command
But now I'm paying for...
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose
