I Threw Away The Rose Lyrics

Artist: Del Reeves
Album: Six Of One Half A Dozen Of The Other

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 control of me
The turn I made was not the one I'd planned
I watched my social standings slip away from me
While I watched the bottle slowly take command

But now I'm paying for the days...
Yes I kept the wine and threw away the rose
