I Threw Away The Rose LyricsArtist: Stonewall Jackson
Success for me lay just around the corner
I thought my social friends could help me make me 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
[ dobro ]
I stood by and watched the bottle take control of me
The turn I made was not the turn I'd planned
I watched my social standings slip away from me
Yes I watched the bottle slowly take command
Oh now I'm paying for the days...
Yes I kept the wine and threw away the rose
