Another Man's Vine Lyrics

Artist: Tom Waits
Album: Blood Money

Bougainvillea's bloom and wind
Be careful mind the strangle vines
The rose is climbing over blind
'Cause the sun is on the other side
The bees will find their honey
The sweetest every time
Around a Red Rose
I see a red rose, a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine
Golden Willie's gone to war
He left his young wife on the shore
Will she be steadfast everyday?
While Golden Willie is far away
Along the way her letters end
She never reads what Willie sends
Now I see a red rose
I smell a red rose
I'll pick a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine

"Now I see a red rose
I smell a red rose
I'll pick a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine"

Pretty sure there isnt "I'll pick a" in the entire song. Just ends with

"I smell a red rose, red rose blooming on another man's vine"

J is correct.

maybe its in the booklet for the album.....I don't know
I've seen that happen before, although usually said lyrics are in parenthesis

I checked the booklet for the album - there is no "I'll pick a" there either.
