Midnight’s fallin’ on a rose

midnitrose

Hear that freight train whistle blowin’
every night from down the road
moonlight tears are broken hearted
midnight’s fallin’ on a rose

never did forget my darlin’
never will she care to know
winter windows watch her garden
disappear beneath the snow

moonlight tears can see her partin’
midnight trains won’t let her go
lead this lonely broken hearted
memory from in my bones

hear that freight train whistle blowin’
every night from down the road

moonlight tears are broken hearted

midnight’s fallin’ on a rose

when that pain begins to sharpen
Lord my heart it turns to stone
 
don’t care where that trains a goin’
take me far away from home

hear that freight train whistle blowin’
every night from down the road

moonlight tears are broken hearted

I ain’t long for this old world

I ain’t long for this old world
and
I’m done tasting my own tears
a desperado can’t chase love

with life in prison facing years
and
 if you see me walk alone
outside those bars I’m hidin’ in
an empty house replaced my home
a women’s heart replaced by sin
 

and I ain’t long for this old world
because its left me lost my dear
without a way to carry on 
a
love that’s never disappeared
cause there ain’t nothing goin’ right
without her love I’m livin’ wrong
and I don’t even need the lights
to see I’m not where I belong     

I ain’t long for this old world
I’ve longed to lay beside her here
without a bottle by the bed
without becoming my worst fear
my buddies tell me to be strong
but I’ve been running like a deer
from words I’ve written in a song…
without her love it won’t be long ©
