The Statler Brothers - Bed of Roses Lyrics

 

She was called a scarlet woman by the people

Who would go to church but left me in the street

With no parents of my own, I never had a home

And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat

She found me outside one Sunday morning

Taking money from a man I didn't know

She took me in and wiped away my childhood

A woman of the streets this Lady Rose

This bed of roses that I lay on

Where I was taught to be a man

This bed of roses where I'm living

Is the only kind of love I understand

She was a handsome woman just thirty-four

Who was spoken to in town by very few

She managed a late evening business

Like most of the town wished they could do

And I learned all the things that a man should know

From a woman not approved of I suppose

But she died knowing that I really loved her

Off life's bramble bush, I picked a rose
