Long way going to get my medicine
Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wren

Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday

I found it in the street, at first I did not see
Lying at my feet a trampled rose

Passing the hat in church
It never stops going around

You never pay just once
To get the job done

What I've done to you, I know you've done to me
So what happened to the trampled rose?

In the muddy streets
With the fireworks and the leaves

A blind man with a cup I asked
Would you play "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine"

I know that rose just like I know my name
The one I gave my love, I swear it was the same
Now I find it in the street a trampled rose
