Like A Rose

Album: Like a Rose (2013)
  • I was only thirteen when Daddy died
    Mama started drinking, and my brother just quit trying
    I'm still bouncing back, Heaven only knows
    How I came out like a rose

    Ran off with what's his name when I turned eighteen
    He got me out of North Dakota, but it did not change a thing
    I left it in the yard all covered up with snow
    And I came out like a rose

    Sitting in this diner with a coffee in my hand
    Waiting on a bus to some promised land
    I got a one way ticket as far as it goes
    And I came out like a rose

    So I'm headed south to anywhere that ain't so damn cold
    Where I can warm my heart and shake the chill from my bones
    It took awhile to get here, it's been a long, hard road
    And I came out like a rose

    Sitting in this diner with a coffee in my hand
    Waiting on a bus to some promised land
    I got a one way ticket as far as it goes
    And I came out like a rose

    It took awhile to get here, it's been a long, hard road
    And I came out like a rose Writer/s: GUY CLARK, ASHLEY MONROE, JON RANDALL
