about

This one was inspired by Blind Lemon Jefferson‘s “See that my Grave is Kept Clean“. “Streets of Laredo“ crept in there, too.

lyrics

Save the Roses


There´s one kind favour I ask of you
There´s one kind favour I ask of you
There´s one kind favour I ask of you
Don´t carve no epithaph in my stone

Did you ever hear that thudding sound
Did you ever hear that thudding sound
Did you ever hear that thudding sound
of clods falling on the ground?

Save your roses for a summer´s day
Save your roses for a summer´s day
Save your roses for a summer´s day
the autumn rain will wash them away
