Lyrics

Rosemary and Time
(G. Capps | Grey Sun Songs | BMI)

I learned to fly in a steel machine
I’ve been a million miles without any wings
From town to town singing my songs
I’ve got a rusted crown I’m the king of being gone

Rosemary and precious time
What a fool I’ve been
To think you were mine
Damn these eyes when they’re open
They’re too wise to be broken
So I drink another beer
to drive away the fears
Tell you what you want to hear
I’m lonesome my dear

The first fires of winter killed them chimney sweeps
My daddy kept on burning while I watched my momma weep
Desperation and badness
Nothing ever good comes from a bad kiss

Rosemary and precious time
What a fool I’ve been
To think you were mine
Damn these eyes when they’re open
They’re demise is in hoping
So I drink another beer
to drive away the tears
Tell you what you want to hear
I’m lonesome my dear

Rosemary and precious time
What a fool I’ve been
To think you were mine
