Two Gallants – The Trembling Of The Rose tab


     C               Em       
why must it come to this?
       F             C
you disown me with a kiss
        C              G
another number on your list
           C       Em
yes that's me

[as previous verse]
but oh girl what have I done?
another fool blind by the sun
oh which way shall I run


but who knows what is right or wrong?
payed your debt and carry on
and no I don't belong
thats plain to see
I guess I'll take your stress in stride
the hill is deep, the water's wide
you know I died
F                  C
the day you set me free

[as previous verses etc]
but what good is living for
when there's no knock on the door
no shelter from the storm
settin' sea?
but if you comfort me 'til dawn
I'd sing your lonesome song
pack my things
and I'll be gone aimlessly

but with your high heels and your mace
you tell me I'm out of place
rip my eyes out of my face with ease
and if I had one inch of pride
you took that too
when you said goodbye
you know i died
the day you set me free

well I dreamt of you last night
and I woke to hate my life
good God I'm sick of sight
can't you see?
but I must remain composed
'neath the trembling of the rose
but you left me so exposed faithlessly

and look out mama I can't see straight
just woke up and it's getting late
and I'm as full of hate
as you used to be
so in the hour of my demise
I'll recall your empty eyes
you know I died
the day you set me free
