BLACK ROSE (Billy Joe Shaver) Billy Joe Shaver - 1973 Way down in Virginia Amongst the tall grown sugar cane Lived a simple man and a dominique hen And a rose of a different name Well the first time I felt lightnin' I was standin' in the drizzlin' rain With a tremblin' hand and a bottle of gin And a rose of a different name Yeah, the Devil made me do it the first time The second time I done it on my own Lord, put a handle on this simple headed man And help me leave that black rose alone (Harmonica Solo) When the Devil made that woman Lord, he threw the pattern away She was built for speed with the tools you need To make a new fool every day And way down deep and dirty On the darkest side of shame You'll find this cane-cuttin' man a-doin' it again With that rose of a different name The Devil made me do it the first time The second time I done it on my own Lord, put a handle on this simple headed man And help me leave that black rose alone Yeah, the Devil made me do it the first time The second time I done it on my own Lord, put a handle on this simple headed man And help me leave that black rose alone (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
