Yellow rose, Waco moon
Quit too late, you're gonna die too soon
Woman with a needle and silver spoon
Holed up singing the devil's tune

Playing the blues,
Paying your dues,
Speeding your young life away
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day

I can't say I felt so sad
The truth is, I think I'm mad
At the selfish way you left your dad
When you know what a hard-luck time he's had

Sleeping through
A dream come true
You just threw all that talent away
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day

Ooh, slipping away
Ooh, New Year's Day

I threw the phone against the wall
Falling apart when I got the call
Went out walking with the weight of it all
That's when it hit me like a waterfall

I'm playing the blues,
Paying my dues,
Speeding my young life away.
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day.

Ooh, slipping away
Ooh, New Year's Day

Yellow rose, Waco moon
Quit too late, you die too soon
To the bitter end, tried and true,
Goodbye old friend, we'll be missing you
