"Black Rose" as written by Edward F. Setser and Troy Harold Seals....
Way down in Virginia
Amongst the tall grown sugar canes
Lived a simple man and a Dominique hen
And a rose of a different name.

Well, the first time I fell lightly
I was standing in the drizzling rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin
And a rose of a different name.

Well, the devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord, put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone.

When the devil made that woman
Lord, she threw the pattern away
She was built for speed with the tools
You need to make a new fool every day.

Way down deep and dirty
On the darker side of shame
I caught a cane cuttin' man with a bottle of gin
With a 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 a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone.

The devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord, put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone...
